You gain specialised knowledge in the following compulsory subject areas:
Fundamentals of the Engineering Sciences: You gain knowledge in the areas of electrical engineering, mechanics and signal processing and learn how to solve simple technical problems that you encounter in biomechanics, health care engineering, or medical technology.
Fundamentals of the Natural Sciences: In order to be able to create models and simulations successfully, you will learn basic scientific principles such as those applied in mathematics, physics, and chemistry.
Fundamentals of Medicine and Biology: You learn more about anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry and receive information that prepares you to discuss medical content with medical professionals.
Fundamentals of Biomedicine: You learn technical procedures used for diagnostics and therapy and learn more, for example, about how a heart-lung machine works. In addition, you will deepen your knowledge in materials science and safety technology.
Fundamentals of Computer Science: You will become familiar with the fundamentals of software development and computer science and work, e.g. with MATLAB and Python.
Soft Skills, Human Sciences, and Motivation: Among other things, you will learn about project management, how to write technical reports, and acquire more knowledge in the field of bioethics.
In an elective subject, you will receive an initial in-depth introduction to specialisations available in the Master's Degree Programme Biomedical Engineering. These specialisations are: Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Instrumentation and Sensors, Health Care Engineering, Biomedical Imaging and Sensing, Computational Neuroscience and Bioinformatics & Computational Medicine.
