Master's degree studies

Students holding a Bachelor's degree from a full university in an applicable field and filling the language requirements of the faculty are considered eligible to apply. In addition, some of the departments' reqular curricula can modified inviditually to be completed fully in English

Expertise in Mathematical and Biosciences

Education given at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences is strongly based on research. The areas of expertise in Mathematical and Biosciences have also brought up eight Master’s Degree Programmes that are taught in English and aimed at both international and domestic students. Small classes allow the students to be heard and known by the teachers and enable individual guidance considering the student’s strengths and future interests. After the programme, in approximately two years, you’ll have expertise in present theories and up-to-date technologies and research methods of the field. The Finnish Master of Science degree gives eligibility for doctoral studies both in Finland and abroad.

  • The MDP in Digital Health and Life Sciences offers four different tracks: Health Technology, Medical Analytics and Health Internet-of-Things, Bioinformatics, and Molecular Systems Biology.The students graduating from this cross-disciplinary Programme will have acquired scientific and analytical skills, expertise in present theories and up-to-date technologies, as well as practical skills including teamwork, leadership, and interpersonal skills in an international environment. The acquired methodological skills and advanced knowledge allow the students to continue their career paths in academia or industry. 
  • The MDP in Embedded computing is managed together with the Åbo Akademi University. Both hardware and software aspects are covered and the programme gives a good understanding of theoretical issues as well as practical competences for challenging design tasks in the Embedded Systems Industry

  • The MDP in Food Development is designed to provide you the understanding on the connection between the composition and the quality and functions of food. The graduates of the Programme have competence to work both for the industry and at research institutes.

  • The MDP in Information Security and Cryptography focuses on two areas of information security: networked systems security, and cryptography and data security. Students of the programme gain both knowledge and hands-on experience in secure network and communication systems, secure computing systems and mathematical foundations of data security.
  • The MDP in Molecular Biotechnology and Diagnostics is focused on the key technologies of diagnostics and molecular biology with opportunities to apply this knowledge both to medical and other areas of diagnostics. The programme is part of the Master´s Degree Programmes of Biomedical Sciences organized together with the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Turku providing multidisciplinary interaction with the Drug Development and Bioimaging programmes.
