1. Introduction


1.1 General characteristics of Medical engineering and physics sciences

Study program “Medical engineering and physics” is comparatively young in Europe.

The program’s implementation in technical universities is connected with hot-tempered development of medical technique manufacturing. For the first time the programs of that ilk had been discussed in Europe in 1995 at international scientific conference “Medical Radiation Physics” in Budapest but in 1999 RTU coordinated European Tempus project “S_JEP-12402-97” – “Baltic Biomedical Engineering and Physics MSc courses”

Medical engineering is formed up to unify two dynamic professions – engineering and medicine. The responsibility of medical engineering specialists is related with implementation in practice of medical equipment and instruments.

Biomedical engineers and medical physicists using several physical principles (electrical, mechanical and optical ect.) can deeply understand biological (human and animals) systems. These specialists can design and produce equipment and systems, the using of which can control physiological function of organisms. These equipments are unalienable components for diagnostic and treatment of diseases.

Medical engineering contains several disciplines as:

  • Biomechanics, that contains integrated static and flow studies of physiological systems;

  • Biomaterials, that is related to development of bioimplantant materials design and manufacturing

  • Physiological modeling, simulation and control, where the using of computer modeling have involved perception of correlation of physiological processes;

  • Biosensors, that comprise fixation of biological processes and its transformation into electrical signals;

  • Biomedical equipment that develops the measurements and observations of physiological processes involving to biosensors.

  • The medical and biological analysis that contains determination, classification and analyzing of bioelectric signals;

  • Rehabilitation engineering, that related to creation and evolving of therapeutical and rehabilitical equipment and procedures;

  • Prostheses and artificial organs, those creation and development for substitution or restoration of body function;

  • Medical informatics, that point is processing of data acquired from patient, interpretation of results and establishing of clinical diagnosis;

  • Imaging in medicine what comprise imaging to graphic display of anatomical structures and physiological functions;

  • Biotechnologies and tissue engineering to create and modify biological materials for medicinal purpose;

  • Clinical engineering that contains design, installation and servicing of clinical equipment, instruments and systems.

  • Medical micro – and nano technology etc.

Medical physics is inwrought with radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, diagnostic radiology and radiation protection in medicine. Using a great many legislations of physics, medical physics explain biological effect of radiation to human body.

From above-mentioned consequent the way of biomedical engineer is wide:

  • Research in new materials for implanted artificial organs;

  • Development of new diagnostic instruments for blood analysis;

  • Computer modeling of the function of the human heart;

  • Writing software for analysis of medical research data;

  • Analysis of medical device hazards for safety and efficacy;

  • Development of new diagnostic imaging systems;

  • Design of telemetry systems for patient monitoring;

  • Design of biomedical sensors for measurement of human physiologic systems variables;

  • Development of expert systems for diagnosis of diseases;

  • Design of closed-loop control systems for drug administration;

  • Modeling of the physiologic systems of the human body;

  • Design of instrumentation for sports medicine;

  • Development of material to be used as replacement for human skin;

  • Development of new dental materials;

  • Design of communication aids for the handicapped etc.

For those specialists specific education is indispensable.

RTU is the first university in Latvia and Baltic States, which initiates a study program in medical engineering and physics in order to obtain the second level professional higher education. The copies of RTU registration as an education institution certificates are given in annex..


1.2 The place of the program in RTU, information about creator of the program


Professional bachelor studying program “Medical engineering and physics” is established in accordance with State Standard of Second Level Professional Higher Education, The law for higher educational institutions, and the act of Senate Nr. 467 RTU 29.04.02.

RTU today is the only educational institution in Latvia, as well as Baltic States that crams professional bachelor in medical physics, graduate engineer qualification of medical physical technologies. The above-mentioned program has been licensed in December of 2002. 2003 / 2004. Professional bachelor program takes place for the first time and for the first year 8 students have entered.

Studying program “Medical engineering and physics” has been realized in RTU Faculty of Transport and Mechanical Engineering, Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Nanotechnologies, cooperation with Riga Stradins University, their academic personal.

For formation of this program the following RTU institutions participated:

  1. Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Nanotechnologies (BINI), director professor Dr.habil.phys., LSA corresponding member J. Dekhtyar (Conductor of studying programs “Medical engineering and physics”);

  2. Institute of Mechanics director professor Dr.habil.sc.ing., LSA corresponding member J. Viba;

  3. Division of Mechanics of Prostheses (DMP), head professor Dr.sc.ing. J. Djukendjiev;

  4. Institute of radio electronics (IR), director Dr.habil.sc.ing. J.Jankovskis;

  5. Division of image processing and computer graphics (DIPCG), head professor Dr. habil.sc.ing A. Glazs;

  6. Division of Biomaterials and Biomechanics, head professor, Dr.habil.sc.ing., LSA academic I. Knets

  7. Division of Economics of Production and entrepreneurship, head prof. Dr.oec.. K. Didenko;

  8. Division of Organization of production and entrepreneurship (DOPE); head asoc.prof. Dr.oec. J.Zvanitajs;

The above-mentioned institutions function according to RTU Constituent and studying work move according to the law of higher educational institutions.

Theoretical basic course in medicine is provides by teaching staff from Riga Stradins University Departments of Normal physiology, Anatomy and histology:

  1. Professor Dr.habil.med. Liga Aberberga -Augshkalna,

  2. Professor Dr.hab.med. Haralds Jansons;
  1. Docent Dr. med. Leons Blumfelds.



The study programs of all above-mentioned RTU institutes, divisions and departments are accredited that indicates to quality of work:
