Profile

This branch of study aims to educate MSc graduates oriented towards the inter-disciplinary area of biomedical and ecological applications of electronics and cybernetics. The graduates are competent in theoretical and practical aspects of general electronic engineering and are familiar with the specifics of applications in biomedical, clinical and ecological engineering. Apart from general and specialized technical courses in the area of electronics and cybernetics, students complete a comprehensive set of biomedical and ecological courses taught by significant medical doctors, biophysics and environmentalists. Students acquire a profound knowledge of instrumentation and measurement technology, processing and analysis of measurement data, signals and images and also artificial intelligence applied in order to solve complex, fuzzy problems typical of humanities. Within specialized courses, students are introduced to diagnostic technology for medical and ecological applications, specialized imaging systems, therapeutic, prosthetic and laboratory technology, the principles of design of technical systems in health care, ecology and other non-technical disciplines. Moreover, they acquire user-oriented knowledge of the application of information systems in health care and ecology. Thanks to a broad scope of generally-applicable study ensuring high adaptability, graduates may assume positions in diverse areas of light-current electrical engineering, electronics and cybernetics. The inter-disciplinary character of the study and stays in clinical and ecological institutions facilitate efficient communication with medical and ecology specialists. In all these areas, the graduates can assume higher executive and management positions.

Key learning outcomes

A graduate gains wide, generally applicable knowledge of the area of instrumentation and measurement technology, processing of measurement data, signals and images, and also on artificial intelligence as applied to solving complex and fuzzy problems, typical for the humanities area. In the specialised courses, he will become acquinted with diagnostic technology for medical and ecological applications, with specialised imaging systems, with therapeutical, prothetical and laboratory technology, with the design principles of technical systems for health-care, environmetal and other non-technically oriented areas. He will also gain a solid user-oriented knowledge on information technology as used in health-care and environmental systems.
Owing to wide fundamentals ensuring high adaptability, the graduates of the brach can take jobs in different areas of electronics, instrumentation, cybernetics and applied informatics. Moreover, their interdisciplinary study and stays at clinical and ecological institutions enable them effective communication with medical and environmental specialists. They are able to apply and exploit effectively the modern computing, measuring and automation technology.
Graduates of the branch og biomedical and ecological engineering can utilise the obtained specialised knowledge namely when being employed in health-care institutions (hospitals, clinics, research institutes), in medical technology industry, and in institution, responsible for diagnosis and protection of environment. Nevertheless, the wide fundamentals of the study enable them to perform jobs even outside of the mentioned area, as electronics engineers oriented towards instrumentation, measurement and microprocessor technology and towards exploitation of information technology. In all of these branches they are capable of working also as higher technical managers.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

Student acquire a broad generally-applicable knowledge of instrumentation and measurement technology, processing and analysis of measurement data, signals and images, and artificial intelligence applied in order to solve complex and fuzzy problems typical of humanities. Within specialized courses, students are introduced to diagnostic technology for medical and ecological applications, specialized imaging systems, therapeutic, prosthetic and laboratory technology, the principles of design of technical systems for health care, ecology and other non-technical disciplines.
Moreover, they acquire user-oriented knowledge of the application of information systems in health care and ecology. Thanks to a broad scope of generally-applicable study ensuring high adaptability, graduates may assume positions in diverse areas of light-current electrical engineering, electronics and cybernetics. The inter-disciplinary character of the study and stays in clinical and ecological institutions facilitate efficient communication with medical and ecology specialists. The graduates of biomedical and ecological engineering apply their specialized knowledge working in health care (hospitals, clinics, research institutes), in companies manufacturing medical technology, in institutions ensuring diagnostics and protection of the environment. A broad scope of study enables them to work also outside this area, as electronics engineers oriented towards instrumentation, measurement and microprocessor technology and information technology. In all these areas, the graduates may also assume executive and management positions.
