Junction between technology and biomedical sciences

In Biomedical Electronics study programme, the electronics engineering sciences are coordinated with biomedical sciences by acquiring the understanding about the possibilities of electronics and its application in this field.


Good knowledge of electronics and its biomedical application and specifics

Biomedical electronics is a link between the measurement performed by the device and the measured object – human or animal. The specialist of this field connects biophysical phenomena and electronic devices to an entirety.


Wide choice of career opportunities

Wide career prospects that depend on you only – from the engineer of biomedical equipment service, equipment designer to the unique developer of biomedical product. In “Jobs Rated Report 2017: Ranking The Top 200 Jobs” overview, biomedicine engineer position is rated as 12th out of 200 jobs.


KTU develops global-scale biomedical technologies

The university provides an opportunity to contribute to the development of global scale medical technologies in the Health Telematics Science Institute (Director prof. A. Ragauskas), Biomedical Engineering Institute (Director Prof. V. Marozas), and other research groups.



Note: The duration of the part-time studies is 6 years.

A student who chooses BA+ competence, acquires the knowledge and skills in an additional study field, and discovers new career prospects.


BA+ competence blocks offered in KTU Bachelor’s study programmes can be an alternative study plan for:

  • the specialisations;
  • individual set of modules;
  • the subjects providing deeper knowledge of the study field.

Acquisition of the competence is certified by the issue of KTU certificate and entry in the diploma supplement.


Rytis Jurkonis

Head of Sector of the Medical Equipment Department of the Hospital of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences Kauno klinikos


Considerable investments have already been made in the medical equipment in Lithuania. Such investments will grow rapidly, however, the full potential of the acquired equipment is usually unused; its effectiveness and reliability are not guaranteed due to the lack of specialists of biomedical engineering. Therefore, we believe that the graduates from the KTU Biomedical Electronics programme will help to solve this problem.

Justinas Gasparovičius

Engineer at the KTU Biomedical Engineering Institute


The Bachelor’s studies of Biomedical Engineering provided me with knowledge both from electronics and biomedical field. The greatest advantage of this programme is the ideas which you can “catch”, follow, and seek to realise. Can T-shirt be an electrocardiograph at the same time or can swimming googles be smart? I realised my ideas by studying and at the same time working in the KTU Biomedical Engineering Institute. At this moment I work in startups Ovao and Figur8, Inc (Boston, USA).
