12.03.04 Biotechnical systems and technologies

This area of instruction should appeal to those interested in researching, developing and designing biotechnical systems and technologies. Students explore: medical and biological instruments, systems and facilities; methods and techniques of biomedical research; automated biomedical data processing systems; computer-aided design and information support systems for biotechnical systems and technologies; biotechnical systems and technologies for the public health sector.
Level of education:
Bachelor’s degree
Form of training:
Full-time (daytime)
Venue of training:
Entrance exams:
— Mathematics (major)
— Russian language
— Physics/Information science and ICT
Programs, specializations:
Computer systems and techniques to process medical, biological and environmental data
Biocybernetics studies the general laws of information transfer, processing and storage in biological systems, and model the structure and behavioral patterns of living systems. Such modeling includes creation of artificial systems reproducing certain vital activities of organisms, their internal connections and relations.
The curriculum provides students with theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the development, operation and maintenance of biomedical equipment, biotechnical systems and technologies associated with the monitoring and management of living systems and maintenance of people’s working conditions.
