Biosystems and Biomaterials Engineering

Code: CHEM3036

Extent: 20-25 cr

Language: English

Professor in charge: Alexander Frey

Target group: Students from Masters' programme in Life Science Technologies, Master's Programme in Chemical, Biochemical and Materials Engineering and other Master students with sufficient prerequisites

Application procedure: Open for all students of Aalto University.

Quotas and restrictions: Please note, that in some courses the number of participants can be limited. Then major students (Biosystems and -materials) have the priority.

Prerequisite knowledge: Attendance of the minor in Biosystems and –materials presupposes basic knowledge and competences in the disciplines of Natural Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) Also while making your studyplan, you should verify that you have the prerequisites needed for the courses.

Objectives

The minor provides an overview on biological phenomena and cellular systems, biomaterials and pharmaceutically active molecules important to the field of Life science. Students can tailor the minor according to their interests.

  1. the understanding of molecular and cellular level phenomena and the use of such knowledge for the analysis and reprogramming of cells
  2. molecular design and characterization of small pharmaceutically active molecules
  3. synthesis and characterization of biomaterials

Content and structure of the minor

The minor includes 20-25 credits of mandatory courses. Suitable courses can be selected from the list.
