Biophysics

Full-time first cycle studies in Biophysics last 6 semesters (3 years), end with the defence of the diploma thesis and obtaining the Bachelor’s degree in Biophysics. The first 4 semesters of studies are common to all majors. At the end of the 4th semester, students choose one of two majors – Bioelectronics or Molecular Biophysics. Biophysics is an interdisciplinary field of study. Students acquire knowledge and skills under the so-called basic subjects: from higher mathematics (elements of mathematical analysis, algebra and geometry), experimental physics (mechanics, electricity and magnetism, optics, structure of matter), inorganic, physical and organic chemistry (special emphasis is placed on protein chemistry and biochemical processes) and biology (basics of life processes, structure, functions, development and biodiversity). At a later stage of study, subjects such as molecular biophysics, thermodynamics of biological processes, crystallochemistry, quantum chemistry, non-linear processes in biological systems, modelling processes at the molecular level, as well as microbiology, immunology or molecular genetics are proposed.
