The MSc in Biomedical Engineering of UOWM, is geared towards graduate students pursuing a career within, or in support of the medical sector e.g. preoperative planning, medical instrumentation, pharmaceutics, bio-informatics etc.
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.
Classes within this MSc are taught in blocks. Classes will typically meet once or twice per week (over weekends), for five to thirteen hours, thus each spanning over 52 hours in total. There are two seven-week blocks during each semester. Block I, starts on the first week of the semester, while Block II starts on the 8th week of the semester with a reading week in-between.
Despite courses being predominantly taught on-campus, all classes are web-enhanced, using distant learning techniques. A limited number of PCs, dedicated to this MSc are available on campus, but students should secure regular access to a computer and the internet for the duration of their semesters. Please contact us at if this poses a challenge for you, so we can help you find a suiting solution.
