Description

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.
