The interdisciplinary and application-oriented Master of Science program "Biomedical Engineering" is assigned to the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Bern, and is offered in close cooperation with the Bern University of Applied Sciences.

Engineering graduates from both universities and universities of applied sciences may join this international program in English. Successful students acquire a full-fledged university master’s degree which allows them to continue their education towards a PhD degree. Career prospects in both industrial and academic environments are excellent.

Individual academic requirements

The following academic qualifications are required for admission to the specialized master’s degree program in Biomedical Engineering (mono):

Bachelor's degree from a Swiss university or a Swiss university of applied sciences in one of the following branches of studies:

  a Electrical Engineering
  b Computer Science
  c Mechanical Engineering
  d Microtechnology
  e Physics
  f Computational Science
  g A comparable field of study

Applications supported by a degree not listed under points a - e or with an international degree are also possible. In cases such as these, admission is based on individual achievement, taking into account your existing knowledge and achievements.

Additional attainments of up to 30 ECTS credits may be required which must be fulfilled in order to complete the master's degree program. The ECTS credits will be listed separately in the diploma supplement as extracurricular attainments.

If you are applying with an international degree, you must also take a GRE test.

The degree used for assessment purposes may not be more than five years old. Exceptions are possible where justified.

  • Curriculum vitae in table form with uninterrupted chronology of your education and academic studies up to the present incl. up-to-date passport photo (45 mm high by 35 mm wide)
  • Motivation letter (incl. family name, given name, full address, e-mail address, date and signature and – if you have one – mobile phone number)
  • If you are holding a bachelor degree's: Originally certified photocopies of your degree (e.g. diploma and diploma supplement). The correspondence of the photocopy to the original must be officially certified.
  • Originals (stamped and signed) or originally certified photocopies of all official proofs of your achievements (transcripts) with grades/scores
  • Grading system of the degree issuing university, if the grading system is different from ours. Our scale goes from 1 to 6, with 6 being excellent and grades below 4 being unsatisfactory.
  • Brief description of the content/learning objectives of the different courses/lectures (annotated course catalog or module handbook)
  • Originally certified translations of the original documents (e.g. diploma, diploma supplement, bachelor's or master's degree, transcripts of diploma records), if these are not written in German, English, French or Italian. These translations have to be inseparably connected with the originally certified photocopies of the original documents.
  • GRE General Test score (only the results of the test part “Quantitative Reasoning” are relevant for admission)
  • Photocopy of your valid passport or identity card
  • Application fee: CHF 105
