The Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering provides courses on Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral levels.
Bachelor's degree programmes
At the Bachelor's level education, NBE contributes to the Degree Programme in Engineering Physics and Mathematics and Degree Programme in Bioinformation Technology. We also supervise Bachelor theses.
Master's degree programme
At the Master's level education, NBE produces two majors for the Master’s Degree Programme in Life Science Technologies:
(1) Biomedical Engineering
Objectives: Biomedical Engineering builds on a solid basis of physics and technology to characterize, monitor, image and influence biological systems. This major introduces the student to the physics of biological systems in order to efficiently measure, image, and model such systems. In addition, this major provides the basic knowledge and skills for developing novel engineering solutions for diagnostic and treatment needs in health care. The major offers excellent foundations for pursuing a career in medical technology industry or in academia.
(2) Human neuroscience and –technology
Objectives: The aim is to give the students a strong background for understanding structure and functions of human brain, brain research methods and instrumentation, as well as neurotechnologies. After completing their studies, the students have an excellent background for science career and for applying their expertise in more applied fields, e.g., in medical technology, health and wellbeing, and game technology.
Many graduate students of the Aalto SCI Doctoral Programme conduct their thesis work in the research groups of the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering.
See also Doctoral program Brain & Mind (B&M) for a multidisciplinary PhD training network. B&M connects neuroscience research groups at the University of Helsinki and Aalto University.
We have a long tradition in training researchers and supervising Doctoral theses.
