The Biomedical Engineering degree programme is a new collaborative degree programme involving TU Darmstadt and Goethe University Frankfurt. It is going to start in the winter semester 2018/19. Successful graduates will receive a joint degree from both universities. From the winter semester 2021/22 at the latest, M.Sc. Biomedical Engineering will be offered, so that the students of the B.Sc. Biomedical Engineering can transfer to an M.Sc. after a standard study period of three years and complete their studies with a Master's degree.
Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary subject inextricably connecting medicine and technology. The application of medical technology is often core to the success of prevention, diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation. Biomedical Engineering topics are extremely diverse, ranging from tissue engineering to x-ray devices, from surgical robots to point-of-care diagnostics, and from medical implants to Big Data and e-health. Current developments in digitisation in our private and professional lives are forcing the pace of innovation in Biomedical Engineering enormously.
