Programme-specific admission requirements
The Master’s Programme in Information Networks is a trans-disciplinary study programme in engineering building on information and communication technology (ICT) and digital media. It combines the fields of social sciences, advanced digital technologies and business. The Master’s students combine in their studies computer science, media technology, industrial management and business with a human-centred approach. The programme is not a Master’s Programme in telecommunication technologies.
An acceptable applicant shows a clear interest in people as individuals, groups, or communities, or organisations and society using information and communication technology. Acceptable applicants’ previous degrees allow them to take the engineering Master’s degree in two years. Therefore, preference will be given to applicants with the B. Sc. degree either in computer science, media technology, industrial engineering and management or natural science, or with some combination of these subject areas. The official study transcript of the applicant should indicate
- elementary university-level mathematics such as calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics about 20 ECTS combined
- programming or computer science about 20 ECTS
- computer graphics or media technology about 10 ECTS
- operations and service management, or organisational behavior and leadership about 10 ECTS.
Additionally, human-centred studies (e.g in user experience design, communication, psychology, sociology or philosophy, or some combination of these subjects) will be considered as a merit for the applicant. The desired amount of this type of studies is also about 10 ECTS.
The Programme Selection Board reserves the right to require the applicant to complete defined complementary courses as prerequisites for the Master’s programme. These studies cannot be included in the Master’s degree. Applicants will be notified about whether they are required to take complementary studies at the time of selection. The amount of these courses may not exceed 15 ECTS.
An acceptable applicant has achieved consistently very good grades at her/his home university. The degree certificate and/or the official transcript of university records should clearly indicate this. In the Finnish universities applying the grading scale 1-5 (5= excellent), the weighted GPA should be about 4. When evaluating each applicant’s academic performance, we emphasize the grades achieved in the degree that gives the eligibility for applying. The recognition of applicant’s home university affects the final interpretation of the academic performance.
The Selection Board reserves the right to decide whether or not a degree and/or a university meet the admission requirements.
