Studies

Computer Sciences

From hands-on innovation projects to theoretical aspects of computer sciences
  • Faculty of Natural Sciences
  • Level of studies: Bachelor/Master/Doctor
  • Language of Instruction: Finnish, English
  • Credits: 5-10 ECTS / course unit
  • Current teaching timetables

There are three Master's degree programmes given in English in Computer Sciences. In order to participate in their course units, exchange students need to have the course unit prerequisites, which vary from course unit to course unit.

The Master's degree programme in Human-Technology Interactive (now in the Faculty of Communication Sciences) is interdisciplinary but still requires some background in Computer Science. The Master's degree programme in Software Development and the Master's degree programme in Computational Big Data Analytics require a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science.

In addition to the Master level course units, there are some introductory and Bachelor level course units taught in English. The range of course units taught in English changes yearly.
