According to the Federal Statistical Office, 294 billion Euro were spent on health in Germany in 2011. 21.4 billion Euro in sales were generated by the Medical Engineering Division. In Baden-Württemberg alone there are around 700 companies (as of April 2014) that can be directly allocated to the medical engineering sector.
Therefore can be no doubt that this degree programme is extremely attractive, especially in Baden-Württemberg.
The Master's programme in Medical Engineering trains highly qualified graduates who are able to meet the constantly growing needs of this broad medical engineering job market.
The technical content offered represents innovative medical engineering areas that could form the basis for product development and industrial value creation in the near future.
The non-technical skills (soft skills) imparted, in particular the ability to independently analyse complex contexts and the independent, creative implementation of technical solutions are good prerequisites for a possible academic career, but also open up career opportunities for managers in the product, project and higher management of companies.
In principle, this programme qualifies students to work in engineering sciences in industry and at research institutions, enables further qualification within the scope of a doctorate and opens up access to higher service with public employers.
The Master's programme in Medical Engineering enables graduates to take on leading positions in the medical engineering industry and to carry out entrepreneurial planning activities independently.
