Students receive comprehensive knowledge in technical and medical fields. In addition, they specialize in elective modules on the subjects of Data Science, Mobile Systems Development or Internet of Things. Medical technology can also be studied on a part-time basis and relies on personal support and an "open door policy". Supportive courses are also offered before and during the course of study to ensure optimal success.
What students should bring to their studies:
- A fundamental interest and enjoyment in scientific and technical subjects.
- A creative personality who enjoys innovative developments.
- Logical thinking skills combined with a good command of English.
- Curiosity and the ability to work independently.
Concrete previous knowledge is not necessary for the bachelor's degree in medical technology. Therefore, students from all types of schools can start this study program after the Matura if they bring the appropriate interest and willingness to perform. In order to facilitate the start of studies, the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences offers intensive courses in mathematics, computer science and physics. Missing university entrance qualifications can be compensated by relevant professional qualifications and attendance of the pre-study course.
The focus of the course is on the technological development of treatment processes and diagnostic methods. On the one hand, you will acquire relevant basic knowledge in computer science and mathematics, on the other hand, you will successively focus on medical technology topics
such as anatomy, physiology and imaging techniques. The contents of the course cover the entire medical technology processing chain from image and signal generation, acquisition and processing to the visualization of these data (e.g. ultrasound, CT,
thermography). Starting in the third semester, the topics Data Science, Mobile Systems Development or Internet of Things are available in an elective module. In addition to the work placement, the focus will be on Business English and project management.
