- Quality Management - Additional qualification
TH Lübeck is one of only a few universities in Germany where students can acquire an additional qualification in the field of quality management that is recognized throughout Europe. The additional qualification is associated with a certificate from the German Society for Quality (DGQ). It is offered at the TH Lübeck in the Department of Applied Natural Sciences, Biomedical Engineering course. Students from all departments have the opportunity to participate.
We enable students from all departments of the TH Lübeck to acquire practical action competence in the field of value-adding, process-oriented quality management. We enable students to act responsibly and goal-oriented independently and to work in teams.
We train "Lübeck value-added students" in the sense of students who create added value for their future employers: Lübeck value-added students are in a position to practically apply the tools of value-added management systems at their future workplace beyond the specialist qualification acquired with their university degree and thus to make a contribution to the sustainable success of the company that is comprehensible and recognizable for the employer. Students are already given an introduction to practical work during their studies, and this practical experience is valued by employers: Lübeck value-added students are immediately employable after their studies.
The DGQ certificate "Quality Systems Manager Junior" (QSMJ) acquired in the course of QM training at the TH Lübeck can serve as a basis for further qualification in the field of quality management. The following figure outlines the training path from QSMJ to auditor as offered by DGQ.
In the medical technology specialization, QM training consists of several modules. These include lectures with exams, seminars and group work, as well as a practical study project. Together with their university degree, students can subsequently receive the DGQ certificate "Quality Systems Manager Junior".
Students of biomedical engineering, majoring in quality management / quality and safety engineering, can acquire the additional qualification as part of their studies without additional expense.
Students of other study programs can achieve the additional qualification by completing the courses as additional, elective or compulsory elective subjects and by writing a student research project with a quality-relevant task.
In the following, you will find more detailed information on quality management in medical technology and on the courses relevant to certification. Do you still have questions? Write to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The use of medical devices enables patients to alleviate or cure their illness or even to continue to survive. Medical devices must therefore meet exceptional quality standards in terms of functionality and usability as well as safety and reliability. At the same time, they are subject to demanding legal regulations.
In order to master these challenges, manufacturers of medical devices must, in addition to their technical know-how, have a firm grasp of quality management methods and techniques and be familiar with the legal regulations. Our value-added students should provide them with the best possible support after graduation. For this reason, in addition to comprehensive knowledge in medical technology, we specifically enable students in the areas of quality management and assurance, risk management and regulatory affairs.
The courses relevant for the QSMJ certificate are essentially compulsory subjects from the curriculum of the bachelor's degree program in biomedical engineering, specialization in quality management / quality and safety engineering.
The following successfully passed courses, together with the DGQ student research project (usually in combination with the final thesis) lead to the acquisition of the QSMJ certificate:
- Fundamentals of Quality Management I (Lecture - 2 SWS)
- Fundamentals of Quality Management II (lecture, practical course - 4 SWS)
- Communication and Moderation (Lecture - 2 SWS)
- Product Audit (Lecture, Project - 3 SWS)
- QM for Products/ Statistical Methods (Lecture, Practical - 3 SWS)
- Risk Management/ Reliability and Safety Analysis (Lecture - 4 SWS)
- System and Process Audit (Lecture, Practical - 2 SWS)
- Total Quality Management (Lecture - 2 SWS)
In order to be able to offer students the "Quality Systems Manager Junior" qualification, universities must apply to DGQ on their own initiative under the leadership of a university teacher. If the application is successful, DGQ will appoint the university teacher as a so-called BLH representative at his or her university (BLH = Advisory Board of DGQ for Teaching at Universities).
Prof. Wang is the BLH representative at the TH Lübeck and supervises together with the DGQ tutors (qm-zusatzqualifikation(at)th-luebeck.de) the offer of the additional qualification.
