Master in Bio-Inspired Engineering

Learning from nature for engineering - that is the goal of this international Master's degree program (MSc) taught in English. Nature offers a myriad of solutions to engineering problems. Over the course of four semesters, this program focuses on the implementation of numerous nature-inspired innovations into new technologies and sustainable products and offers an exciting overview of all core areas of biomimetics.

Biomimetics is the process of utilizing natural constructions, processes, and developmental principles by transforming them into systemically engineered solutions that - without nature as a role model - we would not usually think of ourselves. While biomimetics as an interdisciplinary research field is still fairly new, it has four billion years of evolutionary mechanism optimization to show for. Considering the vast bio-cosmos' diversity and the complexity behind the necessary adaptations of systems to the environment, the tremendous potential that biomimetics has to offer to deal with the most pressing issues our society currently faces becomes evident. Through the symbiosis of a biological perspective on one hand and a natural science and engineering perspective on the other, this Master's degree program builds a cross-functional bridge founded on the graduate’s core competencies and hands-on experience....
