The Biomedical Engineering program is a specialized master course. It has no bachelor course of studies as a precursor. Admission is granted to applicants coming from various fields of study. Students will apply their previously acquired knowledge and abilities to fully integrate the highly interdisciplinary subject matter.
Students are required to take all four Basic Modules. Within each Module all the courses are mandatory. The courses of the four Basic Modules add up to 45 ECTS.
* Basics in Applied Mathematics
* Basics in Biomedical Engineering
* Basics in Engineering Mechanics
* Basics in Human Medicine
Students choose freely from the variety of courses offered in these three modules. However, the chosen course must not be mandatory for the particular student. (16 ECTS)
* Selected Topics in Biomedical Engineering
* Technology Transfer
Unrestricted electives can be freely chosen by the student from the entire curriculum of the University of Bern and the Bern University of Applied Sciences Engineering and Information Technology. (5 ECTS)
In accordance with their supervisors students select a topic for their master thesis. Usually the student will conduct thesis research and prepare the thesis during a time frame of up to six months. (30 ECTS)
Duration of the Master Course
The study course takes 4 semesters; it can be extended to a maximum of 6 semesters.
It is possible to complete the studies parallel to a professional occupation. However, it is not advisable to take the master course while working full-time. We recommend that the part-time occupation does not exceed 40-50% if the master course should be completed within 4 semesters.
Compulsory courses take place (with rare exceptions) on only 3 days per week. Students who take the master course while working part-time can apply for an extension of the maximum duration.
The academic year is divided into two semesters each of which takes 14 weeks. The fall semester starts in mid-September and ends before Christmas, the spring semester lasts from mid-February until the end of May.
Bachelor graduates of Human, Dental, and Veterinary Medicine have to make up for missing technical knowledge in the course of their studies.
Graduates from other academic fields can also apply. Depending on their background they may be admitted under the condition that they make up for missing technical or general knowledge.
