Neuroengineering is an emerging interdisciplinary field that aims to translate findings in neuroscience to real-world practical engineering applications. The successful development of neuro-inspired technical approaches will lead to a new generation of smart systems which achieve complex functions in an efficient manner. Examples are neuro-prostheses, neuro-rehabilitation devices, medical diagnostics, as well as next-generation computing technologies and autonomous systems. Neuroengineering creates new and potentially groundbreaking technology as well as significant societal impact and requires responsibility that is based on ethics and philosophical considerations.

The Elite Graduate Program in Neuroengineering (MSNE) trains open-minded, international, high-performing students to become leaders in this novel interdisciplinary area. The overall goal of the study program is to educate and to train students in the area between engineering and neuroscience; thereby providing knowledge and skills, and broadening their mind, to envision and to create innovative neuro-inspired systems. MSNE provides students with a unique knowledge and skill set, individualized by mentor-approved electives, complemented by hands-on practicals, internships, early-career training for independent research (e.g. project design, or presentation and debating skills), and awareness of ethical aspects and societal acceptance of neuro-technology. The MSNE program offers exclusive interdisciplinary education with integrated soft-skills training (e.g. science-communication, entrepreneurship, leadership), so that graduates can better serve the growing academic, economical and societal demand. The MSNE graduates will benefit from a unique training combination of engineering and neuroscience, supplemented by in-depth knowledge about societal needs, impact, and expectations of Neuroengineering.
