Specialisation Biomechanical Engineering

In the interdisciplinary Specialisation Biomechanical Engineering you will deal with partial aspects of engineering, natural sciences and medicine in order to develop innovative and sustainable solutions for the medical technology of the future.

The Specialisation Biomechanical Engineering focuses on the following medical technology topics: Surgical Technologies (endoprostheses, implants and surgical tools), Rehabilitation Engineering and Soft Tissue Biomechanics.

Why study Biomechanical Engineering?

Medical technology has a long tradition in Switzerland, which reflects the large number of companies and innovations created in the medtech sector.

The Specialisation Biomechanical Engineering (BME) covers a variety of research and application areas in medical technology. Theoretical basics are taught as well as concrete examples from practice. The knowledge gained from the course should enable you to develop new technologies that will improve the health and quality of life of society in the future.

How is the specialisation structured?

The Specialisation Biomechanical Engineering takes place in the 5th and 6th semester of the Bachelor's programme.
