Biomedical Imaging Master’s Progamme Application period for 2022/2023

The Master’s Degree Programme in Biomedical Imaging aims to train professionals with thorough theoretical understanding and practical skills in a wíde range of imaging methods and technologies. This highly multidisciplinary and international programme is intended for students with a B.Sc. degree in the Life Sciences or applicable areas of biosciences, biomedical sciences, physics, chemistry or engineering.

After completion of the studies, the graduating M.Sc. :

  • will have has excellent theoretical and practical skills in a wide range of imaging techniques, applications and image analysis
  • will have a strong background knowledge in cellular biology, anatomy, physiology or biophysics depending on student’s interests and area of focus
  • will be trained to work in a highly international environment where students from around the world interact and co-operate
  • will understand the use of multimedia as a powerful tool of popularizing science
  • has mastered scientific writing in English
  • has excellent opportunities for postgraduate studies

Studies in the Biomedical imaging programme provide the students with an excellent basis for careers in life sciences, for example, academic or industrial research settings, product development, instrument development, diagnostics, hospital research laboratories, core facility management, and scientific administration. The programme has collaboration in the Nordic countries, Europe, USA, and Asia, and it offers courses given by international experts.

The track will cover the following subject areas:

  • Light microscopy, basic and advanced techniques
  • Electron microscopy
  • Tissue imaging and histopathology
  • Nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging
  • Tomographic imaging techniques
  • Flow-cytometry techniques and applications
  • In vivo non-invasive imaging
  • Nanotechnology
  • Fluorescent probes
  • Dye indicators and radiochemistry used in the light, microscopic and nuclear imaging modalities
  • Software development and image analysis tools
  • The use of multimedia in a scientific context

The programme is jointly administered by the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Åbo Akademi University and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Turku. Successful completion of this two-year full-time programme results in the award of a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree (Swe: Filosofie magisterexamen) 120 ECTS.
