Overview

The course prepares students for scientific activities in the professional fields of physical engineering and medical physics. The students acquire the ability to understand the context of their subject and to apply and develop scientific methods and findings.

Graduates are able to work independently, scientifically and application-oriented as well as interdisciplinary. Building on the knowledge imparted in the bachelor's degree, special knowledge in application-relevant subjects must be acquired.

In the master’s course, modules are offered in the following areas:

  • mathematics
  • technical Physics
  • Laser technology
  • Radiation physics
  • Electrodynamics
  • Medical-optical methods
  • Magnetic resonance method
  • Physical measurement technology
  • Medical physics projects

In the 2nd and 3rd semester there are elective courses for deepening and specialization. The students gain insights into current developments in physical technology and new methods in diagnostics and therapy in medicine. The following areas are available to students for teaching and applied research and development:

  • Physics laboratory
  • Monitoring
  • Physical measurement technology
  • Medical radiation physics and imaging
  • Optics and laser technology

 

PRACTICAL RELEVANCE 

The course prepares students for scientific activities in the professional fields of physical engineering and medical physics. The students acquire the ability to understand the context of their subject and to apply and develop scientific methods and findings.

Our graduates are able to work independently, scientifically and application-oriented as well as interdisciplinary.

Building on the knowledge imparted in the bachelor's degree, special knowledge in application-relevant subjects must be acquired.

The students are introduced to independent work through project work on medical physics topics. In the module projects on medical physics, students work on and research current topics. As a rule, these are practical problems from partner institutes such as the Charité Berlin, with which our university maintains good relationships.

RESEARCH 

The research activities of the degree program arise directly from the practical study and thus offer the opportunity to involve students in projects at an early stage. A large part of these research projects are located outside the university, which on the one hand ensures that they are up-to-date and on the other hand ensures the necessary resources.

Cooperation partners are primarily the large university hospitals in Berlin and their affiliated institutes such as Laser- und Medizin-Technik GmbH Berlin. The Helmholtz Center for Materials and Energy and a number of small and medium-sized technology companies are also partners in research and development.

Topics are primarily questions of medical imaging using different modalities from laser applications to magnetic resonance tomography to classic methods using ionizing radiation, which must be optimized with regard to their application in cancer therapy. This research field is processed in cooperation with industry and research institutions.

As a rule, all subject areas offer the opportunity, in addition to internships and project work, to complete the master's thesis in an innovative and practical environment.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Graduates of the Physical Technology - Medical Physics course encounter a growing market for medical technology devices - also for demographic reasons. The applications in increasingly technology-based health services are increasing.

Job opportunities can be found in many areas: from development to sales on the part of the manufacturer via the interface of official monitoring to the user in a healthcare system that is changing into industrial structures.

Today, high technology pervades all stages of medical procedures from diagnosis to therapy. The course is accordingly broad, application-oriented and adapted to the complexity and rapid development of the field.

Our graduates work in the development departments of large medical technology companies as well as MPEs in the medical technology departments of clinics. Contents of the recruitment-related, because officially required, specialist customers can be acquired in the course.

The professional requirements for customer service and sales of medical technology systems as well as for monitoring functions in test centers and authorities are also successfully covered with the knowledge acquired here.

Last but not least, our course content also enables qualified and successful collaboration in companies in which innovative products are created at the interface between fundamentals and applications.
