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 Biomaterials Engineering) 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.
The minor provides an overview on biological phenomena and cellular systems. It provides students a sound understanding of biological phenomena from the single molecule level to the complexity of cellular organisms. A central topic is how cells can be analyzed and reprogrammed.
