Individual Study Plan

The Doctoral Course consists of 60 ECTS and is structured in 9 Curricular Units (CUs):

  • CU II / CU III / CU IV / CU VI / CU VII / CU VIII
  • CU I (TRANS) / CU V (TRANS)
  • Thesis Planning

The Board of Direction of the Doctoral Program in Biomedical Engineering (PDEBIOM) engourages the students to begin their research works as early as possible. It is not intended, therefore, a rigid structure in terms of semesters or years in which each of the CUs must be performed, and some of them can be relegated to other years other than the first year of PDEBIOM attendance.

The  CU and CU TRANS curricular units are chosen by the student at the beginning of Doctoral Course attentance, within the educational offer of the University of Minho. The student should indicate which CUs he/she wants to attend, according to the following rules. This CU selection is the basis of the student's  Individual Study Plan, which must be formalized by completing the respective form availbale in Documents.

 

CU Options

According to the Director of the PDEBIOM, all curricular units listed in the dispatch DCMIEB-01/2013, as well as the curricular unit "Computational Mechanics", are available for the school year 2013/2014.

 

CU options (TRANS)

The  PDEBIOM Doctoral Course includes 2 CUs of 5 ECTS each, of the Complementary Sciences and Technologies scienfific area (TRANS), aimed at developing transversal competencies.

The organization of these  CUs is the responsability of the  Pedagogic Council of the School of Engineering of the University of Minho (CPEEUM).

 

Thesis Planning

With the objective of encouraging the start of the research works, the  Thesis Planning CU should be finished, preferably, during the first year of PDEBIOM.

Additionally, it is espected that the students request the admission to the thesis by the end of one year of PDEBIOM attendance.

Requesting the admission to the thesis requires, mandatorily, a minimum of 35 ECTS successfully finished and the  Thesis Planning CU also finished (included in these 35 ECTS).
