Biomedical Engineering MSc (Tech)

Other Tasks When the Thesis Is Ready

You also need to attend the maturity test, and return all university library books, as well as keys, equipment, machinery, and tools belonging to the university.

The last event in your M.Sc. studies is the graduation ceremony (Publiikki) where you will receive the degree certificate. You are supposed to dress formal black and you can have two guests. You will get an Alumni Pin. You can register for the ceremony while applying for a degree in the OSAT system. 

For now there are no graduation ceremonies because of Covid pandemic. 

Feedback Questionnaire for those about to graduate and already graduated students

Please answer the Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland organization (TEK) survey:

The data will be used to develop The Master's Degree Program in Biomedical Engineering. Thank you in advance for your feedback! 

Note. if you want to complete the courses after graduation, you should apply for the complementary study right while applying for the degree in the OSAT system. 

You can only study supplementary studies free of charge if you apply for supplementary studies at the time of graduation. If you apply later for the right to study, the courses are often subject to a fee (open university studies or non-degree studies).

The Graduation day is the last day of each month, regardless of the day of the week. Master's theses are evaluated at the Degree programme committee meetings, which schedules are specific in every degree programme. Graduates can participate a Diploma Conferment Ceremony that follows the graduation day. The diploma is available at the Academic Affairs Service Point at the next Diploma Conferment Ceremony day that follows graduation. Learn more about Diploma Conferment Ceremony

What to consider before graduation?


1. Check your PSP (no later than 2 months before graduation, preferably before starting the Master’s thesis)

Make sure that the studies attached to your PSP correspond to the studies to be included in your degree. If there have been any changes to your studies since the last approved PSP, make the changes and approve your PSP by your tutor teacher. You need an approved PSP as the appendix to the diploma application.
 

2. Make an diploma application in the OSAT-system (no later than one week before the graduation date, which is always the last day of the month)

At this stage, the study credits in accordance with the approved PSP must be registered in WebOodi, including the Master’s thesis and the maturity test.      

  • Attach an approved PSP to the application in pdf-format.
  • For questions about the study modules and the studies to be included in the degree, you can refer to the PSP you attach.
  • Answer the question related to the delivery of the diploma: 1. pick-up from Academic Affairs Service Point 2. by post or 3. at the Diploma Conferment Ceremony.

If your diploma application needs to be supplemented, you will be contacted by Academic Affairs Service Point. Your degree will appear compiled in WebOodi on the day of the graduation (exceptions on 31th of July and 31th of December).


3. Answer the TEK Graduate Feedback Survey for 2020 graduates - Thank you in advance for your feedback!


If necessary, contact the Academic affairs of the Faculty of Technology study.technology (at) oulu.fi.
