Education at BiS

At BiS we like to translate our knowledge and expertise into interesting, state-of-the-art educational activities in order to share our passion for research and teach the new generation of scientists. BiS also sees ‘Learning-Teaching’ as a joint adventure between the lecturer and learner.

BiS is involved in Biomedical Engineering&Medical Engineering Sciences bachelors and masters programs at Eindhoven University where we teach and tutor both practical and theoretical courses mainly about applied cell biology in regenerative medicine and related fields. 

We also offer internship possibilities for both bachelor and master students. Please have a look below for more information!


Applied Cell BiologyBachelor of Medical Sciences and Technologies 

Applied Cell Biology course ran for the first time at Q2, 2019-2020. The course was designed from scratch to promote active learning in the classroom. The inspiration of Jan and Sultan to facilitate the higher cognitive skills to solve a real cell biological challange made the backbone of the course design. For this purpose blended learning, challenge based learning and research based learning are carefully implemented in the course. In addition, assesment for learning approaches were used including group projects and reports, peer review and peer grading and debating.


We are using ‘Blended Learning’ approach as a backbone for the learning-teaching activities.

In addition to promote higher cognitive skills we are mostly using kinesthetic and visual tools.

Biomedical Engineering&Medical Engineering Masters Track at TU/e

The master in Biomedical Sciences (BMS) focuses on state-of-the-art methodology and skills that enable researchers to unravel the molecular and cellular mechanisms in health and disease with the ultimate goal to restore health.

One of the nine specializations within the masters is "Regenerative Medicine":creating solutions to restore structure and function of permanently damaged tissues and organs by using a combination of science and technology. 

Tracks in the master’s program Biomedical Engineering:

  • Regenerative engineering,
  • Regenerative medicine and technology (with Utrecht University),
  • Biomechanics and mechanobiology,
  • Chemical biology, materials and nanomedicine,
  • Biomedical imaging and modelling,
  • Medical imaging (with Utrecht University).

Tracks in the master’s program Medical Engineering:

  • Biomechanics,
  • Medical imaging and modelling,
  • Medical imaging (with Utrecht University).

Topics focus on both the molecular biological (including stem cell biology and gene therapies) and technological (including tissue engineering and bio-fabrication technologies) aspects, and the combination thereof within a clinical context. 

What do we offer?

  • Highly interdisciplinary projects
  • Involvement in the ongoing projects of BiS
  • Learn new skills: 
    • Wet lab: Cell culture, PCR, Western blot, microscopy, and many more
    • Computational: image analysis (CellProfiler), gene expression analysis (ConsensusPathDB, Cytoscape, ArrayExpress, ConnectivityMap), VirtuallCell, R
    • Professional: writing skills, presentation skills, creative and critical thinking
  • A lot of fun!

When can you start?

Interested applicants are encouraged to apply and are welcome the whole year round but placement is dependent on availability of supervision.
