Biomedical Technology - Digital Biomedical and Health Sciences
The Study Program
This innovative and in Germany unique study program for health professions of the future imparts a broad knowledge from the fields of medicine, natural sciences, computer science as well as social and health sciences. It aims at a new occupational profile in the field of health care professions, in which academic specialists are trained interdisciplinarily with a focus on the challenges and opportunities of digitization. The course of studies makes it possible to focus on the natural, engineering or social sciences and thus offers a wide range of medical-related training opportunities. Prospective students should be communicative and open, as well as eager to learn and work in an interdisciplinary way. Approximately 60 percent of the course content uniform, regardless of the chosen focus and promote central knowledge and skills in the healthcare system. As the studies continue, the joint teaching content decreases and specialization in the direction of the selected focus increases.
Major Focal Points
The specialization in "Biomedical Technology" provides basic scientific knowledge and qualifications in the field of biomedicine. The strongly application-oriented contents of the biomedical fields represented in this study program are combined in a unique way with the acquisition of competences in medical computer science and digital image processing. Students are enabled to develop and apply modern biomedical technologies, especially in the fields of genetic engineering, enzyme technology, cell culture technology, bioanalytics and biotechnology.
Graduates are qualified for positions in the field of biomedical research and development. At home and abroad, there is a great demand for biotechnologists with a biomedical/bioinformatics background. This results in a variety of career perspectives at various research institutes and research-related institutions. Possible occupational fields are in the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry, industrial biotechnology, the food industry, laboratory diagnostics, hospitals, public authorities, etc.
The study program can only be studied in the study model with two core subjects. The first core subject is always Digital Biomedical and Health Sciences, the second core subject can be chosen - in this case the major is Biomedical Technology.
Admitted applicants select their major with binding acceptance at Hochschulstart.de and then register for both core subjects. A later change of focus is possible under certain conditions.
Subject to the adoption of the Fachprüfungsordnung, an application with Fachhochschulreife is permissible. International students please apply via STARTING, not via Hochschulstart.
Other Focal Points
In addition to Biomedical Technology, there are also Digital Public Health und Digital Medical Technology.
