As a student in our MSc in Biomedical Engineering programme at Bern University of Applied Sciences, you will contribute to innovation in medtech and benefit from an excellent network.


Biomedical engineering is among the most promising research areas and economic sectors in the 21st century, demonstrating above-average growth around the world. Medical technology in Switzerland is a particularly well established industry sector that has reached very high standards.

Thanks to a partnership between the University of Bern and Bern University of Applied Sciences, the Master of Sciences in Biomedical Engineering programme is open to a wide range of interested students.

For the time being, graduates of Swiss universities of applied sciences with a background in a relevant scientific or engineering discipline (such as microtechnology, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, IT and others) will be admitted to the university-based MSc programme without prerequisites.


  • You will join a group of students from various academic and cultural backgrounds in your interdisciplinary studies.
  • Upon successfully completing the programme, you may move on to a doctorate. This grants graduates of universities of applied sciences access to academia.
  • Compulsory courses are held three days per week (with some exceptions), thus allowing you to study while you work.
