Masterprogram, medicinsk bildbehandling (TMEEM), Utbildningsplan för kull HT10
Senast ändrad: 2010-03-30
In the first semester basic courses in anatomy, physiology and medical engineering are given together with mainly theoretical courses in the mathematical methods and physics of microscopy and imaging.
In the second and third semester the students choose their specialization. They can either focus on clinical imaging or biophysical imaging.
For the students who choose to focus on clinical imaging there are separate courses in all the modalities of medical imaging (ultrasound, X-ray, MRI). There is also an introductory course in medical simulation methods and a course in radiation therapy. During the third semester there is a course in safe medical devices, so that the students should gain knowledge about all the rules and regulations that is associated with medical engineering.
For those who focus on biophysical imaging there are courses in the different techniques used there, like electrodynamics, X-ray crystallography and X-ray microscopy. They also get the theoretical background through courses in structural biology, cell biology and quantum mechanics.
Both groups also take a course in image reconstruction. The third semester also contains a course in entrepreneurship, in order for the students to get an early contact with the industry and get a feeling for this particular field of engineering. There is finally a course in science theory and research methodology to prepare the students for the master’s thesis and also for possible future research in the field of medical engineering.
The last term is devoted to a degree project which is carried out in a group of two or individually. The degree project can be carried out at an industrial company, a hospital or at an institution.Study year, term, and study period descriptions can be found in the KTH Study Handbook.
Utbildningen sker i kursform. Kurslistor finns i Bilaga 1: Kurslista
För kurser på KTH används en sjugradig målrelaterad betygsskala A-F som slutbetyg för kurser på grundnivå och avancerad nivå. A-E är godkända betyg med A som högsta betyg. Betygen godkänd (P) och underkänd (F) används som slutbetyg då särskilda skäl föreligger.
Villkor för deltagande i utbildningen
A condition in order to be able to participate in the studies is that the student must enrol for the next term every spring and fall. This is done via “Mina Sidor” on KTH’s website between November 1st and 15th and between May 1st and 15th.With the enrolment, the student has submitted their intention of studying and participating in the programme.Only after that is it possible for the student to:
- register for courses
- register for the term
- get results
For studies in study year 2:At least 45 higher education credits from study year 1 must be completed by the exam period in August. Students which have not fulfilled this requirement must consult with the study counsellor and set up an individual study plan. The main goal with the study plan is that the student should complete the remaining elements during the next study year. In the study plan, the remaining elements and also suitable courses from the next study year are included. Special regard should be taken to the courses prerequisites.
The student has the possibility to apply to receive credit from courses taken at another university/higher education institution both in Sweden and from abroad. The application can be found on KTH’s website. KTH’s policy for recognition of previous academic studies can be found entirely in the KTH-Handbook.
KTH’s rules for the degree project for the Master’s degree with specialisation can be found in the KTHHandbook. Generally, the degree project work can be started only after a large portion of the studies have been completed.KTH’s rules for the degree project can be found in the KTH-Handbook KTH-Handbok 2, page 15.5 www.kth.se/info/kth-handboken/II/15/5.html
In order to graduate with the Degree of Master of Science (120 cr.), a passing grade must be achieved in all courses which are in the student’s study plan. The study plan must comprise 120 higher education credits including a degree project consisting of 30 higher education credits.
Complete information on the degree requirements can be found at the local degree policy of KTH, see http://intra.kth.se/regelverk/utbildning-forskning/grundutbildning/examina/1.27227?l=en_UK
