The master's degree in medical technology offers a variety of natural and engineering disciplines in order to develop innovative technical solutions in various areas of medical technology. With this course of study, the University of Stuttgart takes advantage of the great opportunities offered by its broad portfolio of subjects: The combination of disciplinary depth and interdisciplinary networking of engineering and natural sciences for practical research and teaching in medical technology.

Twelve institutes and departments from a total of five faculties at the University of Stuttgart are involved in the master’s course in medical technology. There is also an exchange area with the Master’s degree in Biomedical Technologies at the University of Tübingen.



  • Degree in a bachelor's degree program lasting at least six semesters (or an equivalent degree)
  • Degree in the respective course or a course with very similar content
  • Depending on the course, there may be additional requirements. The exact admission criteria can be found in the admission regulations

Admission with conditions

In the case of admission with conditions, you will be admitted, but you must catch up on certain examinations from the bachelor's degree before you register for the master's thesis. This can be the case, for example, if you completed your bachelor's degree at another university or a university of applied sciences and did not take seminars or modules there that you need for the master’s degree at the University of Stuttgart. The final decision as to whether your professional aptitude is recognized as sufficient is made by the admissions committee .

Graduated from a university of applied sciences

A degree from a university of applied sciences (formerly a university of applied sciences) or the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University basically entitles you to study for a master’s degree at a university, according to the State University Act.

Admission restriction (NC)

In master’s courses in which the number of study places is limited (Numerus Clausus (NC)), ranking lists are created for the allocation of study places based on the criteria that are a prerequisite for admission to the master’s course. The admission regulations for the relevant master’s degree program regulate further details.

Course-specific features

Apart from the admission with conditions, there are other variants of admission depending on the subject:



The national and international fields of activity of medical technicians lie in regional medical technology companies, clinics and research institutions as well as in globally operating companies and corporations. The specializations in the master’s degree in medical technology represent growth areas in medical technology and enable the following fields of activity, among others:
