Biomedical Engineering

Department

Major Fields of study

  • Biomedical Device Technology
  • Biomedical Instrumentation
  • Biomedical Signal Processing
  • Biomedical Computation
  • Medicine and Technology

Course content and objectives

Biomedical engineering supports biologists and medical professionals with technical solutions. These systems are complex, as are the subject areas: Systems Analysis, Modelling and Simulation, Medical Instrumentation, Biosensor Development, Signal Processing, Image processing, Rehabilitation Technology and Prosthetics, Medical Assistance Systems, Clinical Engineering and Biotechnology. Good conditions for crisis-proof jobs: a solid knowledge of the fundamentals in Medicine, Engineering and Medical Technology, more specifically in Anatomy and Physiology, Mechanics, Electronics, Computer and Programming Technology. Graduates ‘interpret’ between medical professionals and technicians and they are familiar with key regulations and laws. A unique pool of research equipment, close links to partners in the USA and excellent company contacts offer the ideal opportunities for development, both professionally and scientifically.

Requirements

  • academic degree in engineering or excellent grades in science or medicine
  • English B2 approval (TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge Language Examination etc.)

Career Opportunities

Biomedical engineering supports physicists and even biologists with technical solutions. The developed biomedical systems are as complex as the human subject.  Biomedical engineers act often as interpreters between physicians and technicians. Their familiarity with medical technology regulations and laws enables them to work in governmental agencies.

A unique pool of research equipment, close links to partners in the USA and the German health industry offer great opportunities for development, both professionally and scientifically. In general is biomedical engineering a crisis-proof job.
