Specialization Medical Engineering

Specialization Medical Engineering in the course of study General Mechanical Engineering

The Specialization Medical Engineering prepares the student for a professional career in the field of research, development and possibly in the quality-management of medical devices. The students can choose subjects from a given catalog from interdisciplinary fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, medicine and computer sciences related to medical problems. The specialization is supplemented by subjects from the technical – natural scientific module (Technisch-Naturwissenschaftliches-Modul) and the module general mechanical engineering (Modul Allgemeiner Maschinenbau). Furthermore excursions to medical engineering-companies are available, where the gained knowledge can be supplemented by practical experiences and first business contacts. The master thesis can be done at a chair of the RWTH Aachen or in an external company.

Good preconditions for a specialization in medical engineering are provided by the bachelor studies mechanical engineering of the RWTH Aachen, with the fields Production Technology, Design Technology, Chemical Engineering or Plastics and Textile Technology. In this fields special lectures as well as project and bachelor thesis can be coordinated with the master studies in the field of medical engineering.
