Study Program Biomechanical Engineering (BiME)

Medical implants, assistance systems, orthoses and prostheses - all biomechanical systems that are indispensable to us. As an important driver of medical progress, the medical technology industry is booming. The demand for innovative ideas and their implementation in high-performance, sustainable and reliable medical products is increasing.

With our master's degree program in Biomechanical Engineering, Otto von Guericke University trains highly qualified engineers for this future-oriented sector. Optimal study conditions are provided by excellent equipment in the teaching and research facilities, very close cooperation with the Magdeburg University Hospital, and comprehensive student support.

On our website you will find everything worth knowing and highlights about the study program. In addition to current news from the study program, students and prospective students will find all important information. Contact can be made with our study program advisor, Karsten Harnisch, at any time. Online application is possible every winter semester.
