Creating the new digital world
Software Engineering, Web & Cloud (M.Sc. Tech) provides a solid understanding in software engineering: the ability to design and implement large software systems, and the competence to manage and improve software development processes. Technologies and skills in networking and clouds belong to the core of the studies. A rich variety of other studies in a range of topics such as business, information security, user experience, big data and IoT are available at Tampere University.
An exceptionally large number of IT companies in the Tampere region provide an inspiring environment and opportunities to apply your skills and address real-life challenges. The research activities and close collaboration with companies ensure that the contents of the degree programme are both on a high level academically and relevant to the industrial positions.
After graduation, you can have a career as a versatile software professional or further your studies on the doctoral level.
Software, Web & Cloud (M.Sc. Tech) track is one of the seven tracks in the Master’s degree programme in Computing Sciences, a new degree programme starting in August 2020.
Software, Web & Cloud is designed for applicants with a background in computer science or software engineering who are looking to expand their knowledge and skills in the development of high-quality software. Software, Web & Cloud draws on both academic and industry perspectives and covers the full lifecycle of software development.
The studies are anchored in real-world problems and explore subjects such as requirements management, software modelling and specification, implementation and testing software, software project management, and the web and cloud.
We offer our students the opportunity for a broad, cross-disciplinary education. A rich variety of minor studies and supplementary courses are available as well as the opportunity to concentrate purely on major studies. In fact, each degree is a unique combination of studies that the individual student has found most interesting.
There is lack of software professionals in Finland and abroad, and almost 90% of students pursuing software-related majors at Tampere University are employed on the day they graduate. A typical career in a company starts with working as a programmer and then advancing towards expert and/or managerial positions. Our graduates find employment also in commercial and administrative tasks relating to the field, without excluding abilities to work as a researcher or teacher.
Following the successful completion of the programme, our graduates will be eligible to apply for admission to doctoral programmes in Finland or abroad.
Eligibility criteria in the Master’s degree programmes consist of two parts: Tampere University’s general eligibility criteria, and programme-specific eligibility criteria, which specify and/or add information to the general criteria. You must meet both to be considered eligible. Applicants who do not meet both the general eligibility and the programme-specific eligibility criteria will not be selected as students in Tampere University.
To be eligible to apply to a Master’s degree programme at Tampere University, you must have
- Bachelor’s degree – nationally recognized first cycle degree
- which corresponds to at least 180 ECTS (European credits) or to three years of full-time study
- from relevant field for the Master’s degree programme that you’re applying to
- from an accredited institution of higher education
- AND a good command of the English language for academic purposes. For more information, please see Language requirements.
A Bachelor’s degree completed in a university outside Finland must provide eligibility for university-level master’s degree studies in the country in which it was awarded.
Applicants in their final final year of the Bachelor’s degree are eligible to apply if the degree will be completed by 31 July 2020. In this case, they may be accepted conditionally. Please see special instructions for applicants in the final year of the Bachelor’s degree.
Applicants with a Master’s degree may be admitted only well-founded reasons and only if they are able to show that the new degree at Tampere University provides the applicant with significant new knowledge and skills.
Programme specific eligibility criteria
The previous degree should be from a field closely related to the Master’s programme you are applying to. In the Master’s programme in Computing Sciences, Software, Web & Cloud (MSc tech) track, the previous degree has to be in one of the following (or highly related) fields:
- computing, computer science, software engineering, information technology or other closely related field with proficiency in mathematics, programming, data structures, databases and physics.
Applicants who have completed their degree in Finland must meet the minimum cumulative GPA set by the programme to be eligible. The minimum is the same as in the admission to the same Master’s degree programme offered in Finnish.
|Minimum GPA for bachelor’s degree completed in a Finnish University of Applied Sciences (AMK)||Minimum GPA for bachelor’s degrees completed in a Finnish university (yliopisto)|
When counting the cumulative GPA weighted by ECTS only the courses (incl. thesis) with numeric grade value are taken into account. Applicants in their final year of Bachelor’s degree must meet the minimum cumulative GPA when applying and after graduation.
