V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University (Official Site)

School of Radiophysics, Biomedical Electronics, and Computer Systems exists since 1952. Until 2014, the school was known as the School of Radiophysics. School of Radiophysics in Kharkiv was founded due to Prof. D. A. Rozhanskii who lectured at Kharkiv University in 1911–1921 years (later he became a member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR) and his disciple A. A. Slutskin (the inventor of the magnetron and first radars, and later — academician of NAS of Ukraine).

Today, School of Radiophysics, Biomedical Electronics and Computer Systems trains bachelors in applied physics and electronics (duration — 4 years), specialists in radiophysics and electronics, physical and biomedical electronics and masters of Radiophysics and Electronics in the following areas: Theoretical and Computational Radiophysics; Quantum Radiophysics; Radi-ophysical Measurements; Physical and Biomedical Electronics and Complex Information Technology; Physics of Microwaves; Space Radiophysics; Astronomy; Antennas and Propagation; as well as specialists and masters in Biological Physics on the following specializations: molecular biophysics and medical biophysics. The duration of training for specialists and masters is 2 years.

Among our graduates, there are 39 awardees of the State Prize in Science and Technology, 7 academicians and 7 corresponding members of the NAS of Ukraine, more than 120 doctors and more than 600 candidates of sciences, directors and leading specialists of academic institutions, research centers, enterprises and institutions of higher education, and well-known businessmen.

There are about 500 students and 20 Ph.D. students at the School. The educational and scientific process involves about 100 teachers and researchers, 17 of them are awardees of the State Prize of Ukraine in the field of science and technology. Among the 40 fulltime faculty staff, there are 20 full professors, doctors of sciences, and 20 associate professors, Ph.D.

The School is actively engaged in scientific work. Our research is related to the most modern problems of studying the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter. Faculty also works in the field of information technology, environment, health, space exploration, and development of biophysical techniques. We have experience of international scientific cooperation with scientific and educational institutions of the USA, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Japan, Turkey, China, and other countries.
