Master's Programs

Bioengineering combines the findings and approaches of various disciplines such as Medicine, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Sciences in the interest of developing leading-edge procedures for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.

The Technical University of Munich is one of the few technical universities in Germany integrating Biology (School of Life Sciences), Bioengineering (Forschungscampus Garching), and Medicine (Klinikum rechts der Isar, MRI), and is therefore optimally suited for hosting Master’s programs in the field of Bioengineering.

Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics

The Master's program "Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics" is conducted at TUM’s Physics Department. The program is run in close collaboration with the Munich School of BioEngineering in order to accommodate the highly interdisciplinary and research-oriented orientation of the degree program. The curriculum is intended to prepare students for career activities in research and industry in fields such as Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics.
