Course content

Biomedical Engineering links together life sciences with traditional engineering sciences. Healthcare is placing ever-increasing and more fascinating technical demands on Biomedical Engineering, under growing demographic, ethical, ecological and cost pressures. Scientific and economic growth potential for Biomedical Engineering is believed to be very high, especially in Europe and the USA. In line with its motto 'Technology for people' and with its excellence in engineering sciences, TU Wien is rising to this challenge, both in its research and in research-led teaching, by focusing its activities in the field of Biomedical Engineering.
