Tampere University Student's Handbook
Doctoral Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (DPBMSE)
The Doctoral Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering is multidisciplinary. Our students learn to work with experts from different fields and gain an understanding of cultural disciplinary differences. The doctoral programme attracts students who are looking to utilise technology in medicine. The focus areas of the programme are biophysics, signal processing and imaging, biomaterials and tissue engineering, sensor technology and biomeasurements, health ICT and computational neuroscience. These are all rapidly evolving and growing fields of research and development in academia, industry and Finnish society. We maintain a strong international focus in our research and offer our doctoral students a diverse range of seminars and different examination options. Our students may have some lecture courses included in their previous MSc (Tech) degree counted towards their doctoral degree.
NOTICE! As of 1 August 2020, MET hosts one doctoral programme, the Doctoral Programme in Medicine, Biosciences and Biomedical Engineering. The old programmes, the Doctoral Programme in Medicine and Life Sciences and the Doctoral Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering will continue to coexist until 31 July 2024, but new students will not be admitted in them. The postgraduate students currently in the above-mentioned programmes may complete their studies according to the curricula of the programmes if they complete their degrees by 31 July 2024. When they wish, students admitted to the Doctoral Programme in Medicine and Life Sciences and the Doctoral Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering may transfer their study right to the Doctoral Programme in Medicine, Biosciences and Biomedical Technology.
