Please note that from the winter semester 22/23 intake on, the HMDA program is not funded by EIT Health anymore.
This means that it does not include the option to apply for an EIT Health scholarship anymore.
If you want to spend one semester abroad during your master’s study, you are welcome to apply for the Erasmus mobility program, though.
If you want to join the FAU Master’s program in „Health and Medical Data Analytics and Entrepreneurship (HMDA)“, please check the following website
“Data is the new oil”. The MSc HMDA aims to provide an innovative European program with a profound education in HMDA and hands-on entrepreneurship training. Both will be addressed from an innovative, user-centered perspective, enabling students to identify market demands and respond to them by using top-notch technical skills. The core consists of competencies in data science (acquisition, storing, pre-processing, modeling). The specializations will turn students into experts in a specific discipline, such as bioinformatics, medical signaling or knowledge extraction. They receive a state-of-the-art education in innovation and entrepreneurship tailored to healthcare, allowing them to identify opportunities and execute a project from the business perspective (value proposition canvas, stakeholder management, business plan, etc.). The HMDA core and specializations and the I&E component all share the goal of exploiting value from data in clinical and non-clinical settings.
The MSc HMDA is a cooperation between the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA), Técnico Superior de Lisboa (IST) and the Friedrich-Alexander Universitiy in Erlangen (FAU). This enables you to do online courses at all 4 Universities and take part in the EIT Summer school. Your 3rd semester can be abroad at one of the partner universities to have a full semester of mobility to focus on one of the specializations offered by our partners. All programs are aligned with a common structure, which means your academic achievements will be accredited at FAU. For your semester abroad, a mobility scholarship can be granted.
