Department of Biomedical Engineering and Computational Science

As of 1.1.2015 BECS was merged with BRU forming a new department of Neuroscience and Biomedical engineering, NBE. Please see for the new department.

BECS and BRU of the OVLL have reorganized to form the department of neuroscience and biomedical engineering, i.e. NBE at Aalto University School of Science. Our vision and mission will be available soon at

BECS: Multidisciplinary research on the cutting edge of three synergetic fronts

The research conducted at BECS focuses on three key areas: Biomedical Engineering and Biophysics, Computational Complex Systems and Brain and Mind. The scale of our systems of interest ranges from quantum dots to broad networks: nanosystems, molecular interactions, neurons, the brain and the heart, cognition, information technology systems and social and economic networks. We combine experimental and computational methods and develop algorithms as well as new technologies to tackle major problems in human well-being, medical diagnostics, energy, the society and the environment.
