Learning Outcomes

Master's Programme in Computer, Communication and Information Sciences (CCIS) is jointly organized by the School of Electrical Engineering and the School of Science.  The CCIS programme’s core courses provide strong foundation in computer science, communication engineering, and information science. In addition, students can immerse themselves deep into one of the specialization tracks or focused majors.

In CCIS, education is based both on scientific research and industrial state-of-the-art. Students gain in-depth knowledge in one major. They learn how to apply scientific knowledge and scientific methods independently. Students interested in pursuing doctoral studies after their M.Sc. degree can easily transfer to the Helsinki Doctoral Education Network in Information and Communications Technology (HICT). Students acquire professional language and communication skills. All students are encouraged to include international, multidisciplinary, and entrepreneurial components as part of their studies.
