Continuous scientific and technological progress requires a permanent engagement with innovative methods and procedures as well as new trends and technologies for biomedical analysis on the part of the students. They are able to research current scientific findings in the national and international field, can derive research-relevant questions and objectives, formulate hypotheses and prepare the collected data to answer their questions. They can present their own Bachelor thesis concept and its results comprehensively and understandably; critically reflect on their own research process by constantly reviewing and adapting the requirements of the respective research phase;recognize and articulate problems with respect to the deviation from the research logical structure and, if need be, discuss further possible solutions. They are able to project, edit and evaluate innovative Topics.. They are able to project, edit and evaluate innovative topics. They deal with innovative technologies and topics in the field of biomedical analysis in order to handle future innovative technologies, trends and developments adequately. In addition, students are able to understand biomedical analytics integratively, i.e. understand complex work processes and cope with them even under lifelike conditions.
