Biomedical Materials Industries

Biomedical materials are various organic and inorganic substances designed for manufacturing various medical devices (instruments) or their components. These materials can be synthesized or derived from natural resources and are processed to ensure their suitability for use in complex biological systems.

Two-field first cycle degree program Biomedical Materials Industries is intended to acquire the integrated competencies in natural resource technologies and chemical sciences necessary for the research, design and development of biomedical materials and their sustainable production technologies, with a critical approach to their applicability and impact towards the society and the environment.

This unique study program is designed for those interested in the science of biomaterials, chemistry, biology, biomedicine, and advanced technologies.
