Medical Informatics

Process, edit and analyse biological and medical data.

The Medical Computer Sciences course teaches students the fundamental principles of analysing and processing biomedical data. An important part of this is the ability to visualise data of this kind both physically and conceptually. It is also a matter of intelligently managing the recorded data using self-developed systems and thus also of transmitting data. This requires specific skills in biological and medical programming and simulation.

Course details


Medical computer scientists  analyse, visualise and process biomedical signal and image data, optimise surgical procedures using computer-aided systems or design specific user interfaces and technical software processes in the field of medicine. They structure healthcare work processes more efficiently and optimise the flow of information.


The Medical Computer Sciences course is geared towards people who have a strong interest in technology and computer science as well as in the sciences.
