Master's Degree Programme, 2 years

Biophysics and Medical Physics

— Specialisation
Specialising in biophysics and medical physics gives competence for starting a career as medical physicist in health care, or for applying physics in health-related industries or research.

Students will be trained in physics-based analysis of biological systems and physics-based interaction with biological systems for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Focus is on advanced imaging methods by magnetic resonance, ultrasound or use of ionising radiation (Nuclear medicine, Computed Tomography, Positron Emission Tomography), as well as on the use of ionising radiation for radiotherapy.

Admissions and course organisation are decided by the Department of Physics, NT Faculty.

Prospective students should have a Bachelor Degree in Physics including about 40 credits mathematics and statistics, 30 credits instrumentation and informatics, as well 20 credits chemistry, biochemistry and cell biology.
