Programme overview

An ageing population and rising health care costs caution us that the health care system must constantly improve. The recent COVID-19 pandemics makes this need even more evident. We have to find new effective ways to diagnose, prevent and treat diseases, and this requires innovative biomedical solutions and technologies.

Studying master’s in Biomedical Engineering at KTU, you will develop your research skills by improving existing or creating new methods and equipment for medical diagnostics, therapy and health monitoring. You will enhance your theoretical knowledge and gain the skills needed for the development and improvement of the equipment for medical diagnostics, therapy and health monitoring.

Upon completion of your studies, excellent career opportunities will open up – your knowledge and skills will be desired by the medical technology industry, medical equipment maintenance and high-tech companies, start-ups and science centres.

  • This study programme is taught together with Lithuanian University of Health Sciences to ensure comprehensive knowledge of biomedical sciences
  • You will be able to join the research groups of internationally acclaimed KTU Biomedical Engineering Institute and to contribute to the development of advanced electronic health care solutions
  • The programme is designed to incorporate medical and practical research work in laboratories
  • The majority of the curriculum is focused on the efficient application of technology in medicine
