Master's Degree Programme: Biomedical Engineering

The need to find new solutions for safe, efficient, and cost-effective health care is steadily growing. Thanks to rapid developments in technical options, medical technicians – who have received their training in the master's degree programme Biomedical Engineering at TU Graz – can develop better diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, technically implement them, and make them available both efficiently and economically.

4 semesters
120 credit points
Master of Science (MSc)

You choose one of the five technical catalogues of electives as your major subject (major). As a minor subject (minor), you can choose another technical or the non-technical catalogue of electives:

Biomechanics: You will learn how to analyse phenomena of biomaterials on the nano, micro, or macro level experimentally, theoretically, and numerically.

Biomedical Instrumentation and Sensors: You will gain comprehensive skills that enable you to understand the biophysical and chemical mechanisms of sensors and learn the basics of the hardware required for signal processing. You can use this knowledge to develop measurement, analysis, and diagnostic systems.

Biomedical Imaging and Sensing: You will become familiar with basic principles as well as the devices and methods used for biomedical information acquisition, processing, analysis, and visualisation. Biomedical imaging and sensing is an essential part of the diagnostic and therapeutic interaction and is a prerequisite for providing individualized medical care.

Computational Neuroscience: You will gain insights into the fields of biosignal processing, and primarily learn more about brain signals, machine learning methods, computer science, and neuroscience. For example, you will investigate central nervous system processes using computational methods and develop brain-computer interfaces.

Health Care Engineering: You will learn to design and build new biomedical sensors, systems, and devices and to identify, survey, and evaluate regulatory and safety aspects and risks. In addition, you can deepen your knowledge in the field of computer-aided and experimental electrophysiology.

Business, Law and Management: You will learn more about essential management functions, such as legal and economic aspects of business management and business sociology.

Coming soon: Bioinformatics & Computational Medicine: Students who choose this specialisation have an opportunity to obtain comprehensive technical and biomedical knowledge about biomedical technologies, health informatics, and bioinformatics solutions and technologies such as individualised medications for patients using Big Data technologies.
