Masters (MSc)

School of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering MSc Program (BME) is a master program delivered by three collaborating Institutions in Crete, Greece:

  • the University of Crete  (Heraklion)
  • the Technical University of Crete  (Chania)
  • the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas  (Heraklion).

The program seeks to capture the global megatrends in the field of Biomedical Engineering by offering high level education in three major sectors:

  • Biofabrication, Molecular Diagnostics and Therapy Module
  • Βio-Medical Imaging
  • Medical Information Systems

BME program is flexible, offering two graduation tracks, one with 90 credits and one with 120 credits. The first track is intended to educate graduate students willing to develop a career as biomedical engineers employed by industry/hospitals. 

The second track is designed to prepare graduate students willing to continue in a Ph.D. program, through a research grade thesis conducted in one of the affiliated research labs.
