Degree structure and studies

The Master's Programme in Computational Engineering and Technical Physics is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.

The programme includes core, specialisation, minor, language and elective studies.

Core studies (7-12 ECTS credits) include courses on technical computing, the design of experiments and research methods.

Specialisation studies (74 ECTS credits) are divided into three alternative fields: Technomathematics, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, or Technical Physics.

TECHNOMATHEMATICS includes topics such as modelling and simulation systems, financial models, risk analysis and decision support systems, and intelligent data analysis.

COMPUTER VISION AND PATTERN RECOGNITION includes topics such as digital imaging, image processing and analysis, pattern recongition, and machine and computer vision.

TECHNICAL PHYSICS includes topics such as material physics, nanophysics, applied optics, and microelectronics.

Minor studies (min. 20 ECTS credits) may deal with subjects such as renewable energy and energy efficiency, industrial engineering and management, software engineering and digital transformation, international business management, digitalisation and business analytics.

Elective studies (20 ECTS credits) can be selected from any disciplines at LUT.

The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialisation studies. The thesis is an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. Students complete it during their fourth semester.

You can find the most recent information about courses, teaching schedules and degree structures in the LUT study guide.

Double degree studies for students from partner universities

Students from partner universities are able to study as double degree students at LUT. Students admitted to the double degree programme receive a degree certificate from two universities after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities.

The Computational Engineering and Technical Physics programme's double degree partner universities are:

  • Moscow Power Engineering Institute, Russia
  • Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnical University, Russia
  • Petrozavodsk State University, Russia
  • South Ural State University, Russia
  • Southern Federal University, Russia
  • St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University, Russia
  • St. Petersburg University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics, Russia
  • St. Petersburg State University, Faculty of Physics, Russia
  • National Technical University of Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute", Ukraine
