You will start with a two-day introduction to Problem-Based Learning. After this, we will set you up for success by giving you a broad foundation with compulsory courses.
After successfully completing all of the courses, you will then enter the project period, where you will work in a team with your fellow students, during which you will test and enlarge your skills by learning from each other. Often you will do your research with one of the research institutes at UM, like the Maastricht MultiModal Molecular Imaging Institute, which is the scientific hub of many of your teachers.
Following the project period, you will now have to tailor your programme. It is here where you will have to decide which specialisation to follow.
The specialisations offered are:
- Instrumentation Engineering
- Molecular Imaging Engineering
Entering the next two periods, based on your specialisation and interests, you will have to choose one of the two elective courses.
It's time to finish your first year with your second research project. You will continue to build upon the skills you've gained and collaborate with your fellow students, your different backgrounds and knowledge complimenting one another.
