Language of instruction 



As part of the master level studies, in any period suitable to the student.

Learning outcomes 

1. has develop skills for being initiative, creativity, application of theoretical knowledge, programming and cooperation.


A small-scale research work in an active research group. Topics will be selected from the needs of present research activities in the site of work and the interests of student. Main emphasis is on the development and application of methods and algorithms for biomedical data processing. Often the work includes programming with Matlab, C or Java languages.

Mode of delivery 

Self-study under supervision.

Learning activities and teaching methods 

First the research group is studied to get understanding of what are its goals. Detailed task description is written with the advisor. Typically, the work includes study of theoretical background information, programming, testing and simulations, and documentation. Task assignments can be applied at any time all year round.

Target group 

Master-level students that are interested in biomedical engineering. Students of the University of Oulu.

Prerequisites and co-requisites 

The mathematic studies of the candidate degree program of computer science and engineering, or equivalent. Courses such as Biosignal processing I and II, Biomedical image processing and Machine learning are recommended. Programming skills, especially the Matlab.

Recommended optional programme components 

The course is an independent entity and does not require additional studies carried out at the same time.

Recommended or required reading 

Literature and scientific articles depending on the task assignment.

Assessment methods and criteria 

Course assessment is based on the technical report.
