Students will engage a number of compulsory and elective curses during the first two semesters, summing uo to a total of 8 biomedical engineering subject. These provide sound preparation for the final project of the MSc, which may be carried out, either on campus or at a collaborating/affiliated institute.

This semester is dedicated to a project, supervised by an MSc staff member (permanent or visiting/invited). 
The project is an independent study undertaken by the student and results in a Master thesis (30 ECTS), capable of demonstrating the student’s ability to conduct research on a specific topic in biomedical engineering. 

Towards this end, the student is expected to:

  • Apply theoretical knowledge acquired throughout the first two semesters
  • Further advance their knowledge through original research & develop additional analytical and practical skills
  • Document their work in a scientifically sound manner
  • Defend their findings through an oral presentation

English Taught

Despite the course being taught in English, there are no particular language skill requirements and a Lower degree, or equivalent, would suffice for enrollment (students with basic English, should however be proficient in Greek). Even though the MSc is not aimed at developing your English knowledge, we expect that you’ll improve your English to an advanced level. These intangible skills will help you get ahead of other applicants on the international job market.

Part-Time Study

Out of its eighteen months of duration, the first twelve are dedicated mainly on the taught components, with lectures divided into two blocks per semester (semesters one and two), followed by exams. The final six months (third semester) are spent on a project/thesis which is assigned and supervised by one of the MSc’s Professors.
