Programme

The focus of this programme lies on designing and producing medical devices either for diagnosis or treatment. You will learn to design and develop applications that will literally come in contact with people. These relate to surgical equipment, biomedical instrumentation and orthopaedic devices.

The Biomedical Engineering programme consists of courses and an applied project. The courses are assessed by theory tests and practical workshops. You will work in a project group on the realisation of a biomedical device. Assignments will be provided by the Health Care industry or Medical Centres.

NB: The programme is offered in Assen, a  town 30 km south of Groningen. It is possible to find accommodation in Assen, but not that many exchange students live there. If you want to be part of an international student community and make use of the many services / activities offered to students in Groningen, you could consider to live in Groningen and commute between Groningen and Assen (20 minutes by train). In that case you will have to take into account travel costs: a return ticket Groningen – Assen by train costs app. € 12 / day.


 

Testimonial 

I chose my exchange program because The Netherlands are world leading when it comes to medical technology and Healthcare. There is a lot of knowledge I can bring back with me which would support me in writing my thesis and succeeding in my future work. The program was interesting, educational and fun. We got to choose a project from multiple different companies, and we had to realize it. It was hard but also very fun, I got very close with my group participants. I think if it wasn't for the project, I would never have gotten that close with them. I loved the "principles of biological assays"-course. It was everything I had hoped it would be, and the lecturer had interactive classes which made the learning experience fun. Living in Groningen was a dream, I would never have expected to achieve so much while still being prepared for my exams. Groningen has a farmers market three times a week, there are multiple viewpoints around and you bike literally everywhere. There is so much stuff to do, not just in Groningen but everywhere around The Netherlands. My stay in Groningen and the people I met here will follow me for the rest of my life.
