Study program Biomedical Technology prepares mainly practically oriented graduates but due to the necessity of a deep theoretical background, it also prepares future students of the follow-up master study programs, especially Biomedical Engineering, at the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague but also at other universities in the Czech Republic and abroad. The students acquire theoretical and practical knowledge of mathematics, physics and chemistry, but also basic knowledge of biology, medical terminology, anatomy and human physiology, electrophysiology and pathology which are necessary for understanding basic biological processes in human organism. These are also indispensable for communication with physicians and other medical staff. The students are also acquainted with professional issues, which are focused on mastering the principles of operation and use of medical technology, devices and medical informatics and the ability to effectively work with them. Students become familiar with the applicable legislation, economics and management of medical devices.

They will be able to inspect and maintain instrumentation, including metrology, to keep its records, to carry out activities connected with the operation of medical technology and hospital information systems, to assess failure cases and to prepare the preventative measures, to operate the diagnostic software, participate in acquisition of medical devices including tenders, design medical technology kits and instruct technical staff concerning operation of medical technology and safety at work. These activities, which are closely related to the Biomedical Technicican profession in the health care facilities, are linked to the applicable legislation in this area as well. Given the ability to engage in research and development, especially of an experimental nature, graduates will also be able to find employment in research institutes, as well as in companies involved in the development, production, certification, sale and servicing of medical equipment, or build-up of programs for medical equipment. Employment within the government institutions is also possible.
