Nordic Master's Programme in Sustainable ICT Solutions of Tomorrow

Software has an ever-increasing role in our society and in solving the greatest challenges humankind is facing – especially climate change.

The double degree Nordic Master's Programme in Sustainable ICT Solutions of Tomorrow aims to produce experts who can design ethical, usable and privacy-aware software solutions for a sustainable future. The programme focuses on ICT and software knowledge, skills and competencies; the design, development and deployment of digital solutions and services; sustainable and ethical decisions; and user (human or machine) experience and privacy.

The programme gives competences in software development, technologies and system architecture, digitalisation, and innovation – all with a sustainable goal and underlying demand. Students can further specialise in sustainable digital transformations or innovation and digital sustainability.

You can specialise in one of two areas – sustainable software engineering or sustainable ICT solutions – during the third semester of the programme.

  • The sustainable software engineering specialisation at LUT is based on core studies of software engineering and applies sustainable thinking.
  • The sustainable ICT solutions specialisation at Aalborg University Copenhagen builds on Internet technologies from a sustainable perspective.

The double degree Nordic Master's Programme in Sustainable ICT Solutions of Tomorrow is developed in cooperation with Aalborg University Copenhagen (AAU), Denmark. The programme combines the software engineering education of LUT with the ICT engineering education of AAU. Students admitted to this double degree programme receive a degree certificate from both universities after they have fulfilled their degree requirements.

Students may participate in education either in class or online. The programme includes a mandatory mobility period at Aalborg University Copenhagen during the studies.

If you have a Bachelor's degree in software engineering from LUT University, please apply by 15 February 2022 by sending an e-mail to prophet@lut.fi with the following attachments:

  • a free-form application letter indicating your motivation to apply to the double degree programme,
