Medical Engineering

Research for the people

is the focus of our Medical Engineering programme. Right from the start, you will acquire medical expertise while studying the technical facets of natural sciences in the fields of physics, informatics, mathematics and electrical engineering.

This programme at the Lübeck campus thereby bridges the divide between medicine and technology.

Major in Medical Visualisation

By majoring in Medical Visualisation, you will acquire expertise in the field of medical imaging and processing. Students study problems encountered in a clinical environment and learn how to resolve them.

Major in Medical Photonics

Specialisation in Medical Photonics covers facets of biomedical optics and biophysics. You will study problems and find solutions at the microscopic level.

Job Prospects

As our graduate, you will be highly sought after by medical engineering firms researching new technologies in their R&D labs, aimed at producing medical diagnostics and therapy devices for the next generation and beyond.

As our graduate, you will acquire practical skills that enable you to solve problems independently and utilise your creative potential.
