Bioinformatics and Bio-Inspired Engineering also known as Biomimetics or Bionics is the science and art of learning from the nature for engineering applications. Carefully look into the nature and you will see that it offers many smart solutions to engineering problems. In fact it took the nature millions of years to create optimum solutions. Now you just need a few months to learn how to adapt those solutions into an engineering problem. That is the goal of Cademix Program on Biomimetics and Bioinformatics Engineering – An international certificate program taught in English, and plans to bring all necessary knowledge and experience to you within 4 to 6 months of regular study (12 Months Part-Time). This is a perfect option for those who previously studied Interdisciplinary biology, Engineering, and seek a study abroad, study in europe, or study in Austria.

Bioinspired Engineering

The program focuses on current industrial requirements, especially in the fields of ICT, Computer Aided Technologies, Rapid Prototyping, Simulation Technologies, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), medical and health care and Energy systems. It also considers the job market and rapid implementation of numerous nature-inspired innovations into various technologies.  That’s why you may team up and work closely with other students and experts in the fields of robotics, AI, IoT, electronic engineering, energy systems, entrepreneurship, construction engineering, material science, physics, computer simulation, rapid prototyping and 3D Printing. After all, it is important to know that all these industrial segments need multidisciplinary biomimetic experts.

Finite Element Analysis Honeycomb lightweight

Europe has many organization and associations dedicated to the topic of Bioinspired engineering and biomimetics. One of these is the Association of German Engineers (VDI), which has a Technical Division Biomimetics Biomimetics. There you can find further resources, VDI Standards, and there are information related to international Bionic Award. 

The Cademix program offers a flexible and personalized syllabus so that every student in the group can choose to be an experimental biomimetic expert, a theoretical biomimetic scientist, or a computational biomimetician. You can also choose topics from the other departments. Parallel to your technical expertise, you will also improve your managerial and soft skills. The program also supports all students toward getting one or more industrial placements or paid internships, so that later you can decide to be an industrial expert, an academic researcher or an innovative entrepreneur.

Choose Two Subjects (Major + Minor)

Already decided on a major Topic? Now it’s time to think about a Second Topic – Minor! To graduate on a second topic as Minor, you need to pass at least 50% of the courses. Because of the content overlaps, you may use the same courses or similar project works to fulfill the requirements in both a major and a minor, as long as you still pass 30% of the units in the minor that have a different course topic than your major.

The right Minor for you not only allows you to earn a second certificate and broaden your career, but it also increase your employ-ability and help you find more jobs after graduation.

How to choose a Minor?

The best Advise is to choose major based on your career goals and select a complementary minor mainly based on your interests. 

The Minor adds value to your Major career path, complements it and shows the potential employers that you have multiple expertise in several fields. For example, you can major in Engineering  and minor in Project Management or Entrepreneurship. So after graduation you are well qualified to apply for a Engineering Group Leader Position or Start your own Engineering Business.

Remember with a few more courses you can always turn your minor into your second major!
