This degree course provides you with the skills and knowledge you need to plan and carry out design studies and development projects for medical technology products, instruments and systems. This includes knowing the regulatory requirements for the approval process for medical devices. The course enables you to recognise and analyse multidisciplinary problems and to develop engineering solutions on your own.
Bachelor of Science in electrical and information technology, computer science, microtechnology and medical technology, medical informatics or a comparable bachelor’s degree. An assessment of candidates’ qualifications is part of the admission process at each university of applied sciences.
The focus of the master’s degree programme is on specialising in greater depth; two-thirds of the programme is devoted to this and is completed within a research unit of a university of applied sciences. Within the scope of this specialisation, you will write two project theses and the master’s thesis.
One-third of your degree programme is reserved for theory, which is taught in modules. These theory modules are subdivided into three areas:
- Technical Scientific Modules | TSM
- Fundamental Theoretical Principles | FTP
- Context Modules | CM
Your degree programme is planned with the support of your advisor. This study advisor will also advise you on the choice of theory modules and specialisation.
