The Degree Programme in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) is built on world-class research in machine vision, biomedical engineering, intelligent information analysis, cybersecurity, ubiquitous internet, and applied computing. The research is carried out in three groups: Biomimetics and Intelligent Systems Group (BISG), Center for Machine Vision and Signal Analysis (CMVS), which is composed of two research groups: Machine Vision Group and Physiological Signal Analysis Group, and the Center for Ubiquitous Computing (UBICOMP), composed by four research groups (Interactive Edge, Crowd Computing, Perception Engineering, and Design Research).

CSE offers both summer training positions and scholarships for summer trainees to conduct the 521027S Advanced Practical Training (Syventävä Harjoittelu) for two months in the CSE research groups.

The training can be allocated for June-August period based on agreement with a training topic supervisor. The scholarship for trainees is 1500 €.

The scholarships are intended for M.Sc.(eng.) students of the University of Oulu enrolled in:

a) Computer Science and Engineering National and International Master’s Programme or
