Master’s Degree Programme in Biomedical Technology


Biomedical technology is a multi-disciplinary field that builds on molecule-level understanding of biological systems with a goal to develop new approaches to advance medical and biotechnological applications. The two-year Master’s Degree Programme in Biomedical Technology at the University of Tampere provides multi-disciplinary education that combines natural sciences with technology with a specific focus on methods that have potential to advance human health. The programme brings together the expertise and methods in a large spectrum of natural, medical, and engineering sciences, including biology, chemistry, medicine, genetics as well as statistics, computational and data sciences. There are three options for specialization: molecular biology, cell technology, and bioinformatics.
