Here you can find information on the organization of the Care & Cure track, one of the three tracks of the master Electrical Engineering, and on how to obtain your certificate for one of the special (sub)tracks within Care & Cure. In addition, more information can be found on this webpage.
Electrical Engineering is about many things that are essential parts of people’s lives. Health care is an application area of electrical engineering which has seen rapid development over the last decade. The purpose of the Care & Cure track is to teach students to work independently on complex healthcare-related research and design projects with the ability to rethink existing concepts and develop new ones. In the final phase of the program, students will be able to present the results of their work to an international community.
Students of the master track C&C must follow three core courses in their 1st year. More information about the core courses can be found here.
Students of the master track C&C choose two specialization electives from one of the research groups belonging to the C&C master track: EM, IC, or SPS. More information about the specialization electives can be found here.
Students of the master track C&C choose two additional specialization electives from the remaining two research groups belonging to the C&C master track. Choose either one specialization path course from each research group, or choose two specialization path courses from one research group. More information about the specialization electives can be found here.
Students of the master track C&C choose 20 EC of free elective courses. More information about free elective courses can be found here. See below for the special requirements for the free electives if you want to obtain a Care & cure sub-track certificate
Students of the master track C&C follow two professional development courses, worth 5 EC in total. For more information on professional development please visit this webpage.
Students of the master track C&C do an internship of 15 EC. For more information on the internship please visit this webpage.
Students of the master track C&C do a graduation project of 45 EC in the field of Care & Cure. For more information on the graduation project please visit this webpage.
Care & Cure sub-track:
Within the Care and Cure track, there are four sub-tracks: Neuro engineering, Oncology, Cardiology, and Perinatology (see below). In order to qualify for a certificate in one of the four sub-tracks, you need to meet the abovementioned criteria and choose three study components (within your free elective courses) from a Care & Cure sub-track. The study components for each track can be found here. Please note that bachelor courses completed in the bachelor also count towards the sub-track certificate.
