CEMACUBE - International MSc in Biomedical Engineering

General info

Five leading research and educational institutions in Europe collaborate to offer a joint master program in Biomedical Engineering (CEMACUBE), providing a top-quality education in all aspects of biomedical engineering. The master program has a duration of two years (120 credits), with students spending each year in a different country. 

Students who study part of their curriculum in Belgium are enrolled at Ghent University in the International MSc in Biomedical Engineering. Their curriculum is largely similar to our "regular" MSc in Biomedical Engineering in the first year, but differs somewhat in the second master year. When studying the second year in Belgium, students can opt for a specialization track of 30 credits in the domain of Radiation Physics and Medical Imaging or Computational Methods for Medical Applications combined with a master thesis accounting for 30 credits.
