Our programme is intended for students who have a clear and specific interest in medical imaging, and ambition in research. You have a BSc in natural or exact sciences (physics, mathematics, computer science or more applied sciences, like biomedical engineering), with an interest in biomedical engineering/technology applied in a clinical setting or vice versa.
Months of entry
Exact science and cutting-edge technology in healthcare
The field of medical imaging is evolving rapidly, since medical diagnosis and treatment are increasingly supported by imaging procedures. We offer a technology-oriented research Master’s programme that prepares for a career in this strongly multidisciplinary field. The programme combines elements from physics, mathematics, computer science, biomedical engineering, biology, and clinical medicine allowing you to attain a high level of knowledge and skills in various areas of medical imaging, such as image acquisition physics, quantitative image analysis, computer-aided diagnosis, and image-guided interventions.
If you have a background in natural or physical sciences, e.g. physics, mathematics, computer science or more applied technical sciences like biomedical engineering, and an interest in technology applied in a clinical setting, then this Master’s programme could be the right choice for you! The programme is offered in close collaboration between the Imaging Division of the University Medical Center Utrecht and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). This collaboration tops a solid technological basis with strong links to research performed in a clinical setting. This allows you not only to learn about state-of-the-art medical imaging technology, but also to actually work with systems from an impressive range of imaging platforms available in the UMC Utrecht.
What you'll learn
As Medical Imaging will attract students with different backgrounds, a broad range of courses is offered to allow you to tailor your study programme to your specific needs and prior knowledge. In the elective part of the curriculum students can refine their knowledge and skills in more specialised or advanced topics of their liking. Some topics are taught in Utrecht and others in Eindhoven. The Medical Imaging programme provides you with the knowledge and skills in the fields of imaging physics and image analysis required for a career in the fascinating world of medical imaging research and technology development.
As a graduate you can pursue a career at universities, in research institutes, or in industry, in both theoretical and applied fields of medical imaging. We expect that many graduates will continue with a PhD project, either in Utrecht at our own PhD programme Medical Imaging or at another institute in the Netherlands or abroad. Having obtained a PhD degree, you can either continue in academia or switch to industry.
