Potential areas of employment

  • Research

In core medical and biomedical research, engineers help solve fundamental problems and develop medical technologies. They work closely with other scientists, especially doctors.

  • Development

Engineers develop and optimize medical devices, implants and technical aids used in the diagnosis and therapy of patients and the disabled. They also handle the medical approval for various markets.

  • Medical Engineering in Hospitals

In hospitals, tasks for engineers range from the operation of complex systems and advising of doctors, to assistance in hospital planning and the planning and execution of patient studies.

  • Product Management and Sales

As representatives of their company, engineers are the point of contact for doctors, pharmaceutical companies, technical nursing staff and administrative staff in hospitals. They are the link between the field sales force and the company's technical departments giving presentations and demonstrating medical devices, as well as making offers and managing sales negotiations.
