Professional roles where the combined knowledge of technology and physiology is needed, for instance manufacturing technology used in healthcare, in research and development or as a project leader. Other roles include safety issues in the vehicle industry or sports technology or as consultants in healthcare organisation or hospitals.
Healthcare is becoming increasingly dependent on technologically advanced tools, and an ageing population requires technical aids. Economic and demographic changes are demanding structural reforms in society and healthcare. This demand generates the need for professionals with an understanding of both technology and medicine.
The master's program in Medical Engineering trains your ability to produce and develop medical technology as part of a project group, in private companies or in healthcare. A broad professional role makes it possible to work in areas such as technical development, sales or administrative project management, depending on competence and personal interest.
The labour market mainly consists of small enterprises specialised in specific products, and the expanding field also offers good possibilities to start one's own business. Graduates of the program have had as their first occupation jobs as diverse as PhD students, engineering consultants or programrs for companies in various technical fields, support engineers, quality control engineers or sale consultant for clinical-related companies. Prominent research centres that hired our former students are ETH, EPFL, UCL, CERN and KI. The list of large companies contains Siemens, Philips, GE, Elekta, Maquet, Johnsons & Johnson, SAAB, and Skandia, among others. Examples of small and medium companies consistently hiring the program's graduates are Elekta, RaySearch, Episurf, HotSwap, Sectra and Tobii. Last but not least, hospitals and public organisations with an interest in healthcare are also typical employers of our former students.
