The Biomedical Engineering master’s programme should enable graduates to be active at the interface between technology, medicine and biology, and to understand the language and content of both disciplines. The course promotes interdisciplinary technological expertise.
The four-semester master’s programme goes into the knowledge acquired in the Biomedical Engineering bachelor’s programme (six semesters) in more depth and offers opportunities to specialise in the fields of Health Care Engineering, Bioimaging & Bioinstrumentation, Bionformatics & Medical Informatics and Molecular Bioengineering (see course information folder). Graduates will be awarded the academic degree of “Diplom-Ingenieurin” or “Diplom-Ingenieur”, which is internationally equivalent to a “Master of Science” (“MSc”).
Working as a Biomedical Engineer
Graduates with a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering make fundamental contributions to ensure health-care provision of the future. This up-and-coming field is experiencing a time of global change, and job prospects are good. If you are flexible and mobile, you can expect a variety of exciting opportunities in the most differing fields.
The work as a Biomedical Engineer extends far beyond classical hospital activities. It ranges from quality management in health care to the development of e-health; from computer-science solutions to activities in the public administration at a provincial, federal or EU level. Furthermore, interesting perspectives are to be gained from founding a company offering high-tech products for medical research and development.
