The Faculty of Physics invites to join a new training course "Biomedical engineering"
By the decision of the licensing commission of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine as of June 21, 2018, a new specialism - biomedical engineering - was opened at the Faculty of Physics of Uzhhorod National University.
Graduates of secondary schools and colleges are invited to join the course. Potential entrants have to submit their EIT certificates in the Ukrainian language, biology, mathematics (or chemistry) to the Admission Committee of UzhNU. Foreigners and stateless persons can also apply.
Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary branch of science and technology that combines the science of wildlife and inanimate nature. It relies on a range of scientific and technical advances and developments in the field of physics and engineering, medicine and biology. The main task of biomedical engineering is to solve a wide range of problems that arise in the study of living objects. Biomedical engineering in the field of medicine combines designing scientific and technical developments for the implementation of effective treatment of people, including the development of technologies and technical systems for diagnosing, monitoring and treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of human diseases on the basis of the fundamental principles of molecular and cellular biology. Its sphere of interest includes: 1) creation, improvement, and research of artificial and natural biological objects, the construction of new technologies, materials and products for medical purposes; 2) molecular modeling and synthesis of chemical compounds with predefined properties (protein engineering, engineering enzymology); 3) creation of appropriate software and information technology to solve the applied and fundamental problems of biology and medicine. In non-medical aspects, biomedical engineering is closely intertwined with biotechnology.
Biomedical engineers are versatile specialists with fundamental knowledge both in the field of life sciences (biology, medicine) and natural sciences (physics, computer science, engineering). They must also have excellent engineering skills in the sphere of design, construction, manufacturing, and operation of biomedical equipment. They are able to predict the properties of medical materials, design, and manufacture of new biomaterials and medical devices. These skills include the ability to design and create artificial organs with specified properties and develop the most up-to-date biomedical technologies. All this requires the perfect knowledge of modern information technologies and the software to solve the applied and fundamental problems of biology and medicine.
