Master's Programme in Computational Engineering and Technical Physics

Computation and physics are an integral part of modern society and science. One cannot overstate the importance of scientific knowledge and computational engineering in the global information society and  industrial economy, particularly as the systems we use grow more and more complex.

Effective computational engineering allows for shorter design cycle times, better product quality and improved functionality. Knowledge of physics helps us appreciate, comprehend and interact better with the environment.

In this Master's Programme you will acquire extensive knowledge about physics and mathematics and computing and their application to the rapidly changing problems of industrial and economic life. These are the skills which you can apply in your future career to find novel solutions to challenges in today's society.

You can specialise in one of the three areas – Technomathematics, Intelligent Computing and Technical Physics.

Technomathematics

In Technomathematics you will study modelling of industrial and environmental processes, fuzzy systems, and developing mathematical models and methods. During your studies, you will focus on real-world applications, with active collaboration in the international community of industrial mathematics.

Intelligent Computing

In Intelligent Computing you will study information processing, both in systems and in their design. You will focus on computer vision systems and machine learning contributing to the current trends in automation. You will get good competencies in the development of information processing systems, automation for production and application utilising visual quality control.

Technical Physics

Your studies will focus on materials physics, nanophysics, semiconductors, superconductors, spintronics and optical measurement technologies. LUT physics cooperates extensively with Russian universities and has wide contacts with Finnish and European physics laboratories.
