Bachelor of Science 

Language of instruction / examination is German.

Qualification Profile of the Graduate

The programme is structured into 6 theoretical semesters, plus a work experience semester and the Bachelor thesis.

Learning is based on a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical experience. The aims are to provide students the opportunity to acquire the knowledge base, professional awareness, critical faculty, interpretative and communicative skills and ethical responsibility expected of informed professionals working within specialist.

In studying Biomedical Engineering at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences, the students benefit from a practically-oriented curriculum, close contacts to local industry and a wide choice of projects. The laboratories have state of the art equipment and provide contact with professional life as well as science.

The basic study program of the first academic year covers 10 mandatory courses in

  • Mathematics and Physics
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Electrical Engineering and Electronics
  • Applied Computer Sciences and Object-Oriented Programming

The main study program of semester 2 through 7 covers 16 mandatory courses in mathematics, electrical engineering, clinical medicine,  business administration, communications and electronics, 4 electives, the practical study semester and the bachelor thesis. The mandatory courses cover

  •  Mathematical Fundamentals of Scientific Engineering
  •  Clinical Medicine
  •  Biomedical Optics and Technology
