In 2019, four new English-taught master’s programmes are opened: Bioengineering, Sound and Visual Technology, Materials Science and Technology, and Contemporary Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.
Bioengineering: This interdisciplinary programme covers the application of biological systems and engineering calculations, and educates specialists who can contribute to the development of research-intensive industry in Estonia. The curriculum places great emphasis on the acquisition of practical skills. The graduates will have a wide range of specialisation and labour market opportunities in the sectors of industrial or medical biotechnology, environmental technology, bioeconomy, valorisation of bioresources, energy, food industry and high-technology agriculture.
Sound and Visual Technology: The curriculum includes two fields of study: sound technology and visual technology. In the course of the studies, students acquire thorough knowledge of sound or lighting design and learn the specifics of major events. Students of either specialisation may also choose courses and gain in-depth knowledge in the other field. Besides the core specialities, the students will develop competence in team management, project management and entrepreneurship, and acquire knowledge in field-specific cultural theories and terminology.
Materials Science and Technology: The materials science module provides students with an overview of the structure of matter, technologies of the synthesis of materials, research methods, applications and materials development. The entrepreneurship module gives basic knowledge of entrepreneurship and includes seminars on setting up and development of small business. Electives offer students in-depth studies in a specific field of materials science developed at the University of Tartu, or acquisition of further knowledge in economics. In the course of practical training, students work in a company or in a research laboratory to gain professional work experience. Work on the master’s thesis usually starts in the first semester, when the student chooses the supervisor and laboratory.
Contemporary Asian and Middle Eastern Studies: This interdisciplinary programme covers the economy and business, political development, demographic situation and migration in Asian and Middle Eastern countries. In the course of the studies, students learn about the culture and religion of the chosen region and analyse the impact of traditions on the present-day world. As separate themes, the programme also comprises globalisation and the contacts of Asia and Middle East with Europe, North America and other regions of the world. Special emphasis is laid on studying the language of the chosen country of region.
