Duration 2 years

Programme description
  • The programme is designed to train master’s students who will be engaged in research and practical activities and apply mathematical methods, and information and digital technologies in various fields of medicine and medical diagnosis
  • The academic programme is interdisciplinary and it is at the intersection of computer science, digital technology and mathematics. During training, students study various disciplines, including: mathematical and computer modelling techniques for advanced medical diagnosis; state-of-the-art medical data processing software; fundamentals of tomographic reconstruction, 3D visualisation, and intelligent analysis of medical data; decision support systems in medicine; and Big Data and their processing. They also study the software development process
