Welcome to the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics at the TU Ilmenau

The Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics (BMTI) is working in the field of research and development of technique-oriented methods and systems for early detection, diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation in medicine. The BMTI was certified according to the "System der Qualitätssicherung in der Ausbildung der Gütegemeinschaft der Medizintechnik (GGMT)" and is the first educational institution receiving the RAL seal of quality. The new bachelor and master degree programs "Biomedical Engineering" were introduced in the year 2005. Biomedical Engineering is technology for life. In cooperation with medical partners it directly affects the human health and develops new methods for detection and treatment of diseases and implements them in medical technologies.

The TU Ilmenau has a long and successful tradition in the field of biomedical engineering. Already in the year of 1953 the Institute of Electromedical and Radiological Engineering was established at the former “Hochschule für Elektrotechnik” (HfE), which was the first university institute in Europe that introduced an on-campus program of Biomedical Engineering.
