Job Opportunities & Perspectives
Medicine, engineering, and natural science: a combination for the future
The medical engineering sector is booming, but there is already a lack of specialists with technological experience.
The Industrial Med Tec programme trains these specialists, is practical, and offers up-to-date course content and direct contact with more than 100 leading companies, including many from the medical engineering sector.
The Tuttlingen campus has strong connections to business and industry, and company tours and industrial placements give students the chance to get their foot in the door early on and secure an in-demand job in the industry. The chances of being hired by one of the participating companies after graduation are also very high.
