BMD or BME ?

TU Delft offers two educational programmes at the department BMech; the BioMechanical Design (BMD) track, as part of the Master’s Programme in Mechanical Engineering, and the Master’s Programme in Biomedical Engineering (BME).

The Biomechanical Design(BMD) track, as described here, focuses on mechanics, control engineering, and the design of mechanisms. It is a master in mechanical engineering whit the focus on Biomechanical.

The Master’s Programme in BioMedical Engineering (BME) focuses on more clinically oriented courses geared toward design and/or research work in the medical industry.


Successful BME students are awarded an MSc degree in BioMedical Engineering, with their chosen specialisation listed on the certificate. BMD graduates receive an MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering, on which the track (BioMechanical Design) is also listed.
