Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering

If you are interested in using technology in medicine, this course is for you!

During your studies in Biomedical Engineering, you will learn to look at the human body and all phenomena related to it through the eyes of an engineer. Biomedical engineering is currently one of the leading directions of scientific research in Europe and the United States. These are elite studies enriched with knowledge about the latest achievements in science and technology.

Studies in Biomedical Engineering will teach you how to design and manufacture modern medical apparatus, rehabilitation equipment and apply modern technologies in medicine and related fields. Rescuing and improving the quality of people's lives requires advanced devices that are commonplace in hospitals, clinics, and rehabilitation centers. Their operation requires specialist knowledge. By studying Biomedical Engineering at the Poznan University of Technology, you will be prepared to cooperate with doctors, physiotherapists, and other representatives of medical professions in the field of using advanced technical solutions in the medical environment and designing prostheses, implants, and medical devices.

The field of Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary field of study that will provide you with knowledge of the basics of mechanics, materials engineering, manufacturing techniques, elements of human anatomy and physiology, engineering biomechanics, basics of programming, medical electronics, mechatronics, basic imaging techniques and equipment used in medicine and rehabilitation.


Duration: 3,5 years (7 semesters)

210 ECTS points

Candidate’s predispositions

  • abilities and interest in mathematics, physics, and computer science, as well as biological sciences,
  • predisposition to work in laboratories,
  • desire to design and create innovative solutions,
  • potential to solve technical issues in the production field.

Studying Biomedical Engineering at Poznan University of Technology, you will gain knowledge of medical imaging techniques and learn about CAD/CAM systems used to design and manufacture medical components and devices. In addition, our teaching staff will introduce you to the subject of medical equipment, implants, and artificial organs.

Practices and internships

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Poznan University of Technology cooperates with many companies that offer the possibility of professional practice in the field of, among others: construction and purpose of specialized medical equipment, performing research and specialist tests (quality control) of available medical devices, work in design and technical departments, as well as the implementation of medical products.

As a Faculty of Mechanical Engineering student, you can pursue practice in companies such as ALVO, Bertz Medical, Medical Simulation Center UMP, ENforce Medical Technologies, Inovamed, Kimball Electronics Poland Sp. z o.o., LiNA Medical, MEDLINE, Medical Partner, Stanley - Medical Center.
