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 part of the larger ensemble of MSc programmes in Biomedical Sciences  which  together provide the basic courses in transferrable 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.
