Study overview


In Biomedical Engineering, devices, systems and/or software are developed to support modern medicine. The Bachelor's programme in Biomedical Engineering was first offered in the winter semester 2009/10 and is the first independent course in (bio)medical engineering at universities of applied sciences in Bavaria. The course is interdisciplinary and practice-oriented: It covers the basics of natural and engineering sciences, diagnostic and therapeutic issues in medicine, but also some elements of business administration and important legal aspects. The educational goals are: knowledge and methodology of the engineering sciences, understanding of medical diagnostic and therapeutic issues, basic principles of medical working methods taking into account economic aspects, the interaction of technical systems with the human body and the safety aspects of medical technology.

Further Information

Graduates with a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering can choose to work in wide variety of fields

  • Research and Development
  • Planning and operation
  • Project planning, construction and manufacturing
  • Service provision, Sales and Marketing

for equipment and systems in the bio-medical sector

Career paths

Amongst potential employers are research institutions and companies from the medical technology industry. More than 250 companies with more than 20,000 employees in the medical field are located in the Nuremberg metropolitan region alone.
 
Owing to the continuing high demand for products and solutions in this field, Biomedical Engineering is predicted to grow rapidly, both in Germany and throughout Europe. This due to current demographic developments and health-care reforms in Europe which are placing high demands on equipment etc. and the introduction of higher medical standards, particularly in Asia.

Internships in Biomechanics

Some Internships take place at Ansbach Hospital or in medical technology companies. For example, part of the biomechanics internship is held at the world market leader for osteosynthesis products in Switzerland.  Here, whilst "screwing, drilling and sawing" bones, you will learn about various methods for fracture treatment in the context of a trauma workshop, attended by many surgeons during their training.

 

 

Further training events and study trips

In addition to the medical-technical advanced training events, which are held every semester at our university and at which company representatives present their products and technologies, we offer several study trips to medical technology companies in the region and beyond.  Every year we visit MEDICA, the world's largest medical technology trade fair in Düsseldorf with our third semester students.

"good supervision by professors", "good relationships between lecturers and students", "internship at Ansbach Hospital", "all the internships were really interesting and instructive"

Bernd Ö.

Master studies "Applied Research and Development" at the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences

"The special feature of the course is its great practical relevance. There is an exercise or a laboratory practical for almost every lecture, so you can immediately apply the theoretical knowledge you have learnt and extend it further. The highlight of the course is the practical internship at Ansbach Hospital."

Master studies "Applied Research and Development" at the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences

"The special feature of the course is its great practical relevance. So there is to almost every lecture an exercise or a laboratory internship, and you can immediately use the theoretical knowledge you have learned, and thus also further deepen. The highlight is the hospital internship at the Ansbach Hospital. There one learns in ten different the use of the respective diagnostic or therapy systems, and sees what requirements the equipment has to meet. to be able to deliver the best possible result for the patient. A further advantage of the study programme is the very personal Contact to professors and laboratory engineers. This ensures optimal individual support in the day-to-day study routine as well as in the laboratory internships. guaranteed. Due to the very broad and practice-oriented content of the course of studies, one is well prepared for everyday professional life as well as for the following Master's program very well prepared."
