Software Engineering focuses on the systematic, efficient and effective development of software systems.
Software Engineering is a major subject within the Masters programme in Computer Engineering. The programme in software engineering comprises the use of specification, design, programming, validation and lean project planning and management methods and tools to develop high-quality, affordable and maintainable software systems.
The studies include courses in software engineering, network software, information systems and management Sciences. Communication skills and team work are also an important part of the studies. There is a special emphasis on the development of internet-based software services and applications. The capstone project course and the Masters thesis are often carried out in collaboration with the software industry.
The programme is designed to provide the student with the necessary knowledge and skills to join the software industry and participate in demanding software development projects. It also provides the required background for doctoral research studies in software engineering.
Successful completion of this two-year full-time study programme results in the award of a Master of Science (Technology) degree (diplomingenjör).
The Department of Information Technologies is located in the Turku Science Park, in the ICT building, where research groups and academic programmes meet, interact and collaborate with ICT companies - many of which are multinational and well known (Nokia, Siemens, Ericsson, etc.). The study facilities are brand-new and equipped with the latest technology.
A completed university level Bachelors degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering or in a closely related field is required for admission. Eligible applicants are selected on the basis of how well the bachelors degree corresponds to the programme and on the study merits of the student.
Applicants must always prove their knowledge of the English language. For more detailed information on admission requirements.
No entrance examination. Admission is granted on the basis of the application.
The study environment benefits from the teaching and research experience gained as part of the Centre for Reliable Software Technology (CREST) - an excellence research centre at the Department of Information Technologies. Its research is focused on the development and analysis of software intensive systems and on the use of software based research paradigms in systems modelling and development. CREST's key competencies are in formal methods for software development, construction of embedded systems, software processes, high performance and energy efficient computing, systems biology, data mining, and CS education.
Since its founding in 2002, CREST has been appointed National Centre of Excellence by the Academy of Finland for the years 2002-2007. CREST has a worldwide network of researchers and industrial companies.
The Department of Information Technologies is located in the Turku Science Park, in the ICT building, where research groups and academic programmes meet, interact and collaborate with ICT companies - many of which are multinational and well known (Nokia, Nokia-Siemens Networks, Ericsson, F-Secure, Vaadin, etc..). The study facilities are brand-new and equipped with the latest technology. The programme is coordinated by the Software Engineering Laboratory which is committed to performing high-quality research on processes, methods, and tools for engineering software-intensive systems.
