New Master’s programmes in the Faculty of Technology
The University of Turku offers three new Master’s programmes: Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, and Health Technology. They are located in the new Faculty of Technology that started operating in the beginning of 2021.
The Health Technology programme was previously a track of the Information and Communication Technology programme, but now as its own programme it responds better to the needs of students and industry. The programme focuses on the measurement and analysis of medical data, as well as machine learning technologies and their use in health technology solutions.
The new engineering programmes equip students with a solid theoretical and practical expertise with six specialization tracks: Digital Design, Digital Manufacturing, Smart Systems in the Mechanical Engineering programme, and Health Technology Materials, Materials of Energy Technology and Modern Industrial Materials in the Materials Engineering programme.
Head of Admission Services of the University of Turku Mari Kähkönen tells that the new international programmes complement the multidisciplinary offering of the University.
– The technology field needs more experts both in Finland and globally, and our new Master's degree programmes equip students with excellent skills to work as an expert in various positions in the field. The new Faculty of Technology supports the University’s goal of building a more sustainable future through multidisciplinary research and education. At the same time, the new programme offering corresponds to the general goal of the University, and Finland, to increase the number of international talents in Finland.
