O que eu aprenderei?

Bio fabrication is an emerging technology in the field of medical engineering. In particular, additive production processes (such as 3D printing) are expected to make important contributions to technological progress in the near term – and so is bio fabrication. The internationally oriented master’s programme Bio fabrication is interdisciplinary in nature, representing an engineering curriculum at the intersection of technology, chemistry, materials science, biology, and medicine. We offer you the opportunity to work in a research area at the cutting edge of medical innovation. Students profit from our conveniently located key labs, including those at Bayreuth’s Centre for Materials Science & Engineering (ZMW, TAO) and at the new Bavarian Polymer Institute.

Profile of the Master’s Programme

The master’s programme Bio fabrication is highly practice-oriented, offering you the opportunity to hone both your theoretical and practical skills. This combines with an excellent, far-reaching network of international partners in Australia, Thailand, France, the United States, the Netherlands, and Spain to give students plenty of ways to gain experience abroad. The curriculum, the instructors, and the involvement of selected international partner universities and research institutions in the areas of biomaterial research and bio fabrication all help enable a smooth transition to further postgraduate studies or a demanding scientific career.

Fields of Employment

  • Bio fabrication is considered a modern growth sector. There is an increasing demand for the skills addressed in the study programme in many different occupational fields:
  • Institutional and industrial research: fundamental research in medicine and biomedicine, especially in the area of medical engineering
  • Industrial development: developing medical implants and technical aids for diagnosis, therapy, and monitoring market approval for medical use
  • Clinical medical technology: operating complex systems, advising physicians, safety inspections
