Our BME programme is part of the EIT Health CEMACUBE (Common European Master’s Course in Biomedical Engineering) programme

Students in the CEMACUBE Master’s programme learn by doing as they develop and test new medical devices and work to bring their innovations to market. Certified with the prestigious EIT Label, this Master’s in Biomedical Engineering increases international mobility of students, who will study at two different universities. The course involves a total of six universities and combines innovative pedagogical methods with excellent scientific content.

The master programme has a duration of two years (120 credits), with students spending each year in a different country.

These six leading research and educational institutions in Europe collaborate to provide a top-quality education in all aspects of biomedical engineering. RWTH Aachen University, DE; Trinity College Dublin, IE;Ghent University together with Free University of Brussels, BE; University of Groningen, NL; Czech Technical University, CZ.

The CEMACUBE Master's in in Biomedical Engineering provides students with skills to realise a medical device that can solve a medical problem. Students work in co-creation with the stakeholders, including patients, medical professionals and members of the industry, to develop prototypes and test them in real-life. Their course work continues with the second part of the process, implementation and commercialisation, as they develop a business plan and prepare for CE certification and a patent application. This work can potentially lead to an application for support through the EIT Health headstart programme or even submission as an innovation project. The CEMACUBE programme is run in cooperation with many industrial partners, like the EIT Health members Philips, Medtronic and Siemens. Students have an advantage when it comes to making the transition from academia to industry. The course supports them in becoming the entrepreneurs of the future with a European view, experienced in multicultural and multi-disciplinary teamwork.
