Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering are two partially overlapping but distinct fields of study and work.
Bioengineering is a science-based discipline focused on biology and creates a connection between biology and engineering. It sets out to apply the scientific knowledge to relevant problems in an effective and efficient way. Biomimetic is the sub-discipline of Bioengineering that deals with the transfer of biological models and systems to the design of machines and materials. Systems Biology is another sub-discipline that utilizes the engineering knowledge to discover structures, functions and operation methods of biological systems.
Biomedical Engineering is concerned with applying the biological science to medical innovation and bridges the gap between engineering and medicine with the purpose of improving the healthcare area. Amazing progress and development has been made in the fields of diagnosis and therapy thanks to the newly established discipline of Biomedical Engineering through the production of advanced medical equipment and devices that incorporate the biological dimension. Bio prostheses, micro implants, imaging machinery like the MRI and tissue growth are some of the notable achievements of this study field. Bringing engineering to a new level, Biomedical Engineering offers unlimited research, development and growth perspectives.
This master programme is fully lectured in English and its main goal is to provide technological training with a rather strong professional approach. This will allow the intervention in areas which link the primary and secondary sectors, providing new accomplishments namely in the field of microbial technology and plant biotechnology.

A young and rapidly growing discipline, biomedical engineering applies the methods and techniques of the engineer to the sciences of living organisms, in particular towards therapeutic ends. It concerns above all research and development, within a range of domains such as bioinformatics, medical imaging, processing of images and physiological images, bioinstrumentation, biomechanics*, biomaterials systemic and synthetic biology.
This programme is designed to biomedical scientists wishing to improve their practical skills on biochemical and molecular technologies used in clinical context.
The accredited international master's program Process Engineering (MPE) is a binational cooperation between the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg (Germany) and the University of Olsztyn (Poland).
Der interdisziplinär ausgerichtete Masterstudiengang Biotechnologie/Bioingenieurwesen ist an der Schnittstelle zwischen Naturwissenschaft und Technik angesiedelt. Dieser Studiengang vermittelt neben einem vertieften Verständnis biologischer Prozesse und deren technischer Anwendungen ein breites Spektrum an ingenieurwissenschaftlichen Werkzeugen und Methoden, die es den Absolventinnen und Absolventen ermöglichen, eine große Bandbreite an Aufgaben erfolgreich zu bearbeiten. Diese können beispielsweise aus den Bereichen Bioverfahrenstechnik, Biomedizin oder Biopharmazie kommen.
This master provides a multidisciplinary approach to developmental biology, motivated by the growing significance of this discipline in the understanding of human diseases (congenital malformations, cancer, sterility) and the innovative prospects for their treatment (original cells, cloning, gene and cell therapy).
In this programme you will obtain in-depth knowledge about Life Science and Technology, which finds applications in innovative health care, in the pharmaceutical industry and in biotechnology.
Nanotechnology is all about designing, fabricating and controlling materials and components with dimensions on the nanoscale, i.e. from 1 to 100 nm.
The MPhil is a one-year research degree where students get the opportunity to study a specific research project. Biomolecular Sciences covers a broad interdisciplinary area of research including molecular biology, cell biology, bioinformatics, structural biology and the application of chemical & physical methods to biological systems. Bioinformatics applies computational, mathematical and statistical approaches to the study of biological systems.
