Entry Requirements

  • If you have completed your vwo (pre-university education) with the N&T (Nature & Technology) profile, you are directly eligible for admission to all TU/e Bachelor’s programs.
  • Diplomas which are equivalent to the Dutch diploma,
  • An original Academic IELTS score of at least 6.5 on average, or;
  • TOEFL scores of at least 90 (Internet-based). Students can arrange for their TOEFL results to be sent to the TU/e directly by using the TU/e university code number 8615, or;
  •  University of Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE) or Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE), grades A-C.



Most courses you will follow together with students of the major Medical Sciences and Technology. You will follow courses like Cell & Tissue, Introduction course Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and you will enhance your knowledge in Bioinformatics. At the end of year one you can still switch between the major Biomedical Engineering and the major Medical Sciences and Technology.

Design Centred Learning
Simultaneous with the courses you are taking part in group projects, in which you are going to solve a biomedical problem. You will do this for example by combining knowledge you gained during courses with information from the library, internet, lab experiments and computer simulations. There will also be group projects in your second year.


While students in Medical Sciences and Technology are specializing in biomedical subjects like diagnose & intervention and immunology & infection, you will focus more on technological subjects like mechanics, physics and materials.

The last six months you are following electives and you are really going to work in one of the research groups, by doing your major project. This will prepare you for your Master's program.
