M.Sc. Bionics/Biomimetics

Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences | Kleve , Germany
The natural world as a source of engineering inspiration thats the core idea behind the fields bionics, a combination of the terms biology and technics, which means engineering in this context. In English, the approach of combining biology and engineering is often called biomimetics. The basic principle of biomimetics is learning from nature. The idea on bionics/biomimetics is to understand the principles and systems behind natures constructions and to transfer them to technical systems and devices.

The approach of combining biology and engineering is often also called biomimetics in English. The basic principle of biomimetics is learning from nature. The idea on bionics/biomimetics is to understand the principles behind nature´s constructions and to transfer them in to technical systems and devices.

One major application of biomimetics is the field of biomaterials. Spider silk, for example, is both light and flexible and three times stronger than steel. Such material properties are of interest for various technical fibers. In robotics animal models such as Geckos are used as inspiration for the development of climbing robots.

Career Paths

Experts in bionics/biomimetics work in a highly interdisciplinary field which requires expertise in both engineering and biology. Whats more, interest in potential uses for bio-inspired materials and machinery continues to grow in many sectors and industries, creating a growing demand for specialists in these fields.

Potential areas of employment for graduates are:

  • Industries and research institutions focusing on micro-/nanotechnology
  • Bio-materials industry
  • Energy technology
  • Bioengineering
  • Engineering offices
  • Research institutions
  • Service providers and experts specialising in biomimetics
