Contents

The Faculty of Medicine leads the co-operation between the Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Sciences and Natural Sciences, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, who have designed a curriculum especially for this programme. The design of the programme takes full advantage of the environment offered at RWTH as one of the leading universities of technology in Europe.

The Master's programme study courses have a modular design and are divided into basic modules, three specialised modules, general compulsory courses and optional courses. During the first semester, basic modules in natural sciences, engineering and medicine create a common platform for the later semesters. Students attend a combination of basic courses depending on previous qualifications.

The second and third semesters consist of specialised modules such as tissue engineering, medical imaging/guided therapy and artificial organs/devices. The topics covered in detail are main areas of research and development at RWTH. The Master's thesis typically occupies the final six months of the programme.

During the time of study students must also perform an 8-week internship in a biomedical engineering related organisation (company, university or research institute).

The curriculum and course contents are structured according to the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System).
