Our 2 year international MedTech Masters Degree programme offers a functional understanding and technical knowledge of the major areas within the fields of functional imaging and radiotherapy. Our course is the first of its kind in Europe.
Functional imaging and in particular radiotherapy are considered two of the most innovative and developing areas within technology and medicine. Individuals with a technical background who can act as interface between these specialist fields are indeed very rare. Our Masters Degree programme offers you the ability to serve as one of these much sought-after specialists working across these two unique though very much entwining disciplines.
Graduates will acquire an in-depth knowledge of both fundamentals and specific expertise within both functional imaging and radiotherapy.
Highly qualified and experienced staff will cover the complete spectrum of knowledge relevant to the modern workplace in this field. This ranges from the physical processes involved in image generation and biological interpretation to physical effects and biological consequences.
Both specific and methodical skills, inter- and multidisciplinary qualifications characterize this Masters Degree programme. Students will be trained to develop a more lateral form of thinking, a necessity in work of this kind. This enables graduates to recognize individual objectives more specifically in relation to one another and thus prove more effective in technical, medical, biological and economical environments.
Lectures in the fields of economics, radiation protection and personal development also make up the remainder of the study programme.

Preliminary Summer School.
To ensure a smooth entry into the course, a summer school is offered during the summer break before the beginning of the first semester. The specifics of the summer school will depend on previous knowledge and experience in each of the following disciplines: mathematics, physics, IT, anatomy, physiology and pathology. This allows all applicants to ensure the full range of ECTS points for all disciplines necessary for entry to the programme. The summer school is primarily eLearning and will conclude with workshop sessions over several days at the university in Wiener Neustadt.
Every year the "Industriemagazin" evaluates Business and Engineering Applied Science University Study Programmes throughout Austria by means of questionnaire amongst decision makers and human resource experts.
In 2012 The University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt was evaluated by 650 managing directors, executive boards and human resource managers in Austria and attained excellent results:
FIBAA, the international agency for quality assurance in higher education, awards a seal of quality to educational institutions and programmes for the promotion of quality and transparency in learning and science, in tertiary and quarternary areas in Austria and abroad.
