LUT University

Study in:Finland
Expired
Deadline: 31 May 2019

About

During the Computational Engineering and Technical Physics Program from LUT University you can specialise in one of the three areas – Technomathematics, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition 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.

Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition

In Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition 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

In 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.

Careers

After completing the studies, you will be able to pursue different careers in industry, science and research.

You will have career prospects in such areas as the development of information processing systems, project planning and management in ICT companies.

The employment rate for computational engineering graduates has consistently been high – in addition to engineering positions, computational engineering experts are needed in bioscience, medicine, environmental protection, meteorology, digital media production, and gaming.

Jobs for computational engineering graduates include:

  • Weather and climate analyst
  • Project manager in an ICT company
  • Developer of simulation models in a wind power company
  • Designer of machine vision systems
  • Mobile technology developer in a telecommunications company
  • Materials developer for a solar cell company
  • Risk analyst in financing
  • Actuary in an insurance company
  • Researcher in a Finnish or foreign university or research institute

Program Structure

Courses included:

  • Technical computing
  • Design of experiments
  • Research methods
  • Modelling and simulation systems
  • Financial models
  • Risk analysis and decision support systems
  • Intelligent data analysis

Academic Requirements

  • The score range represents scores typically accepted at this institution.

    The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today’s graduate and business school programs worldwide. The GRE® General Test contains three sections – Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 – 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 – 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 – 6 score scale in half-point increments.

    or GRE Physics OR: Scaled score 560/GRE Mathematics: Scaled score 560.

You are eligible to apply to this program with one of the following degrees:

  • Bachelor of Science in Technology: Tekniikan kandidaatti – Completed in a Finnish University
  • Bachelor of Engineering – Insinööri (AMK) Completed in a Finnish University of Applied Science
  • Bachelor of Science in Technology OR closely related to Technology – All countries – Completed in a University
  • Bachelor of Engineering – EU/EEA countries – Completed in a University of Applied Sciences

The degree must be equivalent to a similar Finnish Bachelor’s Degree regarding to number of academic years and ECTS credits required.
