Creating functional tissue models with 3D printing technologies: Biofabrication combines advanced fabrication techniques with biological systems to prepare designed tissue constructs.Tissue constructs can be applied for tissue engineering, as 3D in vitro biologic models or as medical therapeutic products.
Biofabrication is a truly multidisciplinary area of research. It requires an understanding of chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, robotics and computer science. In this respect, few researchers entering the biofabrication field have been trained in such a diverse range of subjects.

Students enrolled in the Biofabrication programme at Utrecht University will complete their coursework required for the degree in Utrecht at Utrecht University / UMC Utrecht, as well as a research project that fills the first year. A total of 60 EC including a research project will be undertaken in Australia in the second year, at either Queensland University of Technology or University of Wollongong. Both institutions have a strong reputation in the field of Biofabrication and are in the forefront of 3D printing with biomaterials. A European Union-subsidised mobility programme will financially support these overseas secondments.Tissue constructs can be applied for tissue engineering, as 3D in vitro biologic models or as medical therapeutic products.

1st year

Students enrolled in the Biofabrication programme at Utrecht University will complete their coursework required for the degree in Utrecht at Utrecht University / UMC Utrecht, as well as a research project that fills the first year.

characteristics

The structure of the master's programme offers the opportunity to design a tailor-made programme, by choosing elective courses and research projects that suit your background and interest, and instruct you in the areas in which you are less knowledgeable.

curriculum

You can create your own Master's programme of 120 EC, in liaison with the programme coordinator. Except for the obligatory introductory course, the components of the programme (see table below) can be followed in any order, taking into account the timing of the overseas research project.

objectives

Biofabrication plans to establish a culture of excellence and cooperation within the research programme. As the first cohort of Masters in Biofabrication, students completing this programme are expected to help shape the biofabrication and 3D printing industries and research landscape.
