The goal of the master study programme Radiologic technology is to qualify specialists in one of the three areas of radiologic technology.
The students deepen and broaden their knowledge in the field of research methodology, radiologic technology and higher education didactics and/or enhance their professional competence through other disciplines.
In the first semester the students acquire knowledge of research methodologies in their discipline and design the structure and disposition of their master thesis under the guidance of professionals from various fields. The second semester focuses on acquiring an in-depth knowledge of radiologic technology. In the third semester the students choose one of the elective modules (diagnostic and interventional, nuclear medicine and radiotherapeutic technologies).

The study programme has been designed in a way that the compulsory subjects enable students to upgrade basic knowledge in risk assessment and risk management and research methods, which can be applied to a particular case in one of their elected subjects and in master’s thesis.
Completion of a one-year second cycle degree study programme adds to the student’s knowledge and competencies, thus rendering them on par with European experts in the field. The programme is composed of lectures, seminars, and laboratory and field practice.
