Combines computer science with aspects of biology and medicine

Computer-assisted medical imaging technology plays a crucial role in modern clinical environments, as medical diagnosis and treatment are increasingly supported by imaging procedures. Consequently, there is a growing demand for specialists that are skilled in this very particular field at the intersection of computer science and medicine.

Hands-on Hospital Experience

Biomedical Computing focuses on bridging the gap between computer science and medicine. The possibilities for a clinical project and several newly created courses by the medical school provide students with a unique understanding of medical problems in imaging, interventions and diagnosis. Many events take place in the hospitals of our medical school to provide students with a proper insight into clinical routine. Only this understanding can foster innovative thinking from an engineering perspective.

Compiling your Study Plan

In Biomedical Computing we introduce a novel scheme for individual study counseling. Students are assigned to study advisors to discuss and approve their curriculum. The advisor has a counseling function and a meeting together with each student is required before lectures can be attended. Thus students are driven to select related courses from the extended offer of the Informatics department to enjoy their individually tailored but well focused study plan.

Focus

Biomedical Computing (BMC) is an international Master‘s program of the Technische Universität München that aims at motivated above-average students holding a Bachelor’s degree in informatics, mathematics, physics or electrical engineering. Focusing on biomedical image computing and computer assisted interventions, BMC allows students to get introduced to medical data acquisition and management, medical terminology as well as physics of medical imaging. Furthermore, students get familiarized with medical image processing, visualization, advanced user interfaces and computer aided medical solutions.

Competence

More than twelve professors from fields like medical data acquisition and management, physics of medical imaging, orthopedics and trauma surgery, medical image processing, visualization, advanced user interfaces and computer aided medical solutions guarantee an excellent education.

Program Overview

During the first semester, all students have to take mandatory fundamental medical science and technology courses. Remaining credits for the first semester are filled with complementary courses that depend on the students‘ previous education. Computer Science majors can choose from advanced courses in mathematics, whereas mathematics and physics majors can select from a set of computer science courses. In the second and third semesters, students are taking additional mandatory courses related to medicine and visual computing. Missing credits can be earned by attending courses from a list of general-interest lectures. Students can acquire practical experience by participating in lab courses and in a clinical project. The fourth semester is intended for the completion of the Master‘s thesis.

Computational Science and Engineering
The understanding of phenomena and processes from science and engineering is, today, no longer merely based on theory and experiment, but more and more on computations, as well. Computer simulations supplement experiments, and sometimes even allow the study of technical systems and natural phenomena that would be too time-consuming, expensive, or dangerous (if possible at all) to study by experiment alone.

Data Engineering and Analytics
Die Verarbeitung und Auswertung von extrem großen Datenmengen ist ein drängendes Problem in vielen Bereichen und erfordert ganz neue Techniken und Verfahren. Dieser Trend zu "Big Data" wird durch eine Reihe von Entwicklungen vorangetrieben: Erstens wird es immer einfacher, große Mengen von Daten zu erzeugen und zu speichern, z.B. wegen günstigem Speicherplatz, Sensoren, smart devices, Sozialen Netzwerken, usw. Zweitens, können diese großen Datenmengen durch technische Fortschritte wie z.B. schnelle multi-core Systeme und Cloud Computing auch in großem Stil verarbeitet werden.
