The Master of Science in Medical Engineering at FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences is an interdisciplinary and internationally oriented (English-speaking) degree programme providing students with state-of-the-art scientific knowledge. 


Biomedical engineering is a multidisciplinary field in which the principles of engineering are applied to solving problems in biology and medicine. Quantitative, analytical, and integrative methods are applied from the molecular level to the entire organism. This broadens our understanding of basic biological processes and enables us to develop innovative approaches for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.

One of the main goals of the degree programme is to bring foreign students to Germany by offering an English language engineering programme in order to intensify international relations.

In some cases, students may be able to participate in exchange programmes with partner universities (IQN-Universities) and perform research or gain work experience in countries other than Germany.


The Master of Science in Medical Engineering degree programme at FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences, Jülich Campus prepares students to apply engineering concepts to scientific and practical problems in biology, medicine, and health care.
