Biomedical Technology, Master of Science
The aim of the programme is to equip students with capabilities for expert tasks in the various fields of application of biotechnology (research, teaching, administration, product development, marketing) in both the public and private sectors, in Finland and abroad. The education implements a multidisciplinary approach. Multi-modal teaching methods support the achievement of the content objectives of the degree. Students also have the opportunity to pursue a part of their studies abroad at partner universities.
On completion of the Master’s degree, students will have
- a profound understanding of the field of biomedical technology
- expertise in the scientific methods and their application in their field of specialisation
- the capability to apply scientific knowledge in the field of biosciences
- good written and oral communication skills and an ability for multidisciplinary scientific interaction
- the ability to work as an academic expert in one’s own field of expertise
- the capability to undertake scientific postgraduate and research training
The Master’s Degree Programme (MDP) in Biomedical Technology is intended for students with a Bachelor’s degree in biological, computational or mathematical sciences who want to attain in-depth knowledge and hands-on skills in the crossroads of molecular biology, cell technology and bioinformatics with a focus on human health. The programme is open for applications from both Finnish and international applicants.
Biomedical technology is a multidisciplinary field that builds on molecule-level understanding of biological systems with a goal to develop new approaches to advance medical and biotechnological applications. The Master’s Degree Programme in Biomedical Technology at Tampere University provides multi-disciplinary education that combines natural sciences with technology, with a specific focus on methods that have potential to enhance human health. The programme brings together the expertise and methods of a wide range of natural, medical, and engineering sciences, including biology, chemistry, medicine, genetics, as well as statistics, computational, and data sciences. There are three options for specialisation:
- molecular biology
- cell technology
The programme uses several means of ensuring high quality. The head of the programme is in charge of ensuring the quality of education. The main elements used to ensure the quality of studies are the well-organised curriculum and teaching plan. The students are involved in quality assurance through active participation in the planning of the curriculum. Feedback from students is systematically and regularly collected for both individual courses and larger study units and is used in curriculum development work.
The degree provides the student with skills that can be utilised in various positions as an academic expert, for example in research and development either in Finland or abroad. You may also choose to continue your studies towards a doctoral degree.
