Definition of the field of studies

This programme combines new interdisciplinary fields in biomedical sciences, which aim at the replacement of defective parts in the human body. The possibility to construct functional human tissues such as skin, muscle or bone in the laboratory is one of the great future challenges in medicine.

Exams

In the third semester students have to do a work placement in the framework of the “Methods of Scientific Research” course. The work placement will be done at a research institute or a research department to gain practical experience for the master's thesis. As a rule this placement lasts five weeks.

Entrance examinations

Bachelor's and/or equivalent academic degree at a technological university of applied sciences or university of technology (corresponding to at least 180 ECTS credits) in biomedicine, medicine, natural sciences, engineering sciences or a degree in biomedical analytics (BMA). For admission a fully completed online application form, a written grading test (subject-specific) in English and a personal interview with the director of the programme (in English) are required.
