Biomedical engineering

Biomedical engineering is situated on the border of technical, medical and biological sciences. The main issues that it covers are medical informatics, bioinformatics, medical imaging, image processing, telemedicine, physiological signal processing, biomechanics, biomaterials, 3D modelling and biomedical optics. Graduates of this field of study are sought after to work in companies producing medical equipment and apparatus, as well as in hospitals and clinics. One can also work in research and scientific units, as well as in enterprises where medical equipment is sold. As part of the studies, the student gains knowledge not only in electronic medical apparatus and programming, but also biophysics and biochemistry, anatomy and physiology, medical imaging techniques and implantology. At the end of the second year of first-cycle studies, students choose the major: Computer Science in Medical Imaging, Biomaterial Engineering, Information Systems in Biomedical Mechatronics.

As part of the study programme of biomedical engineering, the second-cycle full-time studies are conducted in majors: modelling and simulation of biomedical systems, imaging and modelling of materials for biomedical applications.
