Information and Communications Engineering
The Master's Programme in Computer, Communication and Information Sciences (CCIS) offers both broad and focused majors. It is the largest IT programme in Finland both in number of students and size of the faculty!
The programme provides also an excellent basis for doctoral studies. Many successful students work first as research assistants, then complete their Master's thesis at the department, and later continue as doctoral students.
Acoustics and Audio Technology - Computer, Communication and Information Sciences, Master of Science (Technology)
The major in Acoustics and Audio Technology equips students with a fundamental understanding of human hearing, audio perception, and physics of sound. The skills they acquire enable, for example, reducing noise pollution, planning harmonic environments and designing coherent sound experiences.
Communications Engineering - Computer, Communication and Information Sciences, Master of Science (Technology)
In our digitally revolutionised world, the ability to develop, build, and maintain networks is in greater demand than ever before.
Signal Processing and Data Science - Computer, Communication and Information Sciences, Master of Science (Technology)
In the Signal Processing and Data Science major, you will learn to extract useful information, discover patterns, and make predictions from large amounts of signal or data. You get to apply your knowledge to the physical world – making devices, systems and entities smarter and more environmentally friendly.
Speech and Language Technology - Computer, Communication and Information Sciences, Master of Science (Technology)
Aalto University’s Speech and Language Technology major benefits from leading research in machine learning and speech technology, with researchers actively involved in teaching. Graduates of the programme are well-equipped to launch their careers in the fast-growing field.
Human-Computer Interaction - Computer, Communication and Information Sciences, Master of Science (Technology)
By creating user-friendly next-generation computing products, HCI experts help society make the most out of revolutionary technologies.
The Communications and Data Science Double Degree Programme covers a range of timely, industry topics relevant to modern fields of engineering. Communications and Data Science is a two-year master's programme, with student mobility between Aalto University, Grenoble INP Graduate schools of Engineering and Management at Université Grenoble Alpes, or Técnico Lisboa at Universidade de Lisboa.
