The program provides students with a broad education to prepare for a variety of careers in the field of life sciences. By focusing in-depth on the molecular mechanisms of physiological and pathophysiological processes, students study subjects at the interface of biology, physics, computer science and engineering.
The program places a special emphasis on presenting underlying laws of physics and the respective correlations to physical techniques and methods used predominantly in the area of research.
Graduates of the Master’s degree program in Biophysics are highly qualified to work in various fields, having honed skills to pursue careers in areas such as device measuring, implementing analytical processes in the lab, pharmaceuticals, nanobiotechnology, diagnostic and radiotherapy departments at medical institutions, and base-knowledge medical research. The high number of internships available and low faculty-to-student ratio (<15) for each professor make the Master’s degree program Biophysics particularly attractive.
