Course content

In agreement with the supervisor on the specialization project, the student selects a course on the master level (or higher) that (normally) is related to the topic of the specialization project. An alternative to an ordinary master level course of 7.5 credits would be to select module(s) of a total of 7.5 credits from the following list:
FY8408 Introduction to MRI (3.75 ECTS).
TFY1a Additional topics in MRI and PET (3.75 ECTS).
TFY4265 Biophysical Micromethods (7.5 ECTS), or either
TFY2a Light Microscopy and Optical Techniques (3.75 ECTS),
TFY2b Techniques for Single Molecule Studies (3.75 ECTS).
(It is not allowed to take both TFY2a and TFY2b, you must choose TFY 4265 instead)
FY8409 Radiation Therapy Physics (3.75 ECTS).
FY8412 Ionizing radiation - interactions and dosimetry (3.75 ECTS).

Current modules from TFY4525 Bionanotechnology, Specialization Course, can also be choosen.

Learning outcome

The course will give the student an in-depth knowledge of current interests within biophysics and medical technology. There will normally be a connection to the chosen specialization project. For further details, see the learning objectives formulated for each specific course.

Learning methods and activities

For ordinary courses, see the relevant course description. The modules are given as lectures, colloquia, laboratory courses or self studies. Teaching will be in English if students on international master programmes are attending the course.
