Structure

Τhe mission of the proposed master program in Biomedical Engineering of the Cyprus University of Technology is to perform cutting-edge research, to educate future leaders in a wide range of biomedical science, to create graduates who are well trained in the fundamental sciences of Biomedical engineering, experienced in troubleshooting, and especially able to learn analytical tools needed for life sciences.

The biomedical engineering program is an important science because quantitative methods of engineering and science systems play a central role in the diagnosis, treatment, and design of medical systems.

The biomedical engineering program will develop and promote the science of biomedical engineering through innovative research and education aimed at the full integration of engineering methods into the mainstream of health care.

The biomedical engineering program will be the main source of discoveries and proper education by strengthening key academic, industrial and clinical bonds, and thus achieving a significant impact on health care.

Graduate students will come from a variety of academic backgrounds, ranging from electrical engineers, physicists, mechanical engineers and biochemists. The program consists of professors of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Information Technology and Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering. It is necessary that the program is composed of different fields to solve difficult biological problems. The engineering faculties conduct research that is interdisciplinary.

The proposed Master's program is aimed at high-level training in the field of Biomedical Engineering. The program is designed to meet current and future needs of Cypriot industry. This is achieved by in-depth study and deepening in advanced topics biomaterials, signal processing, medical imaging and therapeutic devices.

At the same time, students will specialize in areas of biomedical technology by preparing Master thesis, under the supervision of academic staff of the school. Graduates will be able to respond to current technological challenges in biomedical engineering and to continue their studies at the doctoral level.

Faculties and researchers from various departments of the CUT will be connected to the program and can be mentors for students.

Admission

Applicants must have an accredited University degree, awarded by an accredited institution in the country where it operates, or a degree evaluated as equivalent to University degree by the Cyprus Council for the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications (KYSATS). Undergraduate students that are about to graduate can apply for a master’s programme, considering that they expect to receive their University degree before the commencement of the master’s programme.

Applications (early) should be submitted electronically, using the online application system of the University, Student Portal by the 31st of March of 2019.

However, late applications will be assessed depending on availability in each programme.

The following documents are required to be submitted, with the applications:

  • A copy of a valid passport or Civil ID.
  • A Curriculum Vitae (C.V.)
  • Copies of University degrees or a confirmation letter which states that the candidate is expected to graduate before he/she starts the postgraduate programme.
  • Copies of Academic Transcripts
  • A brief Personal Statement of goals and research interests (approximately 500 words) in which the candidate explains why he/she wishes to pursue a graduate programme at CUT.
  • Any other certificates and documents, such as samples of relevant academic or professional work (publications, articles, portfolios etc.) according to the internal rules of graduate studies of each Department where the application is submitted.
