Medical Engineering

Bachelor of Science

Study medical engineering in Schwenningen

Practice-and patient focused, application-oriented, and international

The new study programme, "Medical Engineering - Clinical Technologies (MKT), which will be introduced on the Villingen-Schwenningen Campus in Winter Semester 2019/2020, has grown out of the original Medical Engineering (MEB) programme and its successful areas of specialization. The new programme offers a further area of specialization - sports medicine - while maintaining the core elements of the well-established Medical Engineering programme. The curriculum of the new programme can be found here: Medical Engineering - Clinical Technologies.

Key technologies such as minimal invasive techniques in surgery, cardiovascular perfusion, organ-support systems, imaging processes, computer-aided communication technology and app-based applications offer innovative fields of employment in medical engineering. Medical engineering is the technology of the future and one of the fastest-growing areas of engineering.

The Medical Engineering programme trains engineers to work at the interface between medicine, patient and technology. The interdisciplinary programme provides a broad fundamental training and innovative specializations with many electives. The "Biomedical Technologies" and the "Operating Theatre Engineer/Cardiovascular Perfusion“ specializations focus on either the development of innovative medical devices and procedures for monitoring, therapy and diagnosis, or on heart-lung machines, emergency medicine and organ-support systems with innovative future technologies. The Centre for Applied Simulation - CardioSim, which is integrated in the programme, makes intensive, workplace-oriented training possible.

During the course, a great deal of emphasis is put on early exposure to application-oriented, practice-relevant projects from hospitals and industry. Upon request, students can take the internationally recognized EBCP (European Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion) Certificate in the area of technical medicine (heart-lung machines and organ support systems) during their course. The Medical Engineering programme is one of the few accredited European training centres.
