Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Biomedical Sciences and Engineering

Tampere University

Biomedical Sciences and Engineering combines engineering with life sciences

People's need for more tailored and cost-efficient implants, devices and health informatics solutions is growing.

The biomedical engineering industry is an increasingly important, global high-tech sector. In Finland, the HealthTech industry is especially strong. With the emergence of numerous small enterprises, the fields of biomedical sciences and engineering are rapidly expanding and offer diverse career options. This programme provides you with a solid understanding of the challenges related to biomedical and health sciences. You will become familar with advanced technologies at the interface between engineering and health sciences and have the ability to develop innovative solutions to solve these challenges. You will be able to demonstrate critical thinking and professionalism and pursue a career in industry, a hospital or continue your studies towards a doctoral degree. You may also be a natural-born entrepreneur and launch your own start-up. 

We maintain close ties with engineering professionals, life scientists and clinicians, and therefore provide optimal exposure for our students. We enjoy an international reputation for our excellent fundamental and translational (from laboratory to clinic) research. When applying to the programme, you may choose from the following options: Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Health Technology and Informatics, or Biomedical Micro- and Nanodevices.

I have gained a lot of hands-on lab experience in both organic synthesis of soft biomaterials but also stem cell work and nanoparticle drug delivery projects. I hope to be a coauthor of two journal articles from my work. I have also been given a lot of independence in lab and have been able to run my own projects related to my master's thesis topic

Tampere is definitely a student-friendly city! Everybody speaks English so the language barrier is not a problem and more importantly, people are very pleasant. Finnish people are very discrete but in heart, they are always here for you, and that's very surprising and awesome at the same time.
