EIT Health Germany Partners involved in 3 Master Degree Programs that Deliver Innovation and Entrepreneurship Skills

Master-labelled education activities within EIT Health focus on stimulating learners to advance their knowledge, skills and attitudes in order to enhance their health-related innovation and entrepreneurial capabilities.

EIT Health Germany Partners currently offer the following three MSc programmes with the EIT-label:

  • Common European Master’s Course in Biomedical Engineering (CEMACUBE)
  • International Master Program in Innovative Medicine (IMIM)
  • Sc. in Health and Medical Data Analytics (MSC HMDA)

CEMACUBE is a European double degree Master’s program in Biomedical Engineering, running at the Universities of Groningen, Ghent, Dublin, Aachen and Prague. The goal of CEMACUBE is to prepare students from Europe and outside Europe to improve health care by applying Biomedical Engineering. Therefore a consortium of 6 universities joins their knowledge and specific expertise into a 2-year European Master’s in Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical Engineering is a broad multidisciplinary area, involving many sub-specializations, varying from regenerative medicine to implant design and from PET-scan imaging to biosensors. Only a consortium of various universities can teach all fields in BME.

The RWTH Aachen University and the Hospital provide within their program their expertise and knowledge in the different fields, but they are focusing with students in their specialization in 2 areas:

  • Artificial Organs & Implants
  • Medical Imaging

IMIMThe International Master in Innovative Medicine (IMIM) is a two-year, English-taught, master of excellence program, which focuses on the education of tomorrow’s leading translational biomedical researchers. The IMIM mission is to educate this future generation of translational scientists and professionals and to equip them with the skills and competences to excel in a wide range of multi- and interdisciplinary, internationally competitive academic and private sector environments. In addition to the above we are also proud to mention that IMIM is an EIT Health labelled Master Program. IMIM is jointly organised by three European Top 100 Universities: the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg in Germany and Uppsala Universitet in Sweden. IMIM students will benefit from the vast wealth of resources and staff experience that these three universities have to offer in the biomedical sciences, as well as from their networks within both the academic and private sectors.

Heidelberg University is the oldest university in Germany. Today, as in the past, Heidelberg is a leading institution for research and teaching in Europe. It has two medical faculties on separate campuses, one in Heidelberg and one in nearby Mannheim, both offering innovative study courses. These programs aim to graduate students from various subjects with a view to forming interdisciplinary teams and fostering mutual learning.

The Medical Faculty Mannheim of Heidelberg University emphasizes the interconnectedness between, and the excellence of, its four foci, all of which extend from research to clinical application: oncology, vascular medicine, medical technology and neuroplasticity/pain research. The active participation of almost all clinics and institutes of the faculty in these areas reflects the strong interdisciplinary approach of itsresearch.

The Master in Health and Medical Data Analytics (MSc HMDA) offers students across Europe a robust entrepreneurship education with innovative pedagogy in healthcare data analytics. Through international student mobility and cross-organizational internships, a unique multidisciplinary profile is created: Graduates will be computer scientists with skills in data analytics for health applications with an understanding of how to take advantage of exploiting this knowledge from a business perspective.

The Master of Science in Health and Medical Data Analytics will prepare students to succeed in this emerging field at the intersection of health informatics, data science, and digitization. A strong curriculum offered by European partner universities with expertise in these fields will address a spectrum of analytics, including data acquisition from traditional and emerging data streams, data aggregation methods, data mining algorithms, and visualisation techniques, with a focus on health and healthcare. Each partner university has its own specialisation within the 2-year program, and students will spend a portion of their studies abroad. Through required coursework in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, students will develop an understanding of ideation and business creation. Finally, students will gain hands-on, practical experience through internships provided from academic, healthcare, and industry partners offered at each of the participating universities. As this application is for the Development Year, the next step will be to apply for the EIT Label.
