  1. Where is the study program Biomedical Engineering and Informatics taught?

    The Master study program Biomedical Engineering and Informatics is taught at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague and is guaranteed by the Department of Cybernetics.

  2. Does there exist a most suitable Bachelor study program preceeding the study of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics?

    The Biomedical Engineering and Informatics program is relatively close to the following two Bachelor programs at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague, namely:

    • Cybernetics and Robotics (in case of Biomedical Engineering)
    • Open Informatics (in case of Biomedical Informatics)

    However it does not mean that Biomedical Engineering and Informatics accepts only graduates of the mentioned programs. On the contrary, in tha academic year 2010/2011 almost 2/3 of accepted students came from other faculties of the Czech Technical University in Prague (e.g. Faculty of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering) or other universities.

  3. Does there exist a course in Bachelor study that represents an introduction to the Biomedical Engineering and Informatics program?

    Yes, there are several Bachelor courses that contain introduction to Biomedical Engineering and Informatics, for example Introduction to Biomedical Engineering and Informatics and Fundamentals of Medical Electronics.

  4. Is it possible to be admitted for study without passing the admission examination? If yes, is there any condition linked with previous study results?

    In 2011, the applicants were invited for the admission examination from those courses listed in the requirements that:

    • are related to the specialization they chose
    • and for which they could not prove that they passed the course or its substitute.

    Recognition of the substitutes is evaluated by the admission board prior to inviting students to admission examination. At the same time the board defines requirements on grades necessary for recognition. For students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, the grades A to E will be recognized for courses listed in the requirements.

  5. What is the difference between study of Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Faculty of Biomedical Engineering?

    For comparison of study of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Faculty of Biomedical Engineering in Kladno we regard most important to stress advantages our program has thanks to close and lively cooperation in a number of theoretical and practical areas that have at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering high internationally recognized level. Thanks to that we cooperate in Biomedical Engineering and Informatics on a great number of various international projects and have long-term contacts with prestigious Czech institutions. It is natural that our students are offerred the opportunity to participate in these activities in frame of their semestral and Master projects.
