Goals of study

Study branch Biomedical Engineer prepares, as part of a study program Biomedical and Clinical Technology, mainly practically oriented graduates as well as future students of the follow-up doctoral study programs at FBME CTU but also at other universities in the Czech Republic and abroad.

The graduate of the master study program will have knowledge of biomedical and clinical technology mainly in the following areas:

  • Theory, methods, and procedures of signal and image processing; Therapeutic and diagnostic devices; Legal, economic and managerial issues in health care.

Application of mathematical and scientific disciplines in biomedical engineering will enable further development and deepening of the graduate's professional profile in line with current development in biomedical and clinical technology.

Profile of the study program graduate

Graduates with a biomedical engineer qualification are able to operate, inspect and maintain diagnostic and therapeutic equipment and software within the healthcare facility, including assistance to physicians during the examination of patients. They are able to provide activities related to the registration and operation of medical equipment, to evaluate cases of failure and to create concepts of preventative measures against these failures. Graduates can participate in the acquisition of medical diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, including specification of requirements and carrying out tenders. They are able to train technical staff in the field of medical diagnostics and therapeutic techniques and work safety. Given the ability to engage in developmental and scientific research work, especially of an experimental nature, graduates can also find jobs in companies and institutions involved in the development, production, sale, and servicing of medical devices, or creation of software for diagnostic and therapeutic devices and methods intended for health care.
