MAIA - Medical Imaging and Applications EMJMD

  • Master
  • Fully Funded
  • 16 February 2017

The MAIA (MedicAl Imaging and Applications) master is a 2 years’ joint master degree (120 ECTS) coordinated by the University of Girona (UdG, Spain) and with the University of Bourgogne (uB, France) and the Università degli studi di Cassino e del Lazio Meridionale (UNICLAM, Italy) as partners.

The master is structured in four semesters: in the first semester students study in uB the introductory subjects on image processing and medical imaging, in the second semester they all move to UNICLAM for acquiring knowledge on more advanced subjects in computer vision and pattern recognition. In the third semester students visit UdG for a more applied modules on computer aided diagnosis and medical applications. Finally, during the fourth semester, students develop their master thesis in any of the universities of the consortia or collaborating institutions (research centers, universities or companies) working in the field of medical imaging and its applications.

The key characteristic of the mobility scheme of the JMD is that students move in cohort from one university to the other, semester after semester. This group mobility, in contrast with option-based mobility, permits to create a sprit de corps and a true class which facilitates the belonging and integration to the master and leads to an authentic MAIA identity. Moreover, having an integrated student group further enhances the intercultural awareness and increases self-empowerment and self-esteem of its members.
