Overview (pdf)

The Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in 1985 and is the only academic institution in Greece providing undergraduate education in the field of biomedical engineering.

Studies cover the field of biomedical technology and subjects delivered concern the areas of mechanical, electrical, electronic and computer engineering, biomedical instrumentation, and medical physics. The curriculum also includes subjects in medicine, management, and economics.

Graduates find employment in biomedical industry, hospitals, and clinics, in both the public and private sectors. Graduates are in high demand and employment is rising following the trend of medical technology in Greece. About 10% of the graduates follow postgraduate studies at an M.Sc. or Ph.D. level.

Our department is involved in delivering postgraduate courses in cooperation with two Greek Universities: (a) M.Sc. on Medical Physics, with University of Patras (http://physics.med.upatras.gr/default.htm) and (b) M.Sc. on Information Technologies in Medicine and Biology, with University of Athens (http://itmb.di.uoa.gr/). A number of our graduates have also currently pursuing or have successfully received Ph.D. degrees.

Recently our department has come to agreements with european institutions under Erasmus program (see http://www.bme.teiath.gr/en_erasmus.html).
