The technical field, with its various disciplines, is a highly specialized one and particularly so in particular in healthcare institutions. The future-oriented concept of this generalist education for technicians aims to provide technology and facility-oriented managers with the know-how to be able to pose the “right” questions and make the best decisions in their areas of responsibility with respect to patient-oriented environmental conditions.

In the face of global developments in healthcare and limited available resources, technicians with special professional expertise in technical management of high-tech facilities confront challenging future tasks.
These include planning, tendering, construction supervision, commissioning, maintenance, and technical operation of buildings, technical and medical facilities and equipment.

As a rule, technical managers in a healthcare facility, authorities, planners and service providers work together with an interdisciplinary managing team and the commercial, medical and care department heads; their tasks are an important responsibility at the interface of core processes in healthcare institutions.

Course objectives

The university course imparts, on the one hand, basic management skills and healthcare methods; on the other hand, it provides a complete overview of the technical and related areas from a generalist perspective, as well as the legal, economic, medical and hygiene requirements. The goal is to make course participants competent in transferring and applying the management methods they have learned in the “technology in healthcare” work environment.



Due to its inter-professional approach, the university course provides numerous opportunities for communicating with other experts and networking, facilitated in particular by the “wandering academy”, and excursions.
