Biomedical engineering

These guys work both with technologies and medicine. For other people, they are like mad scientists. They labor with computers, wires, and chips. They can transplant gene from fish to human. It is possible for them to invent super arms or super legs. Perhaps they will think up a method to avoid death.

To be serious, biomedical engineers are very clever and creative. They are necessary for humanity. They invent useful things. Biomedical engineers make implants, prostheses, medical devices and even new sorts of vegetables. They are kind of superheroes.

You can become a cool biomedical engineer in two educational establishments of Ukraine:

Let’s compare costs and years of study.

Kharkiv National University of Radioelectronics (KNURE)

It was founded in 1962. This is the only technical university in Ukraine that offers almost all specialties related to information technologies, radio engineering, and electronics.

World’s largest catalog of space bodies was created in the university. The International Astronomical Union named one of the minor planets “KNURE” for its achievements in study near-earth space.

Applying an abroad university is a difficult process itself. Add here the requirement to sit exams with no guarantees to pass and it becomes even tougher. I personally would like to be sure that I’ll be accepted anyway. What about you?
