Biotechnology

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Biotechnology refers to products and technology that are based on biomolecular and cellular processes. Students studying in this field may take classes such as molecular and cell biology, genetics, immunology, anatomy and physiology, physics, chemistry, and microbiology.

The formal higher education system of Finland is the 7-3-2-2 pattern. The university takes two years in vocational or technical education and finally two-year pre-tertiary education. Finland also has several public as well as private universities that have enabled accessibility of higher education to students.

Master's Programme in Biomedical Imaging

Åbo Akademi
Campus Full time August 2017 Finland Turku Vaasa + 1 more

Biomedical imaging has emerged as one of the most important technology areas in basic bioscience and biomedical research as well as in clinical medicine and translational research. The current technologies enable detailed real-time and non-invasive visualization of molecules, structures and events in cells, tissues, and whole organisms. [+]

Best Masters in Biotechnology in Finland. Degree awarded: Master of Science Annual intake: 20 Contact: bioimaging@abo.fi Website: www.abo.fi/bioimaging , www.bioimaging.fi/program/ Facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/185436748136747/ YouTube-channel: www.youtube.com/user/turkubioimaging Biomedical Imaging – more than you can imagine! The Master's Degree Programme in Biomedical Imaging trains professionals with thorough theoretical understanding and practical skills of diverse imaging methods and technologies in life sciences and biomedicine. The studies thus also provide students with strong knowledge either in cell biology, anatomy and physiology, nanomedicine or biophysics, depending on the area of imaging specialization. Students work in a highly international environment and gain excellent theoretical and practical skills in a wide range of imaging techniques and applications as well as image analysis. The courses cover for example light microscopy, advanced fluorescence techniques, super-resolution imaging techniques, PET, electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. Also an understanding of the use of multimedia in a scientific context and excellent academic writing skills are emphasized. The interdisciplinary curriculum provides students with a broad spectrum of state-of-the-art knowledge in biomedical imaging related to many different areas in cell biology and biomedicine. Programme structure Academic excellence & experience The master’s degree programme in Biomedical Imaging is built on the imaging and research strongholds of both universities in Turku: the Åbo Akademi University and the University of Turku. Both universities maintain the Turku BioImaging which is a broad-based, interdisciplinary science and infrastructure umbrella that unites bioimaging expertise in Turku, and elsewhere in Finland. Turku is especially known for its PET Centre, and the development of super-resolution... [-]

Master in Protein Science and Biotechnology

University of Oulu
Campus Full time September 2017 Finland Oulu

The MSc degree programme meets the clear needs of academia and industry in the post genomic era. This degree is specifically aimed at giving students in-depth understanding of the structure-function relationship of proteins and the techniques used to produce and characterize them. [+]

Master in Protein Science and Biotechnology Watch a video of the International Master's programme in protein Science and Biotechnology, where our students tell about the programme, and studying and living in Oulu. The MSc degree programme meets the clear needs of academia and industry in the post genomic era. This degree is specifically aimed at giving students in-depth understanding of the structure-function relationship of proteins and the techniques used to produce and characterize them. Students who are selected for the degree will undertake 120 ECTS study points (equivalent of two years) of studies. These studies maximise hands on individual training in modern state of the art techniques and methodologies while providing a solid groundwork in theoretical aspects of the field. Around half of the degree involves integration of students into different research groups, finally cumulating in a 6 month research project. The degree is flexible and allows the students to specialize in the aspects of protein science and biotechnology which will most benefit their future career. The programme is particularly aimed at people going into research and former students have been very successful in finding PhD positions in Finland and abroad. The degree is taught in the highly international Faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine. The faculty brings together expertise in in vitro, in vivo and in silico analysis of protein structure and function and includes national centers for protein biophysical and structural analysis as well as a national Centre of Excellence in Cell Extracellular Matrix Research.
