Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine

Translational Engineering is the process of translating engineering research findings and discoveries into innovations and functional products. Applications of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine focus on the development of devices and services to improve the public and individual health.

The international M.Sc. in Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine, organized by the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in collaboration with the School of Mechanical Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), is designed to prepare students to pioneer the transformation of innovative technologies into commercial devices and services with a significant socioeconomic impact in the field of Health. The program builds on NTUA’s decades of foundational work in biomedical engineering and science and focuses on cultivating deep knowledge and catalyzing interdisciplinary efforts to address urgent healthcare challenges.

Starting in the 2022-2023 academic year, the program is offered full-time and includes two semesters of coursework and one semester of Master thesis research. The instruction language of the program is English. The maximum study period is two years. To earn the M.Sc. degree, students must: [a] attend and successfully pass 7 compulsory and 5 elective courses, corresponding to a total of 60 credits (30 per semester) and [b] complete and successfully defend their M.Sc. thesis (30 credits).

The Master program is taught by faculty from NTUA and collaborating universities and research centers. Distinguished guest speakers from industry, the clinical sector, and regulatory authorities are also invited to deliver lectures and interact with students. Through a strategic collaboration with Columbia University and the support of the Bodossakis Foundation, students are offered internship opportunities at collaborating Columbia University labs.
