Hands-on skills in the crossroads of molecular biology, cell technology and biomedical informatics

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 programme brings together expertise and methods in many fields in natural, medical, and engineering sciences: biology, chemistry, medicine, genetics, statistics, computational and data sciences.

When applying to the Master's Programme in Biomedical Technology (MSc), you may choose from the following three options:

Our target group are students with a background in biosciences, computational sciences or natural sciences who want to attain in-depth knowledge and hands-on skills in the crossroads of molecular biology, cell technology and biomedical informatics, with a special emphasis on areas that have the potential to enhance human health. The courses are firmly grounded on international research and focus on transferring this knowledge into practice.

Molecular Biology

The Molecular Biology specialization track is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge and practical skills in the field of molecular biology. The programme is ideal for individuals seeking to deepen their understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underlie biological processes both in healthy cells and in diseased state. The core courses in this programme delve into molecular genetics, genomics and proteomics, protein structure, molecular interactions, and organelle biology. Students are equipped with knowledge and skills in the molecular life sciences that make them job ready to tackle the challenges of a rapidly evolving molecular biology landscape and to contribute to scientific discovery and innovation towards a sustainable future. It prepares for careers in research and academia as well as in biotechnology, biomedicine, pharmaceutical, and healthcare industry.


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 scientific research or teaching, or in research and development.

We collaborate closely with the Finnish-taught programme and the international engineering programme in the field of biomedical sciences offered by the Faculty of Medicine and Health Technology, the Master's Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (MSc Tech), which has four specialization options:
