MASTER IN TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION IN HEALTH (MTIH)

PRESENTATION
OF THE PROGRAM

The Master in Technological innovation in Health (MTiH) program offers a transdisciplinary approach to Biomedical Engineering. A consortium of five universities partnered to create MTiH, which provides “active learning” methods and provides innovation and entrepreneurship expertise.

Students work in multidisciplinary teams and learn to combine different technologies to solve real life health problems and to improve the quality of life of European citizens. The programme is taught in English. 

The course, which started in 2017 received the prestigious EIT Label in 2018. It uses a learning‐by‐doing curriculum to promote creativity, innovation and design thinking among students.

STRUCTURE

During the first semester students take courses at their university of enrolment.

Students complete one semester (second or third) in international mobility at one of the partner universities (courses are taught in English)

Students receive at least 30 ECTS in Innovation and Entrepreneurship courses and complete an internship – 5 months – in a company or a research laboratory. 

Duration of the programme: 1,5 year (Spain), 2 year (Portugal, France). ECTS: 90 (Spain), 120 (Portugal, France)

Students selected in the Master’s degrees receive an EIT-Health grant for the mobility semester at one of the partners’ universities.
