The Bachelor degree studies are followed by advanced studies, leading to the Master of Science (MSc) degree. The MSc studies are scheduled to be completed in two years after obtaining the Bachelor degree. The objective of the advanced studies is to instil a scientific way of thinking and studying in Computer Science, to provide the students with skills necessary for independent work, as well as with the ability to adapt easily to new knowledge, concepts, and methodologies. This is especially important in Computer Science, as developments in the field are advancing at a rapid rate.
The students undertaking the advanced studies need to specialize in a certain Computer Science area. The topic of the MSc thesis is chosen in this area of specialization. The purpose of the thesis is to demonstrate the achieved scientific maturity of the student. The thesis is a scholarly essay developed independently by the student, with content logically and linguistically correct. A MSc thesis in Computer Science is often accompanied by a software implementation.
When graduating, the students will have both a good basis for starting PhD studies, as well as solid practical competences for successful careers as software engineers, software designers, software analysts, or computational scientists. The numerous fields in which computer systems are applied ensure a wide range of career opportunities in Finland and abroad. Finland is a high-tech-intensive country with a strong demand for such graduates.
