Graduates will receive a diploma on a successful completion of higher education in the field of “Computer Science in Medicine” in a selected specialisation and a professional title of engineer.

IT management systems in medicine
The graduate is a specialist in the scope of analysing, designing, and managing IT management systems in medicine. They have advanced knowledge in the field of computer science (particularly in low-level and high-level programming, IT systems architecture, and advanced data analysis) and are able to use it effectively in the area of IT management systems in medicine. They have extensive knowledge on cost management and efficiency of systems in medicine. The graduate has advanced knowledge on models of processes in medicine, managing hospital medical supplies, managing healthcare systems, system integration and inter-operability in medicine. They learn about elements of systems theory and management. They are able to create data warehouses within specialised design environments. They learn specialized IT systems for managing such companies as: Oracle, IFS, SAS Institute, etc. The graduate is also acquainted with computer simulation methods, expert systems and neural networks.

Medical diagnostics engineering
The graduate is a specialist in the scope of analysing medical data, diagnostics systems, and supporting decision-making in medicine. They have advanced knowledge in the field of computer science (particularly in low-level and high-level programming, IT systems architecture, and advanced data analysis) and are able to use it effectively in the area of designing computer aided medical diagnostics and therapy systems. The graduate has advanced knowledge on computer systems to aid medical decision-making, modelling medical processes and patterns, analysing medical technology quality, processing data on medical events, mobile medical monitoring systems, medical data integration, medical image processing, use of computer simulation in medicine. The graduate is familiar with the operating principles of modern medical diagnostics equipment in use, as well as the methods and techniques of effective processing of medical data generated by this equipment.
