The programme gives you a broad education covering several different fields within computer science and computer engineering. You will obtain the necessary knowledge and experience which is needed in different types of careers within the software industry(for example supercomputing, e-health, IT security, formal methods, embedded systems and software engineering), in the biotechnology industry (for example, bioinformatics, computer modelling), in the data analysis industry (for example, machine learning, customer segmentation, data-driven business).
Admission to the master's programme in Information Technology gives you the right to graduate with a Master of Science degree in Computer Science or a Master of Science (Technology) degree in Computer Engineering with a specialization in Software Engineering.
Computer Science has a special emphasis on computational modelling, distributed systems, and computational data analytics, while Software Engineering focuses on the development of software services and applications.
Students applying to the Master's Programme in Information Technology will be able to rank the two available tracks (Computer Science and Software Engineering) in order of preference in the application form. The second preference can be optionally added.
We are located in the recently renovated Agora building, where research groups and academic programmes from both Åbo Akademi University and the University of Turku, meet, interact, and collaborate. The study facilities are brand-new and equipped with the latest technology.
The programme is affiliated with the Turku Center for Computer Science (TUCS) graduate school, which coordinates all research and education in IT in both universities in Turku (University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University). Through TUCS, the students can take advantage of advanced-level courses offered by both universities.
