    Programme Description

    Dramatic changes can be expected in health care. Life expectancy is also increasing due to the higher quality of medical care. Accordingly, there will be great demands on future medical care and a highly efficient health care system which makes use of state-of-the-art technical equipment in prevention, diagnosis, and therapy.

    Biomedical engineering provides the necessary know-how, the required products and the latest solutions in information technology. This includes pace-makers and all other medical implants as well as magnetic resonance imaging or surgical "navigation aids" that make it possible to watch an operation on the monitor. However, biomedical engineering also works on the molecular level and deals with the "design" of molecules, among others. This means that biomedical engineers examine possible ways to use suitable molecules for the treatment of illnesses.

    Even though fundamental biological and medical knowledge is indispensable for the work of biomedical engineers, Biomedical Engineering is still a technical programme! Knowledge of Latin is not required. However, mathematics and physics are prerequisites just as is an interest in technical problems. And those who enjoy working in interdisciplinary subject areas and co-operating on an interdisciplinary level have the necessary prerequisites to be successful in the study programme.
