The Program at a Glance
Who: Two Universities,one Research Center and one Medical Center  
Where: Heraklion and Chania,Crete  
When: Applications started! -lasting until July 10 (priority criteria apply), lectures start on September 2020  
How: A distance learning program (afternoon hours) plus an 15-day Intensive Lab training requiring physical presence  
Duration/Credits: 15 Months (90 ECTS) or 24 Months (120 ECTS)  

Our MSc Biomedical Engineering program is organized into five trimesters each lasting 8 weeks (lectures plus exams). The first trimester offers introductory courses with the purpose of homogenizing (up to certain point) the different educational backgrounds of the attending students.

Each of the second, third and fourth trimester deals with one of the three major sectors of the program. The fifth trimester is devoted to the first level thesis and to business and innovation management seminars and projects.

The minimum total duration of the degree is 15 months (90 ECTS), which may be extended to 24 months for conducting a research grade thesis. In that case the degree credits increase to 120. Our program’s curriculum is structured as follows:
