Technoethics awarded study programme of the year

The Bundesverband der Fernstudienanbieter (Federal Association of Distance Learning Provider) has named the certificate programme Technoethics of the Distance and Independent Studies Center as the study programme of the year. For more than 35 years, this annual study award has honoured outstanding and innovative study programmes.

The two-semester distance learning programme offers, among other things, content on the responsible use of technical innovations. Students learn the necessary skills and competencies to understand ethical issues and problems with technical innovations to be able to independently express an opinion on them.

The distance learning programme is aimed at those interested in the fields of natural sciences and engineering, health management, medicine, medical informatics, medical IT consulting and systems management, as well as healthcare, and is recognized by the Akademie für ärztliche Fortbildung in Rheinland-Pfalz (Academy for Continuing Medical Education in Rhineland-Palatinate) as a continuing education event.
