Overview

BioMechatronics deals with the analysis, conception and optimization of mechatronic products by applying knowledge from living nature. Suggestions can come from biology, medicine or psychology. The BioMechatronics thus takes up partial aspects of bionics. Biomechatronic systems are characterized by the fact that they perceive their environment and can act in it in a resource-efficient manner. A key feature is their ability to adapt to changing and new tasks and environments. Such systems are particularly relevant in the areas of automation technology, health / rehabilitation technology, medical technology or robotics.
The course is aimed at students who are looking for a job that is relatively close to research and who see a particular attraction in working on issues from engineering sciences using methods from biology, computer science and mathematics.
Bio → Mechatronics: Analysis, conception and optimization of mechatronic products by applying knowledge from living nature.
Mechatronics → Bio: Support, optimization and synthetic replacement of biological (sub) systems.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

 

The prerequisite for the course is successful participation in an application process in which it is determined who is suitable for the course and receives access. As part of this process, it is checked whether a first university degree qualifying for the master’s degree is available. This must be proven by means of the diploma and the associated documents (transcript of records, diploma supplement, etc.). To what extent further admission requirements exist or the submission of further documents is planned (language requirements, elaboration with statements on qualification, synopsis, project drafts, etc.), please refer to the current subject-specific provisions of the course: https://ekvv.uni-bielefeld.de / sinfo / publ / master-as / biomechatronics / pdf. There you will also find regulations on
The application process takes place via the online application portal of Bielefeld University for a winter semester and via the online application portal of Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences for a summer semester.
This course is offered as a cooperation with Bielefeld University. In the winter semester, the application / enrollment at the university takes place in the summer semester at the FH Bielefeld.

CAREER POSPECTS

The master’s program conveys theoretical basics, scientific skills and methodological competence in the field of systems engineering as well as professional qualifications such as dealing with modern software and hardware systems. In addition, external references are taken into account and social, scientific and ethical findings are taken into account that result from the application of knowledge and from the decisions.

The students are instructed both in independent work according to the scientific principles of engineering and in cooperative group work (social skills and leadership skills). The interdisciplinary nature of the course is particularly important here. In industry, in the service sector and in research in the field of mechatronic systems, there is a high demand for engineers with an interdisciplinary training, as is taking place in Bielefeld. Possible occupational fields are, for example, in the development departments of mechanical and plant engineering, in production facilities, in the automotive industry, in medical technology, in the development of autonomously operating systems (robots, intelligent assistance systems) and in scientific research.

RESEARCH 

The BioMechatronics course is strongly characterized by interdisciplinary issues. It is therefore an important aspect to bring future engineers closer to the language and the different perspectives of biology and to convey a basic understanding of moving biological systems. This ranges from neuro and behavioral biology to biomechanics and does not leave out aspects of psychology and ethics. A central point in biomechatronic research is the abstraction of biological templates in order to ensure technical transferability. In order to ensure the connection between the mechatronic and the biological system, the focus is on properties such as resource efficiency, miniaturization, adaptability, robustness and elasticity.
