Bachelor's Degree Programme Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineers develop technical solutions for problems of prevention, diagnosis and therapy encountered in the fields of medicine, while working at the intersection of technology, medicine, (bio)physics, biology and (bio)chemistry. In the interdisciplinary bachelor’s programme Biomedical Engineering at TU Graz, you will learn the diverse fundamentals of medical technology.


  • You acquire fundamental knowledge in, for example, mathematics, statistics and physics.
  • You acquire fundamental knowledge in the field of the computer sciences and work, for example, with MATLAB and Python.
  • You learn the basics of engineering, for example, from the subject areas of electrical engineering, metrology and mechanics.
  • You acquire the basics of medicine and biology.
  • You deepen your biomedical knowledge, for example, in the subject areas of biophysics, biomechanics and medical device safety.
  • You analyze interdisciplinary problems.
  • You recognize economic, social and economic contexts.
  • You improve your ability to analyze problems during your projects and while conducting your bachelor thesis.
  • You present results effectively and learn what it takes to write scientific papers.

I study biomedical engineering because I learn technical things like programming and, at the same time, immerse myself in the world of medicine.

Many people don’t know what I do the first time I tell them what I study. But as soon as the terms hospital technology and medical devices are used, everything becomes clear. What I like most about Biomedical Engineering is the emphasis on the technical side with programming and electrical engineering. At the same time, I can also learn anatomy, biology and chemistry in detail.

Career Options

Graduates qualify to begin the master's programme Biomedical Engineering, but can also enter a profession after completing the Bachelor's Programme.


  • work with skilled specialists to solve interdisciplinary problems and apply their technical expertise,
  • work in research and development as well as in industry and the public sector to develop improved and more efficient diagnostic and therapeutic tools, and
  • translate diagnostic and therapeutic solutions into technical realities.
