All the mandatory courses, except for the HL1007 basic course in Medical engineering, which is compulsory for some students, are on the second level, but some elective and conditionally elective courses may be on the first level.
The language of instruction for the programme is English. Students are allowed to take some elective and conditionally elective courses that are given in Swedish.
Innovation and entrepreneurship courses are included in the curriculum as individual stand-alone courses but the I&E content is also integrated into the content of some courses.
The programme is strongly multi-disciplinary and cover a broad range of topics from medical engineering, innovation and entrepreneurship.
The student might spend their third semester at one of the five EIT Health Partners universities, in order to gain additional I&E experience and to take courses that are not available at KTH.
