Studies at the Silesian University of Technology
Studying at the Silesian University of Technology is an opportunity to collaborate with a number of companies willing to employ graduates from our university. The university offers its students the possibility of foreign travel scholarships to one of 100 universities in Europe. The Student Self-Government supports the students with advice and assistance, including the organization of various events: „Igry”, balls and numerous student concerts.
The Biomedical Engineering studies at the Silesian University of Technology stem from the Faculty of Automatic Control, Electronics and Computer Science where students have specialized since 1969 in domains lying on the border of technology and medicine.
It has been possible to study Biomedical Engineering at the Silesian University of Technology ever since 2007. In 2010 the first recruitment to the Biomedical Engineering studies has been conducted at the newly created Faculty of Biomedical Engineering. The first Biomedical Engineering students have already graduated (with the degree of Bachelor of Engineering Science) and most of them continue their education in postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering.
Two scientific circles are available for students under the course of studies where they are encouraged to develop projects on the basis of their own ideas.
