  • Analysis and design of electronic systems;
  • Modern problems of biomedical engineering;
  • Biotechnical systems and technologies;
  • Information systems in rehabilitation;
  • Computer aided design of rehabilitation equipment.

The apprenticeship for appropriate educational-qualifying levels
Master’s program – 2 years
Post-graduate courses program – 3 years

An academic year includes 2 semesters beginning on 1st September and 10th February, winter holidays - 2 weeks, summer holidays - 2 months (July, August). Master’s Thesis defense is in June.

Educational programs of ETU "LETI" are constantly modernized, following the principle «Training through research». Graduates of our university receive new, profound knowledge and practical wotking skills.

The program is realized by the Department of Bioengineering Systems. The Head of the Master’s Program is D.Sc. in Engineering, Ph.D., Professor Zafar Yuldashev (
