The course is intended for students with an educational background in electrical engineering, electronics, mechatronics, mechanical engineering, applied physics, material science or similar.
Overall learning objectives
The main objective is to learn the principles and applications of various medical device types and imaging techniques. This includes the design, modelling, fabrication and characterization of microfluidic chips, the development of optical analysis systems, as well as different imaging techniques with applications within the medical field.
Learning objectives - Knowledge
The students should have
-An understanding of the basic physics of fluids
-An understanding how to run a simulation and apply results in practice
-A comprehension of the fundamentals of microfluidic sensing
-An understanding of fabrication process steps for microfluidic systems
-An understanding of proper microfluidic chip layout and functions
-An understanding basics of 3D scanning and 3D model metrology
-An understanding of the most common optical and non-optical imaging techniques for medical applications
-An understanding of spectroscopy techniques and instrumentation and awareness of the challenges in optical analysis of biological tissue
-An understanding the principles of magnetic particle imaging
-An understanding the realistic aspect of working in a team to fulfil a common goal.
Learning objectives - Skills
The students should have the
-Ability to design and manufacture microfluidic chips
-Ability to analyse and interpret simulation output
-Ability to setup and test microfluidic systems
-Ability to select a suitable imaging technique for a given application

Student Identification Card - Date of birth
Enrollment is limited to 20 students. If more applicants than places, applicants who meet the mandatory requirements are prioritised according to the below selection criteria:
- Undergraduate and graduate students from partner universities (exchange); international undergraduate and graduate guest students (fee-paying); undergraduate and graduate students from other Danish universities.
- Ph.D students from partner universities and other international Ph.D. students; other applicants.
Students are prioritized on a first come, first served basis, i.e. according to the time we receive your complete application.
In case a course is filled up, we try to offer you an alternative course from your list of priorities. All final decisions about admission will be sent out continually.
