Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics Lab Course

Module PH1032

This module handbook serves to describe contents, learning outcome, methods and examination type as well as linking to current dates for courses and module examination in the respective sections.

Basic Information

PH1032 is a semester module in English language at Master’s level which is offered every semester.

This Module is included in the following catalogues within the study programs in physics.

  • Mandatory Modules in M.Sc. Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics

If not stated otherwise for export to a non-physics program the student workload is given in the following table.

Responsible coordinator of the module PH1032 is Julia Herzen.

Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


Advanced experiments dealing with different topics from the research area of Biomedical Engineering and Medical Phyisics are carried out. The subjects of the experiments correspond to the research areas of the different institute from the physics department and the Munich School of BioEngineering, thus facilitating future decisions regarding choices of specialization or topics for Master's theses. The topic of lab course experiments can be freely choosen.

Learning Outcome

After the successful participation in the module the student is able to:

  • prepare self-dependently for a scientific experiment
  • operate a complex experimental setup and carry out a scientific experiment
  • record all important data during measurement
  • evaluate the obtained data and write a scientific report which fulfils the fundamental requirements of a scientific publication


No preconditions in addition to the requirements for the Master’s program.

Courses, Learning and Teaching Methods and Literature

Learning and Teaching Methods

The lab course is carried out in groups of maximum 3 participants. The groups are working self-dependently as far as possible. A supervisor supports the group in case that questions or problems arise.


lab course experiments

data acquisition (manual and / or computer-assisted)


experiment manuals and continuative literature (denoted in the manual)

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

Das Modul Physikalisches Fortgeschrittenenpraktikum Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics wird als Studienleistung erbracht. Hierzu muss ein Einzelversuch aus dem zugehörigen Katalog erfolgreich durchgeführt werden.

Die Bewertung der Laborleistung (bestanden/nicht bestanden) erfolgt durch die jeweiligen Betreuenden, wobei das Erreichen der angestrebten Lernergebnisse im Fokus der Bewertung liegt. Beispielsweise wird also darauf geachtet, ob sich die Studierenden weitgehend selbständig auf das Thema des physikalischen Experiments vorbereitet haben, ob sie in der Lage waren unter Anleitung einen komplexen Versuchsaufbau zu bedienen und ein physikalisches Experiment durchzuführen, ob sie alle wichtigen experimentellen Daten während des Versuchs dokumentiert haben oder ob sie in der Lage waren, die gewonnen Daten auszuwerten und einen den wissenschaftlichen Ansprüchen genügenden Bericht zu verfassen.

Exam Repetition

The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester. There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
