Career opportunities

Leading specialist of clinical engineering at the hospitals; work at biomedical research institutions; engineering work at high technologies companies, which develop and produce medical devices; expert-consultant at the hospitals and state regulation institutions and agencies; marketing, sales, testing and operation of medical equipment.

"Successful work at our company requires interdisciplinary knowledge and skills: technical and technologies of medical devices, as well as human physiology and communication. The ability to study independently is very important. Medical devices change and evolve very rapidly, which requires a constant interest and improvement in professional area."UAB "Graina", Director, Arūnas Padvariškis.

"Biomedical Engineering study programme provided theoretical knowledge and practical skills for a successful beginning of work at the advanced company providing and operating complex medical equipment for biochemical laboratories, ultrasonic and X-ray systems."UAB "Graina", Engineer, Vytautas Vizbara, graduate of 2014.
