Study aims

The Bioengineering study program offers university studies in the field of design and development of electronic devices and software applications applied in the field of medicine and biology. The aim of the study is to prepare biomedical engineers for work in positions in companies focused on the medical segment and in research or development teams. Graduates will gain a good basis for independent scientific work and for continuing in doctoral study programs at domestic and foreign universities. The overall goal of the study program subjects is to educate employees for positions in companies that provide development and production of electronic medical systems, devices and software development for clinical practice, to educate top experts with quality knowledge in bioengineering and applied informatics who are able to cooperate. in highly interdisciplinary teams and participate in the rapid development of technologies for medicine. The aim of the study program is also to provide a quality basis for future students of university doctoral programs focused on medical electronics, medical informatics, medical imaging and more.
 

Graduate profile

A graduate of the Bioengineering study program, he is an engineer who has a broad technical and IT basis in the areas of medical device design, artificial intelligence, cell engineering, medical imaging and biological data processing.

The graduate will be able
- work in an interdisciplinary team of doctors, biologists, computer scientists and technicians, will be very well prepared linguistically and has quality soft skills, including project activities,
- work with scientific and professional information, present and defend the results achieved,
- further educate and develop their knowledge and skills in line with the rapid development of knowledge in the field of biomedical engineering and medical informatics,
- continue further studies in doctoral study programs.

Graduates will be able to
- apply in companies that provide development, production, distribution and service of medical devices, devices and software intended for clinical practice,
- work in interdisciplinary teams of top research centers as a researcher,
- hold positions in clinical operations, hospitals, laboratories and tissue banks.

Profession characteristics

Graduates of the Master's program in Bioengineering can participate in interdisciplinary team projects together with physicians, informatics and technicians, including projects in research centers at the international level, where graduates should be able to include professional communication in English. The deep foundation and acquired skills in the field of signal and image processing and data analysis, in the design and construction of complex electronic (not only) medical systems, but also in the field of biomedical physics, will provide graduates with opportunities for wide application in practice. Graduates of the master's program will also be sufficiently theoretically prepared to work in applied and experimental research in the field of biomedical engineering, they will be able to apply in companies that provide development, production, distribution and service of medical devices, devices and software for clinical practice, but also in positions in clinical operations, hospitals, laboratories and tissue banks. Graduates will also be sufficiently prepared for continuing education in doctoral study programs.

Study plan creation

Courses are evaluated according to ECTS credits. The credit expresses an approximate weekly student's workload for the course. Credits for a given course are obtained after the prescribed completion, i.e. after awarding a credit, classified credit, or by passing an exam under the conditions of the BUT Rules of Study and Examination, the internal standard of the Rules for Organization of Studies at FEEC and the composition and content individually defined in each course.
In a two-year master study, the student must earn at least 120 credits in the specified credit composition:
100 credits in compulsory courses,
10 credits in compulsory elective (PV) courses,
10 credits in elective courses,

Obligatory courses are usually completed by the student in semesters and years as stated in the curriculum. If a student fails to complete a compulsory course in the prescribed manner, he / she must register it again in the following year of his / her studies.
Compulsory elective courses of profiling fundamentals (PVA) are field-oriented professional courses that profile the student into narrower areas of his / her interests.
Other compulsory (PVB) courses are other professional courses included in the offers of the departments of FEEC BUT. Their goal is to extend students' professional knowledge.
The student chooses to select PV courses in individual semesters so that at the end of his / her bachelor's degree he / she has at least the prescribed minimum of credits in each group of PV courses, while not obtaining the minimum number of credits in one group of PV courses cannot be compensated by exceeding the number of credits obtained in another group of PV courses.
Elective courses extend the general knowledge of students. Courses are chosen by the student himself or herself from a full-faculty offer (FEEC departments) or from the other faculties of VUT (so-called free courses) and can pass them in any year or semester of master study. Elective courses include Physical Education. If a student has not successfully completed an elective course, he / she may or may not write another academic year in the next academic year.
Students must obtain the corresponding electrotechnic qualification at the beginning of their study.

Availability for the disabled

All lecture rooms at the FEEC BUT allow disabled access; students, however, must meet the medical standards to acquire the necessary electrotechnical qualifications. In laboratory classes and practicals, students are required to independently operate measuring instruments and related equipment without endangering human health or damaging property.

What degree programme types may have preceded

The graduates may continue in a doctoral study programme.
