Master in Biomedical Engineering

Complementary Skills

Students are required to select all mandatory courses and 2-6 ECTS points from the electives courses.

Module Description

Apart from the rapid development of technology itself, today’s biomedical engineers are increasingly challenged by complementary issues like ethical aspects, project planning, quality assurance, product safety, legal regulations and intellectual property rights, as well as marketing aspects. Language competence in English is of paramount importance both in an industrial and academic environment. This situation is accounted for by the introduction of a new module called “Complementary Skills” where students are required to complete two mandatory courses (Innovation Management; Regulatory Affairs and Patents) as well as 2 ECTS from the electives courses (Scientific Writing in Biomedical Engineering; Introduction to Epidemiology and Health Technology Assessment). If a student selects more than 2 ECTS from the elective part, the additional points can be credited in the student’s major module.
