Biomedical Engineering

Bachelor of Science

Medizintechnik, B.Sc.


The programme B.Sc. Biomedical Engineering is run in cooperation with the Medical Faculty of Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt. Lectures and courses are held both at Technical University of Darmstadt and at Goethe-Universitat.

Electrical Engineering and Information Technology forms 80 % of the programme; the remaining 20 % being of a medical content. By the end of the second semester, a minimum of 20 CP is required. Of these 20 CP, 14 must come from Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology,

The programme includes three compulsory practical courses:

One in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology; one in Biomedical Engineering; the third one is a medical practical course.

General note: With the Bachelor of Science degree, students acquire a first degree qualifying them for a profession. However, at the Technical University of Darmstadt the Master of Science is the standard degree. Therefore it is recommended that students complete a Master's programme.
