Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering
Biomedical Engineering is a rapidly emerging discipline that applies engineering tools and methods to medical diagnostics and treatment. Main goals are to provide more and better care with less people and to increase cost effectiveness in healthcare systems. Biomedical engineers are engaging for example in digitization, automatization and miniaturization of medical diagnostic and treatment devices. This includes developing robotic endoscopes, new MRI-technology and visionary image analysis and registration tools.
This Joint Degree Master in Biomedical Engineering is offered by the School of Life Sciences of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) and the Medical Faculty of the University of Basel. The program takes place on site at the School of Life Sciences in Muttenz and at the University Campuses in Allschwil and Basel. It is designed for students holding a Bachelor’s degree of various backgrounds like engineering, natural sciences, computer sciences, medicine or health sciences. With the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering in their hands, the graduates can pursue a scientific career, for example by applying for a doctoral program in Biomedical Engineering or for positions in a wide range of professions in the Medtech industry.
