Biomedical Engineering and Informatics (BMII)

The program is divided into two study branches:

  • Biomedical Engineering,
  • Biomedical Informatics

that share number of lectures, namely those taught during the first year of study. The program is open to applicants who have completed a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, science or medicine and who successfully pass the entrance exam. To complete the study the student has to gain 120 credits from the subjects described by the structure of core courses of the program and core + elective subjects of the selected branch and to pass final commissional state exam. This exam consists of a thesis defence and an examination from topics covering the theoretical foundations and professional issues that are specified in the form of thematic areas, see Final state exam topics for BMEI in Downloads/Organization.

Study subjects of the program are divided into:

  • compulsory courses:
    • program core subjects (marked by the letter P), that are shared by both study branches
    • branch specific subjects (marked by the letters PO)
  • elective courses (marked by the letter V), that include e.g. courses related to economics, management and humanities, languages and physical education.

Detailed description and syllabus for each of the courses is available in the section Downloads/Organization – see Contents of the courses. Recommended time study plan, including required core courses can be found here:

Language training: the program has no mandatory language instruction. Students can enrol in two semesters of language instruction for 0 credits.

Physical education is an optional subject for which the student is entitled to get no more than 1 credit per one semester.

The basic training and testing covering Safety in Electrical Engineering 3 has to be accomplished before the beginning of the 3rd the semester of the study.

Hospital practice

Practice in a hospital is a mandatory part of the curriculum in the engineering branch of study. As a rule it takes place in some of the Prague hospitals that are equipped by the most advanced technologies, e.g. IKEM or Na Homolce during the summer. The applicants have to register by an mail to: Note: Vaccination against hepatitis B is mandatory prerequisite of the hospital practice (see mail from Mrs. Zichová). The form is downloadable here.
