Biomedical technology is a multidisciplinary field that builds on understanding biological systems on the molecular level and develops new approaches to advance medical and biotechnological applications. The Biomedical Technology program at Tampere University brings together expertise and methods in a large number of natural, medical, and engineering sciences: biology, chemistry, medicine, genetics, statistics, and computational and data sciences. There are three specialisation options:
- Molecular biology
- Cell technology
The programme offers you a unique learning environment that combines biosciences and technology with a specific focus on health. The study options are flexible and the teaching groups small. During the studies, you will build networks and interact with our world-class research teams that provide many practical training opportunities. As our graduate, you may work as an academic specialist within research or teaching, or in product development.
The programme equips students with the essential skills needed for working in the field of biomedical technology, such as project work, management skills and the ability to work in a laboratory. Our graduates have found work as academic specialists working in research or teaching, or in the field of product development, both in Finland and abroad. Some also work in sales and marketing in biomedical companies or are employed by research institutes or research funding organisations.
