Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
Master’s degree program at UAS Technikum Wien
Close to Research and Highly Topical
Artificial production of biological tissues and regenerative medicine are the focus of this research-oriented degree program that combines biology, medicine, and engineering.
Students are introduced to two new fields of biomedical science: The goal is to replace defective parts in the human body, on the one hand, and to stimulate the body’s own processes for regeneration, on the other. The possibility of producing usable, natural human tissue such as skin, muscles or bones in the laboratory is one of the great challenges of medicine. International research and development of new therapies in these areas is booming. Students benefit from a close connection to current research.

„You can’t get more practical experience than that, and that’s the be-all and end-all for further career advancement in academia.“
„I build my muscles in a test tube instead of in the gym, and you?“
„Students learn, for example, how to handle cell cultures and ways to grow tissue in the laboratory.“
Optional Double Degree Program
The program is also offered as a double degree program in cooperation with the Experimental and Medical Biosciences master’s degree program at Linköping University (LiU) in Sweden. Students of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine master’s degree program who are accepted into the double degree program study at UAS Technikum Wien the first year and at Linköping University the second year. After successfully completing the program, they receive two academic degrees.
What are the Admission Requirements?
Master’s degree programs build on a completed bachelor’s degree program and serve to deepen or specialize or expand existing competencies.
The admission requirement for the Master’s program in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine is a completed UAS Bachelor’s degree in a relevant subject or the completion of an equivalent degree at a recognized domestic or foreign post-secondary educational institution (at least 180 ECTS credits).
If the equivalence is basically given and only individual supplements to the full equivalence are missing, the head of the study program is entitled to combine the determination of equivalence with the requirement of examinations to be taken during the respective master’s program.
