A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.
A student of bioengineering learns about the various principles of engineering as they relate to biology and biomedicine. Applications of bioengineering include engineered organs, bacteria designed to produce specific chemicals, and compact diagnostic devices.

The Master's Programme in Biorefineries is delivered as flexible distance learning independent of place or time. It is well suited for people already in the working world in Finland or abroad, aiming for professional development and the upgrading of qualifications. This programme is a practical solution to practical lifelong learning. [+]
The sustainable production of energy, food, chemicals and materials is a major challenge today and for the future generations.
The production has until now been based on fossil raw materials but this has, in turn, caused very serious environmental challenges.
The use of renewable raw materials where it is technically possible and economically feasible is one of the corner technologies for mitigating climate change and saving scarce natural resources.
Biorefineries cover a wide range of technologies and materials, and this programme examines these issues with an open mind and with a wide scope on not only technologies but also on the opportunities they offer in terms of new competencies, solutions and critical assessments. In this Master's programme, you will specialise in biorefining and related industries or e.g. in the circular economy.... [-]

Learning from nature for engineering - that is the goal of this international Master's degree program (MSc) taught in English. Nature offers a myriad of solutions to engineering problems. [+]
Learning from nature for engineering - that is the goal of this international Master's degree program (MSc) taught in English. Nature offers a myriad of solutions to engineering problems. Over the course of four semesters, this program focuses on the implementation of numerous nature-inspired innovations into new technologies and sustainable products and offers an exciting overview of all core areas of biomimetics.
Biomimetics is the process of utilizing natural constructions, processes, and developmental principles by transforming them into systemically engineered solutions that - without nature as a role model - we would not usually think of ourselves. While biomimetics as an interdisciplinary research field is still fairly new, it has four billion years of evolutionary mechanism optimization to show for. Considering the vast bio-cosmos' diversity and the complexity behind the necessary adaptations of systems to the environment, the tremendous potential that biomimetics has to offer to deal with the most pressing issues our society currently faces becomes evident. Through the symbiosis of a biological perspective on one hand and a natural science and engineering perspective on the other, this Master's degree program builds a cross-functional bridge founded on the graduate’s core competencies and hands-on experience....
