Lernergebnisse

Bioengineering and biomedical engineering are developing fields of science that merge engineering skill with biology and medicine. The goal is to apply problem solving skillset and culture (engineering) to addressing problems in biological discovery and clinical need. At the end of the module students are able to understand the basic concepts of bioengineering (BE) and biomedical engineering (BME) and the conceptual junctions between engineering principles, biology and medicine. The students will gather the basic tools required for problem solving in different directions of the Life Sciences. This introductory course can also serve as a guide on how to develop a concise career path as an engineer within Life Sciences and also points to the enormous invention and innovation potential of this exciting scientific junction, than can lead to significant scientific or entrepreneurship success.

Lern- und Lehrmethoden

The module consists of 13 90 min lectures that will deliver the basic concepts of different aspects of Bio (medical) engineering and 4 practical exercises where basic principles and tools of bioengineering and biomedical engineering are explored in more detail. Tours of bioengineering laboratories and explanations of critical current research topics are also given. Two seminars on entrepreneurship and scientific success case studies in this field are also organized. The lecture presents the basic principles of different BE / BME directions and each lecture is conceptualized with ample (15 min) time for questions and discussions within the plenum.
