Munich School of BioEngineering

The Munich School of BioEngineering (MSB) is an interdisciplinary research center within the Technical University of Munich (TUM).


At the MSB, researchers specializing in medicine, the natural sciences, and engineering join forces to develop new methods for diagnosing or treating diseases and improved technologies that compensate for physical disabilities. The activities cover the whole development process – beginning with the study of basic scientific principles and ending with their application in new medical devices, medicines, and software programs. Research at the MSB can be divided into four areas


On both the Master's and the doctoral level, the MSB provides a variety of options for an interdisciplinary education in bioengineering, biomedical engineering, medical physics, medical informatics and related fields. More information is available on the following pages:


The MSB actively supports researchers who want to start a business and turn their findings into innovative products and services. Read more
