Master's Work Experience (BEMP)
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.
PH1075 is a semester module in English language at Master’s level which is offered every semester.
This module description is valid from WS 2019/20 .
If not stated otherwise for export to a non-physics program the student workload is given in the following table.
|Total workload||Contact hours||Credits (ECTS)|

Responsible coordinator of the module PH1075 is Julia Herzen.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
The Master's training is part of the research phase in which the students work on a current topic in the field of biomedical engineering and medical physics. Possible areas of research are based on the main research areas of the Department of Physics and the Munich School of BioEngineering, as well as the special offer of the professors. Topics are e.g. imaging (x-ray imaging, MRI, opto-accustic imaging,...), biosensors (lab on chip,...), radiation therapy, nuclear medicine or data processing in medicine.
The Master's training serves the learning of special subject-specific methods, which are necessary for the realisation of a Master's thesis in the field of biomedical engineering and medical physics. For experimental topics, these are usually specific preparation and measurement skills as well as methods for data evaluation. For theoretically oriented topics, students learn the necessary analytical and numerical methods that are necessary for research work in the corresponding focus area.
At the end of the Master's training, a project plan of the intended Master's thesis will be made and a project outline prepared.
After successful completion of the module the students are able to:
- apply the theoretical or experimental methods needed for theyr planned master's thesis
- to analyse and evaluate the results of these methods
- to apply methods of planning scientific projects to a given topic.
Admission to the module requires that all additional module requirements that are specified in the letter of admission to the Master's programme in Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics have been met.
It is recommended that at least 40 ECTS from the modules of the specialization phase in the Master's programme Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics have been successfully completed.

Learning and Teaching Methods
The module consists of participation in the working world of a research group dealing with experimental or theoretical topics. The students learn their special subject-specific methods, which are deepened in supervisor discussions, in discussions and in independent literature studies. Within the framework of the supervisor interviews, a project plan for the intended Master's thesis will be elaborated and a project outline drawn up.
Scientific set up, computer, specific software, simulations.
Current scientific publications on the specific topic - detailed information from the respective supervisor.
Description of exams and course work
In the daily use of the technical tools (experiments/software/simulations) as well as through discussions of the progress with the supervisor it is evaluated if the students understand the contexts and can apply the methods. In a final discussion with the supervisor it will be checked whether the project planned for the master thesis makes sense and is feasible.
The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester. There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
