What will I learn?

The interprofessional and interdisciplinary master's degree program in Biomedical Technologies is characterized by practice orientation and internationality.

The master program at the University of Tübingen is an excellent choice for students seeking advanced academic and application-oriented research training in emerging fields of Biomedical Technologies integrating the excellent focus areas of Implantology, Bioimaging and Nanoanalytics / Interfaces. The trainings are offered by experts in basic as well as clinical sciences and provide a comprehensive overview of the area.

The program provides:

Lectures and modules embedded in a modern technological and medical environment and supported by an interdisciplinary team of internationally well-known and distinguished scientists.
Excellent study conditions in small training groups with individual contact to researchers and clinicians.
Close cooperation with more than 40 universities all over the world, which offers the option to complete a practical work experience or to write the master thesis abroad.
Furthermore, close interaction with companies and research institutes in Medical Technologies and Biomedical Technologies secures a competence-based study program, practical experiences and the enclosure of researchers from industry in lectures.

In the first year, students can choose two out of three specialization modules (Implantology, Bioimaging, Nanoanalytics / Interfaces) allowing the students to tailor the program to their individual interests. The second year of the master program is flexibly organized to allow students to gain practical experience in research institutes, industry or abroad.


Implantology encompasses the development and production of both vital and avital implants. The aim of this module is to transfer a detailed knowledge about tissue engineering, biomaterials, reactor technology as well as interfaces between tissues and synthetic surfaces, biocompatibility, surface passivation and signal transduction. The scope of topics ranges from basic research to clinical trials, including the design of implants, their use in animal trials and their clinical application.


Bioimaging imparts deeper knowledge regarding preclinial imaging and clinical application, ie positron-emission tomography (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), optical imaging (OI), computer tomography (CT), ultrasound (US) and encloses the development of the future generation PET and mulimodality imaging equipment.

On the basis of special laboratory techniques different methods of measurement are demonstrated. For clinical application students discuss very special issues on Biomedical Technologies which are illustrated in practical sessions.

Nanoanalytics / interfaces

Nanoanalytics / Interfaces integrate biological and molecular nanophysics, nanotechnology, biomedical measurement technology, scanning probe microscopy, electron microscopy, nanostructures, nanomechanics, label-free detection methods, scientific instrumentation and devices, transducers, electrical sensing of living cells, chip-based sensors, hard and software development.

Career opportunities

The Master's program in Biomedical Technologies lasts two academic years (4 semesters) and leads to a Master of Science (M. Sc.) Degree. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates may choose to continue their studies by directly pursuing a doctorate in Biomedical Technologies.

Alternatively, graduates may choose to embark upon a professional career with responsibility:

Design and development of medical devices for clinical application
Design, development and production of medical devices and instruments
