O que eu aprenderei?

The MSc programme in Advanced Materials and Healthcare Engineering focuses on design and fabrication of advanced materials for applications within the healthcare sector.

The study programme of Advanced Materials and Healthcare Engineering has the focus on design and fabrication of advanced materials for applications in the healthcare sector, especially materials for drug delivery, diagnostics, and healthcare products. Such advanced materials often consist of a material with a primary function (like carrying a drug or sensing a compound), which is decorated with specific bio-molecules for increased functionality.

The healthcare sector is central for supporting a high quality of life of the individual. The healthcare sector has however a large demand on improvements in diagnostics and treatment at a cost that is sustainable for society. The study programme aims to create candidates with high theoretical and practical competences to create products for these areas.

DTU has a growing and strong activity in research in materials for drug delivery, diagnostics, and healthcare products. Examples of competencies include advanced nano particles decorated with molecules or structures for homing to the right tissue and passage over barriers, engineered immune system responses, advanced in vitro models for replacing animal in drug testing, human and animal testing of advanced materials, and highly sensitive sensor systems for distributed molecular diagnostics. The students will be part of this growing field of research at DTU.

Study programme focus

The study programme will give candidates competencies to work in the healthcare engineering field. The programme focuses are on

  • the design of materials with specific functions for products used in the healthcare sector
  • analysis of, and finding solution to, real world industrial medical needs and products
  • methods of evaluating impact and function of advanced materials on cells, tissue, and humans
  • choosing instrumentation and analytical techniques for characterizing medical and medico-technical products
  • methods for product validation including usage of statistics and experimental design


Beyond the mandatory courses establishing the core profile of the study programme, students can choose to pursue one of three specializations within the study programme. The chosen specialization will be stated on the diploma. Each specialization includes a number of courses from which the student can choose a subset to match their particular interests. The three study lines are

  • Drug delivery systems engineering
  • Healthcare materials engineering
  • Diagnostic technology engineering


Because the education has a focus on product development, candidates will be very attractive for the healthcare and medical industry sector. This sector is one of the largest and fastest growing sectors in Denmark. The profile of the candidate will suit any international company with the focus of healthcare engineering.
