Students skills

Mastering the techniques of digital processing of biomedical signals and the skill at creative computer processing of the signals Development of competences in the field of new programming languages as a result of creation of applications in the field of biomedicine. Learning the skill to create software for healthcare institutions. Operation & Monitoring/Production control for all platforms Project management: initiating, planning, executing and closing Language skills: Java, C++, C#

Division of Modelling and Computer Simulations

Research Areas
The research in the Division is focused around 3 main issues. The most important are computer simulations of ion sources and beam formation systems including NBI (Neutral Beam Injection) systems which are used for TOKAMAK plasma heating. Research is conducted in a cooperation with Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics in Garching, Germany. Recently, the work in this field concerned modernization of the NBI systems for W7X Stellerator project in Greifswald.
