Msc.Biomedical Informatics

Czech Technical University in Prague - Faculty of Electrical Engineering
The masters study program branch Biomedical informatics aids to educate computer professionals understanding basic principals of functioning of living organisms (from molecular and cellular level up to human physiology) as well as current tasks, procedures and problems of medical care. The mandatory subjects provide the students with deep insight into the most important application domains of informatics in medicine and with reliable theoretical knowledge in informatics ? this background makes it possible for the students to take active part in one of the promising fields of research and development e.g.: Bioinformatics, Neuroinformatics, Assistive technologies and e-health systems or Medical informatics and clinical information systems. The aim of the specialization Biomedical Informatics is to educate graduates that understand both basic principles of living organisms functioning (starting from molecular and cellular level up to human physiology) and current tasks, approaches and issues of medical care. In specialization courses they acquire knowledge of most important application areas of medical informatics and at the same time they get theoretical knowledge of informatics that allow them actively participate in one of the following rapidly developing fields of research and development: bioinformatics, neuroinformatics, assistive technologies and supervisory systems, or medical informatics and clinical information systems. Each of these fields is covered by one course that explains state of art and future goals and focuses on mastering those algorithms and informatic tools, which are crucial for the given topic and its further development. One third of the curricula is represented by elective courses. Thanks to this open concept each student can complete the common fundamentals according to his/her interest in such a broad field.

Graduate profile

The graduates will be able to apply the latest information technologies and approaches to solving current problems of biology and medicine, to integration of knowledge and data interpretation from various accessible sources (from imaging modalities to e-science), to solving engineering problems, especially in the area of design and implementation of health care information systems and decision support systems. The education stresses importance of acquisition of good theoretical fundamental, system approach and ability of active cooperation in interdisciplinary teams composed of engineers and experts in life sciences (physicians, biologists, biochemists, etc.) and clinical practice.
