Bioimaging uncovers the details of life
Medical imaging and microscopy methods have developed rapidly during the recent years. These methods provide new type of data about the properties and functions of tissues, cells and molecules that can be utilized in biological, biomedical or tissue engineering research and diagnostics. Essential in this development is the utilization of effective image processing and image analysis methods and physics.
The major in bioimaging provides a multidisciplinary view to biomedical engineering and bioengineering by combining physics related to image formation, image-based computational modeling, and cellular and tissue image analysis.
Biomeasurements open new viewpoints
The major in biomeasurements offers an interdisciplinary viewpoint into biotechnology by combining it with new measurement technology and microsystems. The programme concentrates on biosensing with micro and biosensors. Essential issues are microfluidics, management of sample/sensor-interface, modelling and design of sensors and microsystems, understanding biosignals and their properties, electrical measurement methods, and biochemical measurement applications.
Students will attain the qualifications to work in the field of design and the development of measurements systems and biosensor products. They gain the knowledge and skills to design biomeasurement systems and evaluate their performance.
Biotechnology develops state-of-the-art solutions
The major in biotechnology provides advanced special studies for students who are interested in gaining further knowledge in an interdisciplinary environment. The courses cover matters that are directly related to the current scientific research conducted at the participating departments.
The courses emphasize molecular biotechnology and microbiology related topics, such as biological energy production and omes: genomes, interactomes, metabolomes, transcriptomes, preteomes, environomes and lipidomes. Students acquire knowledge of designing functional tools for state-of-the-art biotechnological solutions, devices and complex measurement/operation systems.
Information technology for health and biology brings deeper understanding
The crossroads of information technology, biology and medicine has been one of the fastest developing areas in science and technology during last decade. The role of information technology in health care is increasing rapidly and by now, advanced information technology has become a necessity in the analysis of medical and biological information. The goal of the analysis of, for example, medical images and signals is to understand and model the complicated underlying physiological, anatomical and biological phenomena. Application areas include drug development, automation of the diagnostics and decision making in medicine, and computer-based gene analysis.
After graduating with this major module you can contribute to people's well-being. You learn how to develop computer programs that understand biological signals and images, and how to model biological phenomena with mathematical models. This module will prepare you for working in a multidisciplinary environment and after graduation you can find a career in research, in medical product development, or as an entrepreneur.
This major is new for academic year 2013-2014. Get to know the research activities undertaken at the Department of Signal Processing.
Nanotechnology enables innovations
