Master programme Digital Healthcare

Customise your study programme! Technicians get to familiarise themselves with the processes in the healthcare sector, while healthcare experts learn to understand the requirements of information and communication technologies. Some of the courses of the programme are German-taught, others are held in English.

A particular focus lies on the acquisition of activity competencies in the collection and processing of health data, the design and prototyping of healthcare interfaces and the evidence-based evaluation of patient engagements.

Over the course of four semesters, our students work on a joint Digital Healthcare project. Exemplary solutions include mixed-reality visualizations in radiology or sensor-supported systems for gait rehabilitation.


Students with a technical background learn the basics in the healthcare area, while students from the healthcare area acquire basic technical knowledge.

Select between Specialisations

  • Healthcare Technology Development: Technical skills for the design and development of technical solutions for healthcare
  • Healthcare Technology Assessment: Technical skills for the evidence-based evaluation of digital technologies/media in prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care
