Biomedical Engineering is technology for life. It takes directly effect for the good of man. Its purpose is the exploration and development of technology-oriented methods and systems for the early detection, diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation of diseases. Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary scientific field at the interface between medicine and technology with exceptional high dynamics of development. Recent studies assign it a place among the top ten state-of-the-art technologies of the 21st century.

The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering as a consecutive research-oriented university course is based on the Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering or other engineering degrees and qualifies for a career in the medical engineering industry, hospitals or public authorities.

The aim of the research-oriented master program Biomedical Engineering is the education of graduates with established basic engineering knowledge, outstanding methodological competence, a strong understanding of current medical questions and practically relevant medical knowledge.

The master program Biomedical Engineering provides the foundation for a later PhD. In the course of the double master program with the University of Technology of Malaysia (UTM), students can earn a double degree.
