Due to the close cooperation of the engineering sciences with the medical faculty, the students of the bachelor’s programme receive a basic medical education in the introductory subject areas, such as anatomy, medical terminology, physiology, biochemistry, etc. , which make up about one third of all basic courses of the programme. This direct insight into the medical teaching, research and possibly also working culture offers students a great opportunity to find their way competently in the medically shaped territories of medical technology, in order to be able to actively help shape these in the context of a future working environment.
In the Bachelor’s programme Medical Technology, students acquire knowledge, skills and methods that enable them to work scientifically, to critically classify scientific findings and to act responsibly, taking into account the changes and requirements of the professional world. In particular, the course imparts knowledge and skills that enable students to understand scientific methods in the highly interdisciplinary field of medical technology in context and to apply them to the analysis and solution of challenging problems. In addition to the typical engineering problems, this also includes the mechanisms and interactions at the numerous interfaces between technical systems and organic/biological structures.
