Medical Imaging, M.Sc. in Netherlands 2019

Utrecht University

Study in:Netherlands
Deadline: 1 Apr 2019


The program is offered in close collaboration between the imaging division of the UMC Utrecht and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Two leading organizations at the forefront of health care and technology. This collaboration tops a solid technological basis with strong links to research performed in a clinical setting.

Are you a student with a clear interest in health care technology, a ‘beta-mindset’, a curiosity towards the natural sciences and medical imaging, and ambition in research? Do you have a background in natural or physical sciences, e.g. physics, mathematics, computer science or more applied technical sciences like biomedical engineering? Then the Medical Imaging Master’s program offered by Utrecht University might just be a perfect fit.


Medical Imaging prepares for a career in research, either at our own PhD programme Medical Imaging or at other institutes in the Netherlands or abroad. Alternatively, students leaving after obtaining their MSc degree will profit from a solid education in imaging physics and image analysis for a career in industry.

If you choose to pursue an academic career, a logical step will be to start a PhD project after you obtain your Master’s degree. Your research projects during Medical Imaging will prepare you for PhD positions in the field of imaging physics and image analysis. After obtaining a PhD degree, you can choose to continue in academia or to continue your career in the clinic or industry. Continuing in academia consists of doing post-doc work and becoming an assistant, associate or full professor.


Accredited by the NVAO – Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders.
