Therefor students deepen fundamentals of engineering and science in essential areas of medical technologies and can choose 3 (out of 4) elective modules: Electronics, Biomechanics, Medical Device Software, Materials Technology. These are enhanced by courses considering Systems Engineering, Medicine and Clinical Trials and Regulatory Affairs.
Within the Project Work and Master's Thesis, students can apply their skills within companies, research institutes or hospitals to develop, produce or integrate modern medical devices or products. As part of the final examination, students have to present their conclusions underpinned by theoretical knowledge and their own rationale.
Graduates are qualified as engineers with the ability to develop medical devices and products within the regulatory framework of European markets and the ability to consider FDA regulations. Application areas are medical imaging systems, assisted medical robotics, pacemakers, bionic prostheses, artificial intelligence based support systems and many more.
Graduates of the Medical Engineering degree programme from University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria are prepared for national and international leadership functions in medical product development and placing them into markets as well as for a further scientific career, for example for doctoral studies.
Therefor, medical engineers are working - for example - in development and applied research, engineering production, in the fields of regulatory affairs, quality and product management.
They also serve as qualified advisors and as experts for technical sales and marketing. The health care system needs medical engineers for the acquisition, care and maintenance of medical products. Further employers are the certification authorities and research facilities.
