Structure of studies
The bachelor's degree (180 ECTS) is composed of basic studies of the programme (65 ECTS mathematics, programming, industrial engineering and management, obligatory languages, Aalto studies, orientation), the major in digital systems and design (65 ECTS including BSc thesis and seminar), the minor (20-25 ECTS) and elective studies (25-30 ECTS).
See the programme curriculum on the student portal Into.
The programme combines theoretical knowledge with applied experiences in the multidisciplinary fields required to plan and develop large digital systems, such as (autonomous) cars, planes, ships, satellites, etc. In particular, the studies cover the design of such systems as well as essential competences in networking, electronic circuits, estimation and learning, control and automation, as well as optical communication.
Building on the education of decent mathematical and programming competences, the programme educates and deepens their understanding through various integrated courses and workshops that foster hands-on experience and management skills through agile team projects.
These skills are today's key competences that make the difference in working life and careers. The Digital Systems and Design major trains English presentation and writing skills, as well as management and first industrial experiences.
