Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, Biomedical Micro- and Nanodevices, Master of Science (Technology)
The Master’s Degree Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering offers you an international and multidisciplinary environment to learn from the extensive expertise of worldwide recognised scientists at the faculty. This will ensure you an up-to-date transfer of knowledge – from the fundamental to the applied and from core biomedical engineering to modern biology – on a broad range of topics pertaining to applications of engineering in health and well-being.
The programme is closely organized with BioMediTech. BioMediTech is an institute that combines the unique engineering skills and the strong life sciences expertise. The aim of the institute is to create new platforms for discovery and innovations. This close collaboration with the BioMediTech institute also optimises the connection with the Tampere University Hospital. This ensures active interaction between engineers, life scientists as well as clinicians, and thus provides optimal exposure for you taking part in the MSc Degree Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering. The excellent basic and translational (from laboratory to clinic) research performed at Tampere University is recognised worldwide. This reputation has been strengthen along the Body-on-Chip Center of Excellence by the Academy of Finland.
Today, people are in need of more efficient and cost-effective implants, devices as well as health informatics solutions. The biomedical engineering industry is an increasingly important high technology area worldwide. In Finland, the health tech sector of the industry is especially strong (see http://healthtech.teknologiateollisuus.fi/). With the emergence of numerous small enterprises, the Biomedical Sciences and Engineering fields are rapidly expanding. This gives broad career perspectives for graduating students, including great possibilities for the entrepreneurs at heart to initiate start-ups. Additionally, the education interacts closely with research, which provides excellent basis to continue towards a PhD.
The major Biomedical Micro- and Nanodevices focuses on micro- and nanoscale devices and systems such as microsensors, microactuators, microrobotics, microfluidics, micro-optics as well as wireless signal and power transfer technologies. Organ-on-chip type in vitro devices provide a novel approach for developing new medicines, understanding disease mechanisms and studying toxicological effects of chemical compounds. These can only be achieved with advanced technologies such as microfluidics, micro- and biosensors, microscopy, actuators and advanced biomaterials.
Miniaturisation has been one of the important technological megatrends in the past decades. As a result, not only microprocessors but also sensors and actuators have become a part of our everyday life. This major provides you a strong background for working on these novel fields of technology and particularly utilising them in biomedical applications. The major will cover micro- and nanoscale devices and systems such as microsensors, microactuators, microrobotics, microfluidics, micro-optics as well as wireless signal and power transfer technologies.
Education in the Degree Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering is based on freedom coupled with personal responsibility. The programme is organised into modules, which partly include optional components so the degree can be customised to suit your needs. The programme is organised in this way to bring out the best of each individual. The courses include, but are not limited to, traditional lectures, group work, presentation, laboratory practice, and a small research project.
Students joining the programme will first undertake common core studies. The courses of the common core studies ensure that you will possess an adequate basic knowledge of biomedical sciences and biomedical engineering before starting your major studies. The common core studies will also include an introduction to graduate studies in Finland and Finnish language.
When applying to the programme, you will need to choose the major, and apply directly to the study option corresponding to the chosen major. You have the possibility to choose one of the following majors:
- Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering
- Biomedical Micro- and Nanodevices
- Health Technology and Informatics
If you choose Biomedical Micro- and Nanodevices, the study option to be chosen is called: Biomedical Micro- and Nanodevices, Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, Master of Science (Technology).
Through the courses in the major Biomedical Micro- and Nanodevices you will learn to design, model, simulate, test and apply microsensors, microactuators, microfluidic and soft-robotic structures and understands their physical principles and the specifications of corresponding commercial products. You will also learn how to combine microfabrication techniques with biomedical engineering for biomedical applications such as cell technologies.
No minor subject studies are required, since the major subject studies count for at least 50 credits. Instead, you will have the freedom to either choose elective courses of your choice or any offered minor. You can freely choose their elective studies or minor from Tampere University or other universities. 30 credits are granted upon completion of the Master’s thesis. The Master’s thesis research project is tailored according to your career plan. It can either pave the road to an academic career or prepare to work in industry or in hospitals.
Students who begin their studies in the Degree Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering may be required to complete complementary studies depending on their BSc degree. With the complementary studies, students will update their knowledge of mathematics, physics, economics, computer science and languages so that their knowledge is at the level of a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. In addition, prerequisite courses of the major subjects may be required. In general, the complementary studies are included in the master's degree.
