In the crossroads of human physiology and digital technology, Health Technology invites you into a world of exciting challenges with purpose. Human sensing, big data, machine learning, and more – let’s make solutions for a better life!
The Master’s Degree Programme in Health Technology programme focuses on health and the measurement and analysis of medical data, as well as machine learning technologies and their use in health technology solutions.
The studies provide a comprehensive knowledge of how data analytics and sensor technology can be utilized in health technology. The teaching focuses on how to apply signal processing, machine learning methods, and Internet-of-Things technology for the collection and analysis of health-related data. Applications include, for example, wellness and health applications, as well as diagnostic and remote monitoring solutions.
Academic Excellence & Experience
The students graduating from this cross-disciplinary programme will have acquired scientific and analytical skills, expertise in present theories and up-to-date technologies as well as practical skills including teamwork, leadership, and interpersonal skills in an international environment. The acquired methodological skills and advanced knowledge allow the students to continue their career paths in academia or industry.
Master's Thesis & Topics
In the Master's thesis, the student must prove his/her ability to do scientific work, management of research methods, knowledge of the research field, and skill of scientific writing. The work is performed according to an accepted research plan, independently but under supervision. Thesis topics may be provided by companies, offering employment possibilities after completing the thesis. A thesis may also be completed working for one of the research groups affiliated with the university, preparing the student for a research-oriented position or for applying to doctoral studies. The possible topics cover a wide range of subjects related to health technology.
Double Degree Option
The applicants also have the possibility to apply for a double degree option, where a part of the degree studies is completed at the Fudan University, Shanghai, China. In this double degree option, during the first year, the autumn semester will be organized at Fudan University, Shanghai. The rest of the studies, the spring semester in the first year and the whole second year will be taken place at the University of Turku, Finland.
Tuition fee in the double-degree programme: Free for citizens of EU/EEA countries or Switzerland, for citizens of non-EU/EEA countries €2,000/academic year.
The programme gives interdisciplinary knowledge in health technologies and biomedical engineering both from theoretical and practical perspectives. Hence, giving the possibility for employment in different health technology sectors, ranging from wellness and sport to personalized medical solutions and computational data analytics of biomedical data.
