Biotechnology

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

Biotechnology is a challenging area that combines science and engineering concepts. Students who pursue this educational path will likely gain knowledge in microbiology, chemistry, genetics, cell biology, bioethics, gene cloning, bioinstrumentation, bioinformatics, genomics, and biometrics.

The formal higher education system of Finland is the 7-3-2-2 pattern. The university takes two years in vocational or technical education and finally two-year pre-tertiary education. Finland also has several public as well as private universities that have enabled accessibility of higher education to students.

Vaasa city rests in the west coast of Finland. The city has over 60,000 residents and most them work in the city’s industries. Vaasa city has 3 key Universities.

Master's Programme in Biomedical Imaging

Åbo Akademi
Campus Full time 2 years August 2017 Finland Vaasa

Biomedical imaging has emerged as one of the most important technology areas in basic bioscience and biomedical research as well as in clinical medicine and translational research. The current technologies enable detailed real-time and non-invasive visualization of molecules, structures and events in cells, tissues, and whole organisms. [+]

Masters in Biotechnology in Vaasa in Finland. Degree awarded: Master of Science Annual intake: 20 Contact: bioimaging@abo.fi Website: www.abo.fi/bioimaging , www.bioimaging.fi/program/ Facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/185436748136747/ YouTube-channel: www.youtube.com/user/turkubioimaging Biomedical Imaging – more than you can imagine! The Master's Degree Programme in Biomedical Imaging trains professionals with thorough theoretical understanding and practical skills of diverse imaging methods and technologies in life sciences and biomedicine. The studies thus also provide students with strong knowledge either in cell biology, anatomy and physiology, nanomedicine or biophysics, depending on the area of imaging specialization. Students work in a highly international environment and gain excellent theoretical and practical skills in a wide range of imaging techniques and applications as well as image analysis. The courses cover for example light microscopy, advanced fluorescence techniques, super-resolution imaging techniques, PET, electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. Also an understanding of the use of multimedia in a scientific context and excellent academic writing skills are emphasized. The interdisciplinary curriculum provides students with a broad spectrum of state-of-the-art knowledge in biomedical imaging related to many different areas in cell biology and biomedicine. Programme structure Academic excellence & experience The master’s degree programme in Biomedical Imaging is built on the imaging and research strongholds of both universities in Turku: the Åbo Akademi University and the University of Turku. Both universities maintain the Turku BioImaging which is a broad-based, interdisciplinary science and infrastructure umbrella that unites bioimaging expertise in Turku, and elsewhere in Finland. Turku is especially known for its PET Centre, and the development of super-resolution STED microscopy. The winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Stefan Hell did his original discoveries on STED microscopy at the University of Turku. Turku is also a leader of the Euro-BioImaging infrastructure network which provides imaging services for European researchers. Turku has a unique, compact campus area, where the two universities and the university hospital operate to create interdisciplinary and innovative study and research environment. Research facilities include a wide array of state-of-the-art imaging technologies ranging from atomic level molecular and cellular imaging and microscopy to whole animal in vivo imaging, clinical imaging (eg. PET) and digital image analysis. Studies in bioimaging are highly research oriented and the courses are tailored to train future imaging experts in different life science areas. The Master´s Degree Programme in Biomedical Imaging is an interdisciplinary programme with a unique atmosphere where people from different countries and educational backgrounds interact and co-operate. Students are motivated to join courses, workshops and internship projects also elsewhere in Finland, in Europe and all around the world. For example, the programme has Erasmus exchange agreements with University of Pecs in Hungary and L'Institut Supérieur de BioSciences in Paris, France. Career options The interdisciplinary curriculum of the Biomedical imaging programme provides students with a broad spectrum of knowledge in biomedical imaging related to many areas in biomedicine and life sciences. The programme aims to train the future imaging and image analysis experts for the increasing demands of both imaging related basic and medical research as well as imaging core facility personnel. The programme provides excellent possibilities for career in life sciences e.g.: continue as postgraduate students to pursue career as scientist work in core facility management work in science administration nationally or internationally work in hospital research laboratory industry and industrial research work in imaging network management Admission requirements The programme is open to those who have completed a lower university degree equivalent to a Finnish B.Sc. degree (180 ECTS), in Life Sciences or in a relevant field (biomedical sciences, physics, engineering, medicine or chemistry). Applicants to the Master's degree programmes taught in English must always prove their knowledge of the English language and fulfill the general academic requirements. How to apply?
