The programme consists of 120 higher education credits which correspond to two years full time studies. The´programme is mainly on the second level.

All the compulsory courses apart from the HL1007 basic course in Medical engineering, which is compulsory for some students, are on the second level, but some elective courses may be on the first level.

The language of instruction for the programme is mainly English. All compulsory courses are in English, but some elective and conditionally elective courses may be given in Swedish. It will however be possible to achieve a full degree using only courses in English.

Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of the programme the students will follow one out of five specialisations:

  • Modern Physics

  • Mechanics

  • Electronics

  • Information Technology

  • Organisation and Management

Each specialisation contains compulsory and conditionally elective courses. The sum of those should correspond to at least 75 credits. All students should also do a 30 cr master’s degree project. The remaining credits are elective courses, but these courses should be relevant for the objectives of the programme.

 Students with a different bachelor degree than medical engineering may be eligible for the programme, but have to take two extra compulsory courses during the first semester.
