Get to know our Education Projects of 2022

Having the new year started, let us introduce you to our Education Projects of 2022!

EIT Health Germany engages learners from across society through educational programmes to enable continuous innovation in European healthcare. We bridge the gap between academia and enterprise to upskill professionals on new innovative techniques and provide the practical knowledge and inspiration learners need to deliver future innovation.

We are beyond happy to be able to present you with two projects with which we have been working for several years now.

EIT Health Master of Science in Health and Medical Data Analytics (M.Sc. HMDA)

The Master in Health and Medical Data Analytics (MSc HMDA) is a two-year programme that offers a robust education in healthcare data analytics and entrepreneurship. After experiencing innovative pedagogy, a semester abroad, and internships, graduates will have a unique multidisciplinary profile: They will be trained as computer scientists, with skills in data analytics for health applications and an understanding of how to exploit this knowledge from a business perspective.

What will students get?

Students will be connected with Medtech companies and hospitals early on in their studies – through teachers with an industry background, business collaborations in practical projects and a Master’s thesis supervised by an academic and nonacademic MedTech expert. Also, being part of the EIT Health network provides access to the biggest Medtech network in Europe and opportunities for funding business ideas through the Accelerator and Innovation Projects programmes.
