Towards a SAFER Future

The complex and rapidly changing security and safety environment, continuous technological advancements, and new needs concerning enterprise risk management, occupational safety and the protection of citizens are calling for innovative and future-oriented interdisciplinary education in the fields of security and safety management.

New professions will continue to emerge in both the public and private sectors (public administration, security organisations, businesses and civil society) locally, nationally and globally. The new professions in security, safety and risk management require innovative in-depth knowledge and skills that are based on interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies. Organisations and enterprises need highly qualified professionals with a thorough understanding of security and safety management, safety engineering, risk management, governance and leadership.

The Masters Degree Programme in Security and Safety Management (SAFER) responds to this demand by educating experts who specialise in either Safety Management and Engineering or Security Governance. Depending on their major, students graduate with the degree of Master of Science in Technology, MSc (Tech), or with a Masters Degree in Administrative Sciences, MSc (Admin). The two majors have their own admission and degree requirements. Apart from the majors, the programme mainly consists of joint courses. Students enrolled in SAFER can also choose courses across any of the faculties at Tampere University.

Study contents

The Master’s Degree Programme in Security and Safety Management is a unique combination of technological and social scientific approaches. The insightful programme provides students with a solid understading of safety and security management, risk management, governance and leadership.

The studies consist of joint programme studies in Security and Safety Management, intermediate studies in Safety Management and Engineering, and elective studies in a chosen area (students pursuing a master’s degree in technology are also required to complete an additional study module). Students may freely select their additional module (minor) to direct their expertise towards a desired career path or a field of interest.

All students with a previous degree from a Finnish university of applied sciences (AMK) are required to take complementary studies, which generally include courses in mathematics, physics and/or chemistry depending on the student’s background.

All students in the Master’s Degree Programme in Security and Safety Management take part in a joint master’s seminar towards the end of their studies and prepare a master’s thesis under the supervision of a professor.

Eligibility criteria

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.

General eligibility

To be eligible to apply to a Master’s degree programme at Tampere University, you must have

  1. 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
  2. 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 Security and Safety Management, Safety Management and Engineering (MSc tech) track, the previous degree has to be in one of the following (or highly related) fields:

  • technology or engineering or other closely related field with proficiency in mathematics 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)
3,50/5 3,00/5

 

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.
