Latest Curriculum!

Apparently there were some problems during the release of the latest BME curriculum. In short: The latest curriculum was NOT published even though it was accepted by the senate.
Please find the latest curriculum here. Changes are highlighted and I strongly recommend going through it, since the new lectures will not be assigned to BME in TISS. Nevertheless, the dean of studies will approve all courses in the curriculum if you finish them during this semester!
If you have more questions please write to the student council or to Prof. Thurner.

Open Master Thesis @AIT

Dear Students,

If you are searching for a topic for your master thesis and have some background in biomedical signal processing, this might be interessting for you.

The Austrian Institute of Technology is currently offering a thesis/internship  with the topic Analysis of Pulse Wave and ECG Recordings in Mice.

For more details see Ausschreibung TU 201710 DA Murine ECG and PWA

In this regards, there are still open slots in the lecture Biosignal analysis using Matlab if you would like to improve your biomedical signal processing skills,




Open PhD position [closed]

Hi all,

The research group Biomedical Sensing of Prof. Kaniusas is currently offering a PhD position with the topic, Neurostimulation and impact of electromagnetic fields on biologic systems. You can read [1] and [2] for further information on this topic.

If you are interested and have a background of BIomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or a similar study, please feel free to contact

BME Come Together Picnic (5.7.17)

Hi beauties!

Summer weather is already here and the academic year comes to an end. Due to a great imput of one of the students, we will change the location for the next Stammtisch.

Some of our STUKO candidates will quit (Magda Fuchs, Florian Thürk) and I will go to Siberia next semester, so we want to say goodbye and invite you for this Come Together Picnic.

We will have some planes to sit on, frisbees, balls, etc. but if you have a slackline or a hula hoop, just take it as well, and bring your own food and drinks 😉

We will meet at 17:30 at U6 “Alte Donau” and go North. I will post the google coordinates when we arrive.
If you have troubles finding us you can call me 0680 318 703 8
See you soon!

Check out the Facebook Event:

BME Come Together Barbecue (9.6.17)

Hi dear collegues,

We are really sorry, for not announcing this event on our homepage. Only people who subscribe the newsletter or are in the Facebook Group were informed. So again, we are so sorry, if you would have wanted to come, this won’t happend again!

Nevertheless it was a great success, and we will continue to organise “Come Togethers” for you! The next one will be announced soon! (:



ÖH – Elections

From Tuesday, 16th of May 2017 to Thursday 18th of May 2017 you will have the opportunity to elect your student representatives. You will get at least three ballot cards:

  •  One for each student program representation.
    You can vote for 1 to 5 people, except  the geodesy programs, where you can vote for up to 3 people. Biomedical Engineering Students vote for the same student-representatives as Physics Students (Technische Physik)
  • One for your University representation (HTU), you can vote for one fraction.
  •  One for your federal level representation, you can also vote for one fraction.The voting booths are open:
    on Tuesday, 16th of May 2017: 10:00-19:00
    on Wednesday, 17th of May 2017: 09:00-19:00
    on Thursday, 18th of May 2017: 08:00-14:00

    You may find further information on how and where to vote at Short-term changes will be announced also on Facebook ( and Twitter (

    For more information about the elections and reasons to vote check the current issue of the you have at home. All degree programme non-degree programme students have the active and passive electoral right, when they have paid their students’ union (ÖH) fee by the deadline, which was the 28th of March.

    Often the words “Studienvertretung”, and “Fachschaft” be equated with each other at the TU Vienna, but there are the following differences:
    * The “Studienvertretung”  is a representative body of law  while the “Fachschaft”  is a voluntary association of dedicated students.
    * The members of the “Studienvertretung” are elected by people choice (see above) for a term of office of two years, while in the “Fachschaft” all can participate according to their interests and obligated
    * Due to this structure it is possible  that you can get more offers and support as this  legal obligated advice.
    * Currently all student program representatives are members of so called “Fachschaften”.

Disability Talent, Firmenshuttle, MedTec Summer Academy, HTU-Tanzen

Some more things you might find interesting:

  • A talent programme for students with disabilites:
  • Want to see companies from the inside? The next round of “IAESTE Firmenshuttle” starts! More information here here
  • MedTec Summer academy  – meet people from companies, work on problems in the field of medical engineering more information:
  • There’s a goup of students who meet regularly to practice ballroom dancing, everyone is welcome to join! No partners or special dance skills are required . They meet every Wednesday at 7pm or sometimes 8pm, at Zeichensaal 15, located on the third floor of the main building (AA 03 48).
