Master’s degree programme



What is this programme?

The two-year programme is jointly administered and run by the two universities in Turku, the University of Turku and the Åbo Akademi University.

The Master´s Degree Programme in Biomedical Imaging aims to train professionals that will have a thorough understanding of diverse imaging technologies along with practical skills in a wide range of imaging methods and applications. Both Finnish and foreign students who have completed a lower university degree equivalent to a Finnish B.Sc. degree are welcome to apply for the programme. The education is given in English.

The programme has been assembled on the true imaging strongholds of Turku and comprises a truly interdisciplinary array of prominent research groups and departments spanning both basic and medical researchers to share advanced imaging techniques in

  • basic cell and molecular biology
  • in disease characterization at the molecular level
  • in patient diagnostics

As imaging is a practical science, the programme will include a large practical component, all of which are backed up with solid theoretical background knowledge.

The Biomedical Imaging programme is at the University of Turku a track in the larger ensemble of MSc programme in Biomedical Sciences which together provide the basic courses in transferable skills: languages, bioinformatics, and statistics. At Åbo Akademi University the Biomedical imaging program is part of the Department of  Biosciences  (Cell biology)  at the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
