Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Master of Science (Technology)


The Master’s Degree Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering offers you an international and multidisciplinary environment where you are taught by our faculty's internationally recognised scientists. This ensure you access to the latest knowledge – from fundamental to applied and from core biomedical engineering to modern biology – on a broad range of topics pertaining to the health and wellbeing applications of engineering. 

The degree programme is implemented in collaboration with BioMediTech. BioMediTech is an institute that combines a unique set of engineering skills with strong expertise in life sciences. The aim of the institute is to create new platforms for discovery and innovations. Our connection with BioMediTech also means close collaboration with Tampere University Hospital. This ensures active interaction between engineers, life scientists and clinicians, and thus provides optimal exposure for students enrolled in the degree programme. The excellent fundamental and translational (from laboratory to clinic) research performed at Tampere University is recognised worldwide. This reputation has been further strengthened by the Centre of Excellence in Body-on-Chip Research appointed by the Academy of Finland.  

The need for more efficient and cost-effective implants, devices and health informatics solutions is growing. The biomedical engineering industry is an increasingly important high-tech sector worldwide. In Finland, the health tech sector of the industry is especially strong (see With the emergence of numerous small enterprises, the fields of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering are rapidly expanding. This ensures broad career options for our graduates and excellent opportunities for those who are keen to pursue entrepreneurship. In addition, our research is closely integrated with teaching, which provides an excellent foundation for our graduates who continue towards a PhD. 

Students who select Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering as a major acquire broad knowledge of biomaterials and tissue engineering and related fields, such as cell technologies, biophysics and regenerative medicine. This expertise is essential for the development of several medical applications, such as implant design, disease modeling and novel transplantation therapies aiming for tissue replacement or repair. The major explores different aspects of stem cell technology, scaffold design and tissue functionality as well as clinical outcomes and regulations. Our students develop the expertise to become independent experts in industry or academia.  

Koulutuksen sisältö

The Master's Degree Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering is based on freedom coupled with personal responsibility. The programme is organised into modules, which also include optional components that allow you to customise your degree to suit your needs. This is to bring out the best in each student. The studies include, for example, conventional lectures, group work, presentations, laboratory assignments, and a small research project. 

Students who join the programme will first undertake common basic studies to ensure that they possess adequate basic knowledge of biomedical sciences and biomedical engineering before starting their major studies. The basic studies also include an introduction to graduate studies in Finland and the Finnish language. 

When applying for admission to the programme, you need to choose a major and apply directly to the study option corresponding to your chosen major. You can choose one of the following majors: 

  • Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering 
  • Biomedical Micro- and Nanodevices 
  • Health Technology and Informatics 

If you choose Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, the study option to be chosen is called: Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, Master of Science (Technology). 

The courses available in the major Biomaterials and Tissue Engineeringshed light on the roles of cells, biomaterials, biophysical and chemical signals and growth factors in tissue engineering. You will also develop an understanding of the ethical and legal considerations of tissue-engineered products in clinical use. 

No minor subject studies are required, as the major subject studies carry at least 50 credits. Instead, you have the freedom to either choose elective courses or any of the available minors. You can freely choose your elective studies or minor from the options offered by Tampere University or other universities. The master's thesis carries 30 credits. Your master’s thesis project is tailored according to your career plan. It can either pave your way to an academic career or prepare you to work in industry or a hospital.  

Students who enrol in the Master's Degree Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering may be required to take complementary studies depending on their BSc degree. With the complementary studies, students deepen their knowledge of mathematics, physics, economics, computer science and languages, so that their knowledge is at the level of a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. In addition, prerequisite courses may be required before starting your major studies. In general, the complementary studies are counted towards your master's degree.  


Koulutukseen haetaan Tampereen yliopiston kansainvälisten maisteriohjelmien haussa.
