Master’s degree in biofabrication

Biofabrication is a rapidly growing research area that utilizes automated processes to generate functional biological tissues. It is a strongly interdisciplinary field combining engineering, material science and biology. In many cases, additive manufacturing is a key element to generate tissue analogues for applications like personalized tissue model systems for drug screening or improved therapies.
The University of Würzburg was one of the first locations worldwide to offer a specialized Master´s program focusing on Biofabrication and the structure of the Master´s degree was designed in a way that represents the interdisciplinary character of Biofabrication with a focus on material science. The courses within the degree cover a spectrum of different disciplines and help the students to connect to other study courses within the faculty of chemistry and pharmacy. Individualized specialization and strengthening of practical expertise are ensured via the research internships.

Materials for Future: Funktionswerkstoffe

Functional materials are found in many objects of everyday life. They are applied in devices like MP3 players, game consoles, contact lenses and implants. They convert light into electricity (solar cells) or vice versa electricity into light (LED), tilt the screen view in smart phones, trigger airbags (gsensor) or indicate an active substance in the blood (medical rapid test). The Functional Materials program is a consecutive Bachelor/Master course of studies.
