Medical Device Regulation (MDR)

The Medical Device Regulation seminar (Summer Semester 2024) will open for registration in March 2024:

In order to introduce a medical device into the market, it is essential not only to have the technical knowledge of the production process but also the rules and regulations of the entire product life cycle. The Profile Center Medical Engineering (FAU MT) offers the opportunity to learn more about the regulatory requirements of medical devices for European and international markets with the help of specialists from academia and industry.

Please note that the seminar “Medical Device Regulation” is taught only in English.
