Landscape Architecture

Master's Programme in Urban Studies and Planning, MSc in Landscape Architecture

Cities provide enormous economic, technical and cultural opportunities, but they are also places of social conflicts and segregation as well as environmental and health problems. The magnitude of such challenges implies that no single field of research or profession can tackle them alone.

Urban Studies and Planning

Master's Programme in Film and Television - Screenwriting

The aim of the Master's Degree Programme in Screenwriting for Film and Television is to strengthen the student's individual expression, skills in writing for film and the abilities required in artistic and production-related process work and group work. Master’s students become familiar with the central theoretical questions in the field and its research.

Screeningwriting

Master's Programme in Geoengineering

As one of the highest ranking programmes in its field, the Master’s Programme in Geoengineering provides world-class education in the disciplines of geoscience, material science, mechanics and construction. As geoengineering is a discipline involved with soil and rock, working as the primary basis for our built environment, one could call it the hidden science of everyday life. Simultaneously, geoengineers play a key role in urbanisation and circular economy, fighting climate change and the growing use of natural resources. Thanks to their highly appreciated knowledge and skills, as well as the programme’s close collaboration with the industry, graduates tend to find great job opportunities with ease.

Students conduct geoengineering field exercises in Otaniemi.
