Cross-disciplinary research at the interface of technology and medicine

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 programme is a part of the BioMediTech community (biomeditech.fi). 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 45% of our doctoral students and 29% of our professors come from abroad. We 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.
