The faculty of Engineering Sciences is organizing 10 different master’s degrees.

For three of these masters, ETRO is responsible for the entire master’s program, including the evaluation of the applicants, the management of the program and the teaching of a large part of the actual courses.

Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering: Applied Computer Science 

Do you already have an academic Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Engineering or Applied Sciences and do you want to pursue your career in the field of Computer Science and Data Science? Then the Master’s in Applied Computer Sciences is the programme you’re looking for! It is organised to accommodate your scientific background and future-oriented academic interests – developing the necessary Computer Science and Data Science skills by complementing your primary field of expertise. Above all that, we offer a wide variety of highly specialised elective courses.

Are you an engineering student interested in medical technology and life sciences? Are you intrigued by the boundaries of what’s possible when different areas of science intersect? Do you want to use your engineering knowledge to improve healthcare?

Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering 

A Biomedical Engineer is trained to understand body functions and to find solutions between technology and problems in the medical field. Prostheses from biologically inert materials that can replace knees, hips or shoulders. Imaging techniques that can track tumour growth and be used for radiation therapy. Electrocardiography systems that can track heart function and defibrillators that can intervene when the heart fails. All biomedical engineered solutions to common health problems. 

But it doesn’t stop there. Medical knowledge changes and technologies need to adapt. With an ever growing amount of people, biomedical technologies need to become even more efficient. Taking into consideration ethical and economical aspects at the same time. How will the hospital of the future look like? Which place will technology take in hte future of health care? How can biomedical engineering help in prevention of illnesses? As a biomedical engineer you step into a world that is rapidly evolving.

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering 

Electronics and information technology spans a broad range of topics related to omni-present systems and devices: smartphones, laptops, robots, games, cars, medical imagers, solar farms, the ‘Internet of Things’, and so on. At VUB you can become an expert in this field, ensuring a career in an ever-evolving aspect of society. The programme combines a rigorous scientific and technical education with the development of practical skills. It encourages independence, creativity and inventiveness, and it shapes competent engineers who can contribute to society on many – if not all – levels.

This programme is part of Bruface, which means it is organised jointly with Université Libre de Bruxelles. This allows students to use the adjacent infrastructures of both institutions, as well as giving them the opportunity to study in a multicultural context. Study in Brussels, the beating heart of Europe, and help build the future.
