The Biomedical Engineering bachelor’s degree program trains students to be experts in biomedical engineering. The program teaches technical know-how and medical knowledge. The interaction of these two fields has become an important part of modern medicine.
Accordingly, the contents of the degree program are concentrated in the fields of medicine and natural science/technology. Students are provided with a fundamental understanding of physical-chemical relationships, along with the ability to describe these with mathematical functions. General and organic chemistry are also part of the curriculum. These course contents enable the students to function as key partners for physicians and biologists.
Four emphases for specialization:
In addition to the broad basic knowledge students learn, starting in the fourth semester of the program they can choose from one of the following four emphases based on their interests and future career plans:
Medical Imaging and Data Engineering: medical image processing, healthcare information systems, telemedicine
Medical & Hospital Engineering: Development of medical devices and their use in hospital
Rehabilitation Engineering: Rehabilitation technology and prosthetics, measurement technology and analysis
Cell- & Tissue Engineering: Collaboration in medical or biotechnical laboratories, including in the highly topical scientific fields of artificial tissue development
