Advanced scans and custom-made 3D-printed artificial organs - it is impossible to imagine the healthcare sector without medical technology. However, these innovative treatment methods call for a new type of medical professional. Someone with both medical and technical knowledge, who can form a link between technology and the patient. In this programme, you learn about medicine as well as medical technology.
Life Science & Technology
Can you alter a virus in such a way that it works like a medicine? What do penicillin, beer, and bio-degradable plastic have in common? How can you change bacteriaso that they will purify really everything in water? This is what you learn at Life Science & Technology (LST) in the joint TU Delft and Leiden University programme.
Molecular Science & Technology
Your food, your clothes, your beauty cream, your mobile phone and the energy that is needed for your home and for your transport - your everyday life is packed with chemistry. Do you want to learn all about the fundamental, industrial, and societal aspects of chemistry? You can do so on the Molecular Science & Technology (MST) programme offered by TU Delft and Leiden University, the only programme of its kind in the Netherlands.
Nanobiology uses the language of mathematics in the context of physics in order to examine the complexity of biology. A unique feature of the programme is that the strong fundamental background in mathematics, physics and modern biology is taught from the very beginning. The programme provides a thorough grounding in physics and mathematics and focuses on the biomedical and nanosciences.
