The third (3rd) semester includes the preparation of a dissertation related to the specialty, either with a manufacturing or combination project, along with a suitable literature review.
The studies in the Postgraduate Programme aim for the teaching of the theoretical and applied technological principles in the following fields of the cognitive subject of Biomedical Technology:
- Issues of Modern Physics with applications in Biomedical Technology.
- Mathematical methods and applications in modern Biosciences.
- IT technologies in Medicine and in other Biosciences.
- Emerging Technologies in modern in-vitro Diagnostics, Molecular Biology, and Bioinformatics.
- Emerging Technologies in modern in-vivo Diagnostics, Tele-medicine and Custom-based Medicine.
- Micro and Nanotechnology in Molecular Diagnostics, in Treatment, and in Implants.
- Biomedical electronics and medical organology, biomechanics, and prosthetics
- Advanced methods for the digital signal and image processing.
- Scientific basis for the medical imaging and emerging technologies
- Large therapeutic and diagnostic facilities, security, radiation safety, and quality management
- Biomedical Technology for Health Monitoring and Nursing at Home, and Internet Management for the Provision of Health Services.
- Quality Assurance for Biomedical Technology, Industrial Property, Technical Standards, Medical Protocols, and Guidelines

Relation To Employment

The holders of the Postgraduate Diploma titled "Advanced Systems and Methods in Biomedical Technology" receive a widely interdisciplinary scope of theoretical and applied knowledge that refer to specialised cutting-edge technologies in the field of Biomedical Technology. With the theoretical and practical background acquired about the technologies and the wider knowledge and skills in the field of Biomedical Technology, they shall be able to successfully undertake roles related both to issues concerning the productive procedure, and managerial roles for taking decisions and formulating strategies, through the integration of technologies in management strategies. They shall also be able to contribute to the formulation of the future directions of the industry connected with the field of Biomedical Technology and will be able to operate within a multidisciplinary environment.


Access to this type of qualification have those who hold a Bachelor Degree (level 6). The selection of graduate students is mainly based on the following criteria: the overall grade of the Bachelor Degree, the grades in undergraduate courses that are relevant with the subjects of the Master’s program, the performance in thesis, where is foreseen at the undergraduate level and any research activity of the candidate. The detailed application of the above mentioned criteria, the definition of additional criteria or the conducting of examinations and interviews, the results of which are taken into account in the selection, are determined by decision of the relevant Department.
Holders of such qualifications gain access to study programmes at the same level or at level 8.
