About Master's Degree Programme in Software Engineering at University of Turku

The software engineering masters programme is guided by directly involved industry partners in Europe and Southern Africa to provide a international programme in professional practise. This programme is taught by the University of Turku and located in Windhoek, Namibia.

This software engineering programme is a pioneering new collaboration between Finland and Namibia, where students study at the University of Turku satellite campus at the University of Namibia in Windhoek. Working closely with students and companies from the EU and from Southern Africa will train software engineers who are able to understand IT-related challenges in the global south and design, develop, implement, and evaluate software solutions to meet these requirements.

The employment percentage of those holding an Master of Science (in Technology) degree is high in Finland and elsewhere. There is a shortage of well qualified software engineers in both Finland and Southern Africa, as well as an established startup culture in Finland which is still in its early stages within Namibia.

Possible job titles are:

  • Project manager
  • Software engineer
  • Software Architect
  • Test manager
