Master of Science

Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine



Graduates from Universities in relevant Engineering, Sciences or Health Sciences disciplines (e.g. Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Biotechnology, (Bio)informatics, Nursing and other relevant disciplines) are eligible, upon selection, provided that they meet all the necessary requirements for successful attendance of the courses. The program is open to graduates of domestic institutions or equivalent foreign institutions recognized by the Hellenic National Academic Recognition and Information Center - NARIC (DOATAP), according to Law 4957/2022.

For the academic year 2024-2025, a maximum of 40 students will be selected and enrolled in the M.Sc. program.

Application Material

  1. Copy of all university degrees/diplomas received. Candidates who have graduated from foreign universities will post their degrees and official transcript. The relevant check will then be carried out according to criteria of the law 4957/2022 and the National Registry of Foreign Recognized Academic Title Types (DOATAP). In case of a university degree/diploma that has not yet been conferred but is about to be awarded, the candidate should submit a statement accompanied with letters from the university personnel that indicate (i) what degree requirements are pending and (ii) that the degree can be fully completed by the period of October 2024.
  2. Copy of transcripts of grades from all previous Universities attended (in Greek or English). Accepted candidates must submit official transcripts.
  3. Certificate of Proficiency in English (at least level B2), as evidenced by a degree from an English-speaking country's Educational Body or a Certificate of Proficiency in English (Toefl, IELTS, University of Michigan, University of Cambridge, a National Certificate of Language Proficiency, etc.). If selected for an interview, candidates will be expected to demonstrate a solid knowledge of the English language.
  4. Two Letters of Recommendation. Letters of recommendation must be submitted electronically through the Online Application platform (see Application Process below). Within the application candidates will be asked to provide the name, institution, and email address for each of the desired recommenders. For the majority of candidates this means two references from academic staff at their previous institution(s) who have taught them at degree level, and who, preferably, can comment on subjects or skills relevant to the M.Sc. program. If the candidate has been out of higher education for more than four years, they can provide a professional reference instead.
  5. Resume/CV in English (max. 2 pages), which will include all information about the candidate’s education, research or professional activity and interests.
  6. One-page personal statement in English, which will state the candidate’s reasons and motives to apply to the specific M.Sc. Program in relation to his/her interests.
  7. Evidence of research experience (if any). Candidates may submit copies of journal or conference publications and/or a one-page summary of their undergraduate research thesis in English (pdf).
  8. A photocopy of both sides of the candidate’s identity card (ID) or passport (pdf).
