About this Program

This program's coursework is divided into four semesters. Each study program begins in the winter semester.

First semester students will be enrolled individually in courses to establish a strong breadth of fundamental knowledge. Students with degrees in electronics, information technology, mechanical engineering, physics, process engineering, materials technology or mechatronics will be enrolled in introductory courses for medicine and medical technology. Students with degrees in medical technology will be enrolled in courses focusing on the development of technical skills.

During the second semester, students can enroll in specialized courses. The common basics developed in the first semester will be expanded upon in practical applications. This coursework will mainly focus on project-oriented teamwork.

Third semester students will complete a research internship with a minimum duration of four months. On this they have to write a report. They also have to take part in the annual student conference held at L├╝beck Campus every March. There they have to present a poster, a talk and write a scientific paper.

The preparation and writing of a master's thesis with a duration of 6 months and the final oral exam are the main contents of the fourth semester.
