Bachelor/Master Thesis Miniature gear pump for medical device applications (m/w/d)

The Natural and Medical Sciences Institute (NMI) at the University of Tübingen is a non-profit research institute of the "Innovationsallianz Baden-Württemberg": the NMI performs applied research at the interface between life science and material science. A position for a Bachelor/Master thesis in Mechanical Engineering, Medical Technology, Production Technology, Mechatronic o.s., is available for an immediate start in the working group BioMEMS & Sensors Group.

Motivation and topic

The NMI performs R&D for systems and components with applications in biomedical technology. A novel cooling therapy system – MOLLICool – will enable physiologically optimal and mobile cooling therapy solutions.

In this context, a miniature gear pump is under development for applications within medical devices. In cooperation with a partner from polymer industry the NMI currently is developing a scalable fabrication technology for such a device.

Content and objective of thesis

  • CAD-Design and calculation of gear pump
  • Research of suitable materials considering production technology, durability and cost
  • Design and realization of a test system to measure pump rate, pressure, power consumption and durability of prototype devices
  • Evaluation of prototypes from additive manufacturing as well as micro injection molding


  • Education in Mechanical Engineering 
  • Medical Technology 
  • Production Technology 
  • Mechatronic or similar, with usable knowledge & experience in CAD/CAM and measurement technology

We offer

A thesis within an industrial cooperation project in biomedical technology, careful supervision in an inspiring, multi-disciplinary environment.
