Programme content


The Industrial Med Tec programme is based on a wide variety of mechanical engineering fundamentals. The more in-depth focus in later semesters is derived directly from the core priorities and key areas of Tuttlingen's medical engineering companies.

The most important aspects of the course are therefore medical appliance engineering, surgical instruments, implants, and minimally invasive procedures.

Graduates primarily go on to work in the development of medical appliances and systems, the construction and manufacturing according to medical standards, and the planning of medical facilities.
