Science and Technology is a 3-year bachelor’s programme offering a broad overview of natural and exact sciences and technologies. Students have an option to choose between 3 specialisations: genetics and biotechnology; bioengineering and robotics; chemistry and materials science. After graduating from the programme, students have an option to continue studies in any natural science field or work for technology companies in Estonia and abroad.
Why study Science and Technology?
• You do not have to choose a specialisation right away: try out different fields and make your choice in the second year.
• Explore a wide range of study-related extracurricular activities, including participation in student satellite project ESTCube and the biggest synthetic biology competition in the world, iGEM, which was won by our students in 2019.
• Graduates have an option to continue studies in any natural science or work for technology companies.
Please see the programme structure in our Study Information System
Graduates of the programme are expected to contribute to the development of technology enterprises in Estonia and abroad. They are wanted in, for example, monitoring centres, various manufacturing enterprises and laboratories as technologically qualified members of the lab staff. The broad education enables to make wise, calculated decisions about continuing studies on master’s level in all natural science and technology specialisations at the University of Tartu and other top universities.
