Biomedical engineering – the application of engineering principles to the medical field – is a growing interdisciplinary area of the present century. Thanks to increasing life expectancy, its potential is by far above average. Swiss companies are among the global players in key business areas such as dental implants. Small- to medium-sized enterprises, which occupy market niches, reap extraordinary rewards. Since, therefore, an increasing demand for well-educated and motivated engineers with medical knowledge can be expected, the DBE offers tailored education with a Master of Science program and a PhD program.
