Progress in the field of health care nowadays requires the interaction of many disciplines, the focus of which is on medical engineers who are able to understand and implement the language of all those involved.
This aspect cannot be overestimated and represents one of the most important interdisciplinary qualification goals, which is supported by the interdisciplinary nature of the Master's programme in Medical Engineering.
In addition, the curriculum is oriented towards the following interdisciplinary qualification goals:
- developing and further developing solutions to medical engineering problems
- collect, evaluate and interpret relevant information and derive scientifically based judgements from it
- taking responsibility in a team, recognizing structures and roles, shaping leadership
- exchange of information and ideas with experts and laypersons
The professional qualification goals focus on the guided but to a large extent independent deepening of competences in the specialist areas:
- Modelling und Simulation
- Biotechnology and Robotics
- Pacing und Ablation
- Applied Neuroscience/NeuroScience
- Biosignal analysis and Electrophysiology
- Medical computing
The two already established focus areas "Cardio-Sciences" and "Neuro-Sciences" of the Bachelor's programme "Medical Technology" will be consistently continued.
By equipping a number of laboratories with the latest medical technology equipment, "Studying through Experimentation" provides an application-oriented, extraordinarily practical teaching concept.
The Peter Osypka Institute for Pacing and Ablation at Offenburg University of Applied Sciences plays an important role in this regard.
