Year 1

During the first year, in total 60 ECTS, each university gives course elements on basic BME-topics. The content of year 1, offered by the partner universities is comparable and will contain the following:

alt Medical course elements
  • Anatomy and Histology
  • (Patho)physiology
  • Ethics

General engineering course elements
  • Methodical Design
  • Project Management
  • Biochemistry
  • Bio transport
  • Working culture
alt Engineering course elements, focused on diagnostics
  • Imaging Techniques
  • Biomedical Instrumentation
  • Signal Analysis

Engineering course elements, focused on therapy
  • Cell Biology
  • Biomaterials
  • Biomechanics

These course elements define the basic level of competence of students. With these courses the student can follow every specialisation, offered in the third semester. When a student already followed a course element in the Bachelor’s training, (s)he will choose an elective course element, offered by the university.



A traineeship has to be followed in a hospital or industry. All universities of the consortium have an extensive network of contacts in hospitals and industries. You can think about a traineeship at one of the following companies:

Moreover we will use the extensive Eucomed network of European medical technology industries.  And we will use the EEN-network of mainly SME-companies.
Each university organises traineeships for the students. You discuss the possibilities of the traineeship with the local coordinator.
