Master's programme in Computing Sciences

In our Computing Sciences master’s programme, we offer majors taught in English and Finnish to future Masters of Science in Technology and Masters of Science in Economics and Business Administration. The English-taught major, Sustainable and Autonomous Systems is a collaborative programme with the University of Oulu. This joint effort leverages both universities' strengths in sustainable energy systems and smart, autonomous systems.
