What you can offer

You are interested in the intersection of new biomedical science technologies and medical disciplines. You want to participate in the current discourse of science and research and to support the methodology and technology transfer in diverse fields of practice. You find it exciting to be actively involved in research processes at hospitals, universities or non-university research institutions and want to make an important contribution to medical progress. You are happy to take on strategic tasks and management responsibilities in your professional field.

What we offer you

FH Campus Wien is now the largest university of applied sciences for health in Austria and the largest training provider for biomedical science. After the legal framework was created in 2006 to introduce the MTD academies and the midwife academy into the higher education sector, FH Campus Wien launched the first bachelor's degree programs in 2007. Shortly afterwards the first master's degree programs where launched in the Department of Health. Today, FH Campus Vienna now has extensive expertise and a large network at its disposal. An important partner in the areas of education, research and development is the Vienna Hospital Association (KAV). We cooperate particularly closely with the professional association biomed austria for this master's degree program. Professional events, such as the Annual Meeting of Biomedical Scientists, are regularly held at our campus. The close cooperation with scientists from the Medical University of Vienna further increases the quality of your education. Our lecturers include these scientists and other top experts. You will benefit from the state-of-the-art infrastructure of our attractive main campus which also includes biomedical S2 laboratories. Furthermore, you will also have the opportunity to join an interdisciplinary, professional community. There is great potential in research projects at the intersection of health and technology. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.

What makes this degree program special

Unlike other advanced professional training, in the program at FH Campus Wien you will benefit from a comprehensive education with an internationally accredited academic degree. The master's degree program combines biomedical knowledge of cellular and molecular mechanisms and processes with methods and technologies in biomedical diagnostics. You will be active in genomics, proteomics and cell biology. For instance, we are working to develop better methods for the clinical diagnosis of neuropathy, a nerve damage that occurs in the feet of people suffering from diabetes, in order to prevent late complications such as amputation. Our graduate Eva Dassler received an award at the Medical University of Vienna from the Research Society of Neuropathology Austria for her master's thesis on alternative examination methods. Alisa Coric was awarded second place in the "Abbott Prize 2012 for Scientific Publications" for her master's thesis "Measurement of the Molecules of the Cellular Clock in Association with Alzheimer's Disease". New diagnostic methods that can measure certain molecules should make it possible in future to identify serious diseases such as Alzheimer even before the onset of the first symptoms.


What you will learn in the degree program

You will acquire sound knowledge of molecular and cellular mechanisms in physiologically and pathologically changed functional systems and organs. You will acquire appropriate therapeutic concepts and expand your knowledge of biomedical diagnostic methods and technologies in the areas of genomics, proteomics, cell biology and immunology. The focus is on personalized medicine that follows specific, individualized therapy approaches.

  • Students learn about the entire research process from research design to application, funding structures up to data management and publication.
  • In addition to establishing comprehensive research skills, in the program you will further develop your skills in personnel, project and quality management.
  • During the program you will also earn certificates as an "Internal Auditor" and "Quality Manager". With these certificates you will be qualified and entitled to carry out internal audits in health care facilities.
