Degree structure and studies

The Nordic Master's Programme in Sustainable ICT Solutions of Tomorrow is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.

This is a double degree programme developed in cooperation with Aalborg University Copenhagen (AAU), Denmark. Students admitted to this Master's programme will receive a degree certificate from both LUT and AAU after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities.

The programme includes core and advanced specialisation studies as well as a Master's thesis.

Core studies, 35 ECTS credits, include research design and methods, software design and development, ICT solutions aligned with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and a project on services and platforms.

Advanced specialisation studies, 55 ECTS credits. Two options available:

  • 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 Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is an advanced research project during the programme's fourth semester. The Master's thesis is a part of the advanced specialisation studies and requires approximately six months of full-time work.

The programme is divided into four semesters, each 30 ECTS credits. The studies include an exchange period in the partner university.
