Bachelor degree program "Biomechanics and Medical Engineering"

About the program

Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics

Speciality Code: 010303 "Mechanics and Mathematical Modeling"

Supervisor: Dr. Olga S. Loboda Deputy Head of Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics

Objectives: The bachelor of science degree provides a solid background in mathematics and mechanics, advanced computational methods and information technologies; giving students essential knowledge and skills needed to solve various problems in biology.

The general concept of the educational program is based on a combination of fundamental disciplines and various courses giving an insight into the modern methods and equipment used in the field of biology and physiology, computing methods and software packages allowing to solve a wide range of interdisciplinary problems of mechanics and biology.

The level of training allows the graduates to continue their education in the magistracy or to choose other educational program.

Training requirement

Duration: 4 years for the fellowship training program.

Qualification awarded: Upon successful completion of the course, students are awarded the qualification of Bachelor of Mechanics and Mathematical Modeling.
