MSc in Medical Technology

Progress in medicine and healthcare is closely linked to new developments in technology.

A striking example of this is the development of imaging technologies such as ultrasound, computed tomography (Nobel Prize in 1979, Cormack and Hounsfield), and magnetic resonance imaging (Nobel Prize in 2003, Lauterbur and Mansfield). Our MSc programme in Medical Technology is aimed at candidates with a background in natural sciences and technology who want to further their specialisation in technology towards applications in medicine.

Medical technology is one of the six strategic areas of inter-disciplinary research at NTNU. The Faculty of Medicine (DMF), the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology (NT), and the Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics, and Electrical Engineering (IME) are the main contributors to this activity. Strong partners in this research effort, all localised within walking distance of each other in Trondheim, are:

St.Olav's Hospital, the University Clinic
SINTEF, with its strong effort in health-related research

The programme is based on the two last years of well-established five-year master degree programmes for ordinary Norwegian students at NTNU. Specialisations are offered in fields of medical technology where NTNU has significant research activity and a long track record of training university-level technologists for the health service sector as well as for industry and research in medical technology.

The four specialisations in medical technology are as follows:
