Science and Engineering is a Master's degree programme in the Faculty of Natural Sciences. The faculty consists of four departments: Chemistry and Bioengineering, Mathematics, Physics, and Optoeletronics Research Center (ORC). There is a high competence in theoretical, mathematical, and computational modelling. Currently there are three majors in the Master's programme of Science and Engineering fully given in English: Avanced Engineering Physics, Mathematics with Applications and Theoretical Computer Science. The focus areas offer the uniquely useful combination of advanced physics, strong mathematical modelling and tools of logical and algorithmic analysis.
Our education is based on freedom coupled with personal responsibility. The programme is organized into modules which each include optional components so the degree can be customized to suit the needs of individual students.
As most of our teaching staff also conduct research, the education is coupled with research undertaken at Tampere University of Technology. The learning outcomes of the programme are:
- Attains a competence to follow the development of scientific engineering field and to improve their expertise.
- The competence to use their language, communication and cooperation skills in working life and to apply them to scientific activities and societal debate.
- attains a competence to operate in expert, development and managerial positions in the area of science and engineering
- attains the competence to participate in societal debate pertaining to technology.
- the competence to apply the knowledge acquired during advanced studies and a scientific approach to topical and concrete tasks
- After achieving the learning outcomes, students will meet the prerequisites for pursuing a postgraduate degree.
The total extend of the degree is 120 ECTS credits of which 90 credits are composed of course work and 30 credits of the master’s thesis. Each credit represents an average workload of 27 hours including lectures, assignments, independent learning and an examination. Students are expected to earn around 60 credits per academic year and thereby complete the degree in two years.
