biomedical engineeringBiomedical engineers are currently in high demand so if you’re into sciences and looking for a study programme that is sure to land you a job right after you graduate, try Biomedical Engineering. The Faculty of Biomedical Engineering that belongs to the Czech Technical University in Prague, one of the largest and oldest technical universities in Europe, offers three study programmes in English you should check out.

Biomedical Technology

is a 3-year long bachelor programme that will give you a thorough knowledge of mathematics, physics and chemistry while also teaching you the basics of biology, medical terminology, anatomy and everything else you have to know in order to understand biological processes of human body.

As a future medical technician, you’re expected to study subjects such as Algorithms for biosignal processing, Biochemistry, Biomechanics and biomaterials, Biomedical data analysis, Biophotonics, Clinical laboratory instrumentation, Conventional imaging systems, Design and construction of medical devices, Detectors of ionizing radiation, Electrical measurements, Elecrophisiology, Fundamentals of pathology, Image data processing, Legislation in health care and technical standards, Mechanics, Medical devices and equipment, Microprocessors in biomedicine, Power engineering, Probability and mathematical statistics, Programming tools, Project proposal and management, Research methodology, Robotics in medicine, Virtual bioinstrumentation and many others.

Biomedical and Clinical Engineering

is a 2-year long follow-up master programme that is focused on practical training of future medical engineers who become experts in biomedical and clinical technology. Graduates are able to apply their knowledge of mathematical and scientific disciplines while keeping up to date with the current development in biomedical and clinical technology.

As a successful graduate, you’ll be capable of operating, inspecting and maintaining diagnostic and therapeutic equipment and software within various healthcare facilities. Safeguarding is of utmost importance as you’re also expected to create preventative measures to avoid possible equipment failures. If you don’t want to work in healthcare, it’s possible to find a job in a company that develops, produces and sells medical devices and creates software for healthcare diagnostic equipment.

Systematic Integration of Processes in Healthcare

is another 2-year long follow-up master programme with a different focus that combines medical knowledge with technical and economic education. It’s perfect for those interested in management positions in the healthcare sector because graduates often become health technology assessment specialists, data analysts, coordinators of clinical studies, monitors of clinical trials, pharmacoeconomic specialists but also consultants, business analysts and medical representatives.

You’ll study subjects such as Biostatistics, Business English, Design and ergonomics of medical devices, E-health and e-government, Economic analyses in healthcare, Modelling and simulations, Health technology assessment and management, Hospital information systems, Information sources in healthcare, Integrated rescue systems, Legislation in healthcare, Management of costs, human resources and medical facilities, Marketing and PR in healthcare, Medical systems and their economic dimensions, Operation research, Project management, Public healthcare, Architecture of technical equipment, Use of modern technical devices in rehabilitation and other useful subjects.

These study programmes are perfect for those who don’t wish to become physicians but they still want to work in the healthcare sector. So be sure to check them out!
