Applied Technologies for Medical Diagnostics

Applied Technologies for Medical Diagnostics“ (ATMD) is a joint study program of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria and the University of Applied Sciences for Health Professions Upper Austria. It covers a new professional area at the intersection of engineering, natural sciences and technology-oriented health professions, neatly filling the gap between development engineering and the application of medical devices. The program provides a well-founded theoretical knowledge base in Medical Diagnostics, which is essential to project work and product management in the heavily regulated area of medical products and in-vitro diagnostics. There is a technical focus on new methods of detection and products relevant to the innovative dimensions of digitalization, new materials and bio-signal analysis. Graduates can apply their know-how in the areas of quality and risk management, clinical and performance evaluation, as well as to the development of medical products. In addition, their expertise will be in demand when new products are launched – on the market or inhouse – and for the purpose of market supervision. Ample practice in dealing with regulatory processes will be offered within the framework of practice-oriented tasks.
