Master´s Study Contents

What is it about?

As a graduate of the Master degree programme Medical Engineering you are able to solve problems and issues of the Medical Engineering field by applying comprehensive methodologies and state-of-the-art knowledge of the engineering sciences. Based upon an intensive understanding of Mathematics, Algorithms and Electrical Engineering skills acquired in the Bachelor studies, the Master´s programme aims for an interdisciplinary applicability.

In the first semester you must choose one of three branches of study:

  • Medical Image and Data Processing (focus on Computer Sciences) – taught in English, only English skills required
  • Medical Electronics (focus on Electrical Engineering) – taught in German only, advanced German skills required
  • Medical Production Technology, Device Engineering and Prosthetics (focus on Mechanical Engineering/Material Sciences) – taught in German only, advanced German skills required

For information about the German-taught branches please refer to our German website.

In each branch of study the students will learn to develop, conduct, critically asses and adequately present analyses and implementation strategies for individual tasks.

During your studies you will experience medical procedures and anatomical and physiological correlations directly in the clinical work atmosphere. You will also have the possibility to render further qualifications relevant to the Medical Engineering field in areas like health economics, medical ethics and medical device law.

Teaching a vast knowledge of different disciplines of the engineering sciences prepare our students for the complex interdisciplinary issues and tasks of the Medical Engineering business. Our students furthermore learn how to independently gain knowledge of a highly specialized field, develop problem-solving expertise and manage projects through hands-on work in the form of laboratory training, seminars and research laboratories in which the theoretical knowledge is implemented.
