Info-Bionics Engineering MSc

In the last decade we have witnessed the appearance of a new branch of industry, info-bionics, which has achieved great results (gene-chips, cochlea implants for the hearing impaired, per¬sonalized medicines, neuromorphic sensing robots) within a short time, and still developing at an amazing pace. It is the encounter of two state-of the-art technologies, informatics and biotechnology.

We have set two main directions in the program. One of them comprises issues of engineering, electronics, and informatics where data processing of living organisms provide models for the engineering solutions or computational algorithms as well as methods needed to understand life better (e.g.: bioinformatics). The other direction includes procedures, instruments and devices aiding the measurement, control and operation of vital processes, which affect living organisms and the quality of human life. This program is especially important in the context of prostheses and rehabilitation. Examples included are bionic eyeglasses, leg actuation, wheel¬chair navigation or devices that facilitate invasive operations with only minor intervention.

Specializations:

  • Bionic interfaces
  • Bio-nano-measurement and imaging
