Study focus

The challenges that our bio-inspired engineering graduates will be equipped to face, will be as diverse as biomimetics itself. Potential occupational fields include, for example, applied research and development, technical biology, product development and construction, industry and product design, manufacturing engineering and automation technology, innovation management, and (business) consulting.

The bio-inspired engineering Master's program will enable talented and committed students to discover the riches of biomimetics and to use them to develop sustainable engineering solutions to benefit our society. The program ensures a transfer of knowledge from applied basic research to the creation of prototypes through the high proportion of practical exercises.

That includes:

  • 22% Biomimetics
  • 17% Engineering principles for biomimetics
  • 15% Biology for engineers
  • 15% Specialization/Master’s thesis
  • 13% Fablab & rapid prototyping
  • 8% Science & innovation
  • 6% 3D-Design & optimization
  • 4% Analytics
