KU Leuven's Advanced Master of Innovative Health Technology prepares students to design, develop and implement novel technologies in modern health care. These are technologies that better enable medical doctors, therapists, and other care providers to identify symptoms, perform diagnoses, carry out surgery, cure diseases, program therapy, and follow up on patients’ progress.
This advanced master’s program has a specific focus on the integration of technologies and methodologies into usable systems. Recent trends in wearable sensors, bioelectronics, AI, robotics, and healthcare apps are combined to inspire students to conceive and implement integrated solutions that can be tested and used by patients and health care professionals.
In this one-year programme, you are required to take six compulsory course units on engineering technology, entrepreneurship and additional topics relating to the human body. You will also learn to work in an interdisciplinary and international team in the Health Engineering Experience project. Finally, you will also complete a master’s thesis and internship.
