Objectives:The three-week international Summer School is organized in sev-eral modules focusing on e. g. modelling in biomedical engineering (BE), computer-based methods in BE and biomaterials as well as management of projects and development of products in BE.
The objectives are to give insights to technical as well as safety aspects of engineering work. Students learn how to integrate these aspects into the design of biomedical devices which are certified and marketed within Europe.
The international Summer School “Basics of Biomedical Engineer-ing” is targeted to undergraduate students of biomedical engineer-ing and related fields at the end of their first or at the beginning of their second cycle.
Students follow seminars and work in laboratories on various top-ics. The course includes visits to hospitals and companies in the biomedical industry as well as excursions to local sights.
All lectures and examinations are held in English language.
