Graduates of the master's programme at the Vienna University of Technology will have sufficient basic knowledge in all sub-areas of technology which are indispensable for the future occupational field. Knowledge about the structure of biomedical engineering and of the connexions between its subdisciplines and the theoretical basics and models on which they are based are guaranteed in the degree programme. The aim is to thoroughly analyse biomedical problems and to develop appropriate suggestions for their resolution and to check the reliability of data collected in experimental research and numerical modelling. Fields of occupation available to graduates are basic and applied research, development of new technical solutions in biology and medicine or in the field of biology/medicine/engineering. Students have to choose a specialisation from the fields of biomaterials & biomechanics, biomedical instrumentation & signals, mathematical & computational biology or medical physics & imaging. The medium of instruction is mostly English.
The degree programme in Biomedical Engineering is to enable graduates to work at the interface between technology, medicine and biology. This results in a broad spectrum of occupations in healthcare engineering, medical research and hospital technology.
The degree examination, which concludes the programme, will be taken before a committee. It is an overview examination, focusing more on connexions than on details. Moreover, a thesis must be presented, which consists of a scientific paper with integrated project management and related documentation. It can be written in English or, by agreement with the supervisor and the person in charge of the law regulating university studies, also in another foreign language.
