Pääaine suomeksi: Translationaalinen tekniikka

Huvudämne på svenska: Translationell teknik


Translational engineering is a multidisciplinary major dealing with ubiquitous electronics and microsystems from health care and medical technology to “smart everything” at workplace and home. The major provides the student interdisciplinary knowledge from microtechnologies, new materials, and ICT. Translational engineering also emphasizes the process of transferring results from fundamental studies into innovations and functional products. There are four study paths within the major, which are (I) Health and Wellbeing, (II) Smart System Integration, (III) Smart Living Environment, and (IV) Measurement Science and Technology. Students will be well-prepared to pursue doctoral studies.

Upon completion of the Major, the student will be able to:

  • translate the application needs into technical requirements;
  • understand the design and fabrication principles of electronic devices and systems;
  • command the tools needed in the development of product innovations;
  • design new devices, for example, in the fields of bioelectronics and smart systems;
  • understand in depth one of the focus areas (health and wellbeing, smart system integration, smart living environment or measurement science and technology)
