Department of Biomedical Engineering and Computational Science BECS


BECS develops and maintains courses that are based on its areas of strength. At the moment we offer major and minor subjects in three engineering degree programmes: Bioinformation Technology, Engineering Physics and Mathematics, and Computer Science and Engineering.

Courses offered by BECS are also included in the Electonics and Electrical Engineering degree programme. In addition, BECS co-organizes (in collaboration with the Brain Research Unit of O.V. Lounasmaa Laboratory) the new master's degree programme Brain and Mind beginning in fall 2012.

Current announcements

  • Announcement (Jun 19, 2012): Registration for examinations obligatory at all Aalto schools

    Registration for examinations (examinations, interim examinations and interim tests) announced in WebOodi will become obligatory at all Aalto University schools. Registration shall be done no later than one week before the examination via WebOodi. Students who wish to have their examination questions in another language (usually English, Swedish, Finnish) than the language of instruction of the course may request them from the teacher-in-charge of the course two weeks before the examination at the lastest. At Aalto ECON, the examination questions are available only in the language of instruction of the course. The list of students registered for the examination is checked before the start of the examination, and only the registered students are let in the examination hall. In large examinations, everyone may be let in the examination hall and the registration checked after the examination; in such cases the examination papers of those not registered for the examination will not be corrected. Students cannot negotiate other examination practices with teachers. This practice will enter into force at the start of the first evaluation period of the academic year 2012-2013 (from 27 August 2012 to 8 September 2012).
