Master of Science in Medical Technology (International Program)
- Degree Designation
The Master of Science in Medical Technology programme (International Programme) is to encourage those medical technologists who require progressing their academic knowledge and new technology in the fields of medical technology, general and medical sciences in order to solve the public health problems and improve quality of life of the people.
The goals of M.Sc. in Medical Technology are to encourage the students for admiring knowledge achievement, self-study and research in the broad areas of medical and biological sciences. The faculty has a broad spectrum of expertise and provides training opportunities in a wide range of disciplines. These include hematology, clinical microbiology, virology, immunology, clinical biochemistry, host-parasite interactions, free radicals in biology, regulation of gene expression, molecular biology, medical laboratory equipment and imaging technology.
Graduates from this programme should be able to :
1. apply the given knowledge and technology to improve and develope their achievement in medical technology and related sciences,
2. organize the preventive plan and problems solving for both scientific and administrative management concerning clinical laboratory services,
3. search and create research works in order to develop better clinical laboratory services,
4. transfer and exchange the academic knowledge and skills in medical technology and related sciences with others.
The curriculum structures are specified as Plan A (1) and Plan A (2). Plan A (1) is the curriculum for M.Sc. by research work only, whereas both course work and research work are required for Plan A (2).
Plan A (1) credits
Plan A (2) credits
(*) The student has to participate with no credits in the course MTID 602 Seminar and other courses according to the suggestion of advisor.
English is used as the medium in all activities ie: examinations, thesis writing and defending.
