The ABIOM study program enables students to acquire knowledge of chemistry, biochemistry, physics, information technology, biophysics, chemical technology, nanotechnology and materials engineering. The course harmoniously combines science and technology, both in basic and specialist subjects.

ABIOM students acquire knowledge and skills in the field of the design, synthesis and analysis, using the latest research techniques, biomaterials and bioinspired materials. They also learn about their disposal and their impact on the environment. Students also gain practical knowledge from experimental classes as well as from computer modelling. In the field of engineering, they learn about basic processes taking place in the life cycle of devices, objects and technical systems used in the synthesis and analysis of the properties of modern materials inspired by nature. These materials are dedicated to innovative medical applications, printed electronics, controlled drug delivery systems, self-organising systems, etc.

Learning outcomes assume that students have the ability to solve problems independently, including engineering problems related to the subject of biomaterials, the ability to work in a group, including international teams and the ability to communicate with specialists from various disciplines (including: medicine, materials engineering, biology, biochemistry).
