Degree structure

The Master's degrees in the field of science and technology are currently being reformed and new Master's programmes will be launched in autumn 2015. More information about the new master's programmes.

The information on these pages applies to the current regular degree programmes at Aalto. These programmes are mainly given in Finnish or Swedish. Students participating in international Master's programmes should consult the home pages of the programmes for information about the degree structure. (If you are a Finnish student, please consult the pages in Finnish.)

The teaching given by the Department of Information and Computer Science is arranged into modules according to the Aalto University School fo Science degree regulation of 2011  as part of the Degree Programme of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and the Degree Programme of Bioinformation Technology (BIO). The module structure is based on the TKK degree regulations of 2005.

The modules given by the department are depicted in the following diagram. The contents of a major or minor subject of a B.Sc. or M.Sc. degree can be formed by following any single path from left to right in the diagram and collecting all modules along this path which apply to the chosen degree level. The modules included in the major and minor subjects of the degree must be separate from each other.
