Why study Computer Science?

During the past decades, Computer Science and Engineering has had a significant impact into our daily lives.

The development continues and soon computers will not be used as separate devices anymore but will instead blend into our living environments and offer us rich sets of services through natural and intuitive user interfaces.

The graduates from Computer Science and Engineering will play a key role in this development.

Our department offers you an excellent opportunity to build your skills and knowledge, especially in mathematics and natural sciences, in problem solving – and naturally in computer science and engineering.

You can specialize based on your interest, for example, in intelligent systems and techniques like artifical intelligence and digital signal processing.

Another option is to specialize in designing embedded systems for mobile phones, cars, wearable devices, for example; or you can decide to become a specialist in networked technologies and business solutions.

Studying Computer Science and Engineering is an extremely rewarding experience.

Employment prospects

The employment rate of CSE graduates is excellent and our studies prepare you for a large variety of jobs.

You might develop new computational methods, or build novel software or large networked systems.

In addition to design tasks, you might lead a large development project, work in marketing, or run your own business for example.

The research in computer science and engineering at the University of Oulu has been acknowledged of its internationally high quality. You can continue studies after the Master degree, work as a researcher in one of the research groups and target for a PhD degree.

Working abroad is common as well.
