The entire information process chain from biometric sensors and vital parameters monitoring up to the storage of these data in a centralized system will be covered in medical informatics as a foundation for the development of intelligent systems in clinical, therapeutic and private home settings.

In order to collect and capture using sensors, securely transmit and centrally store these biometric data in accordance to Austrian health care data laws and regulations (ELGA),  special focus will be placed on the communication between sensors and the embedded systems (e.g., Arduino, Raspberry Pi) as well as mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows Phone).

Field specific skills:

  • Information systems in the field of health care
  • eHealth portals
  • Mobile medical systems
  • Home monitoring and telemedicine
  • Security architectures in the healthcare sector
  • Decision support in medical technology diagnositcs
  • Optimization of processes in the healthcare sector

The bachelor degree program medIT-Medical Systems Engineering offers a goal-oriented education in the field of medical device engineering and technology. The contents of the program encompasses the total medical engineering process chain from the signal creation (e.g brain waves) to the signal capturing and processing (e.g. EEG) up to the visualization of the captured data.  In the field of modern medicine imaging processes (e.g. CT, MRT, ultrasound, etc.) provide the majority of diagnostic relevant data.

Field specific skills:

  • Bio-sensors (EEG, blood pressure, blood sugar, etc.)
  • Bio-signal processing
  • Conceptualization, analysis, and implementation of technical systems in the healthcare field
  • Medical image development processes and imaging systems (X-rays, CT, MR, ultrasound, etc.)
  • Medical image processing for the further and new developments of medical image analytical systems
  • Application deadline:

    The application system is open until 15.05.2018 for applicants from EU, GUS, America and South America. In case of study places left, we will open the following application term: 16.05.2018 - 31.07.2018
