> Technology is constructive
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine are new interdisciplinary fields in biomedical sciences, which aim at the replacement of defective parts in the human body. The possibility to construct functional human tissues like skin, muscle or bone in the laboratory is one of the great future challenges in medicine. Since there is a growing demand of such artificial tissues, research and development of new therapies is currently boosted.
Future Experts with cutting edge know-how
Tissue engineers develop methods to repair or replace injured or diseased tissue in the human body. The Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine masters program offers special courses to meet the needs of the students who will be the future experts in this field and provides them with a solid background in natural sciences. Ongoing collaboration with research groups at other academic institutions and the business community ensures cutting edge know-how. Besides a sound theoretical background practical hands-on experience is gained in team-oriented laboratory projects. Additionally, students improve their practical skills in industrial companies or academic institutions while working on their masters thesis.
The degree program is also offered as a double degree program in cooperation with the Linköping University (LiU), Sweden. Students of the masters degree program Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine who apply and are admitted to the double degree program complete their first year at UAS Technikum Wien and change to LiU for the second year to acquire two academic degrees.
