Bioengineering in Health Sciences is intended for graduates from different faculties, who wish to devote themselves to research and/or ingeneering in the field of health sciences.
The contents include study of mechanisms of health maintenance in connection to the impact of the environment, new materials and new procedures. The impact of the environment includes solving problems of ecological engineering, design of ecosystem services, cleaning of poluted water, use of ecotechnologies, assessment of the quality of water, soil and air, biocompatibility of materials for prostheses and orthoses, effects of photocatalytic materials and materials used for laboratory equipment in research and clinical medicine. The interactions of nanostructured surfaces which play an important role are also considered. Further, the subject of this field is design and production of microfluidic devices and lab-on-chip systems, and their use in bioanalytics of bioprocesses, in development and in production of pharmaceuticals, and in diagnostics. Also the subject of the study is elaboration of biomechanical models of locomotor system, thereforom derived planning of operations based on prediction of biomechanical parameters and optimization of shape and implementation of prostheses and orthoses. The subject of Bioengineering in Health Sciences is any impact on health which can be considered by scientific methods. The field is therefore suitable for those who wish to contribute to health maintenance, treatment of diseases and preventive measures by the use of scientific methods. Bioengineering in Health Sciences promotes life and environment-friendly methods and high ethical standards.
