Total 120 ECTS credits

 * The table has been made assuming that the student will execute all courses included in advanced module. At least 25 ECTS credits have to be performed from the chosen advanced module. Thus, some of the courses listed in the advanced module can be replaced by optional courses.

 

Studies include compulsory intermediate and advanced studies, advanced module’s studies and optional studies. The student executes compulsory studies (70 ECTS credits), studies of chosen advanced module (at least 25 ECTS credits) and optional studies so that the total extent of the degree is at least 120 ECTS credits. Studies are executed according to the personal study plan. Studies are executed according to individual timetable depending on the optional studies. Some of the courses are held only every second year.

 

Optional Studies (about 25 ECTS credits)

Optional studies will be executed so that the total extent of the degree is at least 120 credits. Optional studies can be chosen from other advanced module or from other intermediate and advanced studies that support the degree. In the case of optional studies, if necessary, the student must agree with the organizing department for the participation for the course. Optional studies may include practical training in the field of biomedical engineering of up to 5 credits (580121A Practical training 2).
