The basis of natural sciences is the modelling of phenomena and solving these models. The Master’s programme in theoretical and computational methods will give you a strong basis in the theoretical methods, modelling, and mathematical and numerical analysis within physics, mathematics, and chemistry and/or computer science. The special feature of this programme is that you can combine the above disciplines into a comprehensive programme. It is well suited for the needs of fundamental and applied research. This programme requires a strong commitment from you to develop your own skills and plan your degree. You can tailor your programme according to your existing knowledge and interests, in cooperation with the programme professors. The programme’s strong scientific emphasis makes it a natural gateway to further studies in physics, mathematics, chemistry, and computer science. This will usually take place within one of the research groups working on the Kumpula campus.

Upon completing the Master’s programme, you will:

  • Have a solid basis of skills in your chosen scientific field
  • Have good skills in analytical and computational thinking and deduction
  • Be able to apply theoretical and computational methods to the analysis and understanding of problems in various fields
  • Be able to generalise information on scientific phenomena, and identify the inner relationships
  • Be able to create mathematical models of natural phenomena
  • Be able to solve the models, both analytically and numerically

The special feature of this programme is its great scope: it consists of several modules in physics, mathematics, chemistry, and/or computer science. Out of these, you may select a suitable group of subjects according to your interests and the courses you took for your Bachelor's degree. The programme incorporates modules from e.g. the following areas:

  • Theoretical physics
  • Mathematics
  • Cosmology and particle physics
  • Computational physics
  • Physical chemistry
  • Laser spectroscopy
  • Mathematical physics and stochastic
  • Applied analysis
  • Software engineering
  • Theoretical computer science

The Master’s programme comprises 120 credits (ECTS) and it is possible to complete the degree in two academic years. The degree includes:

  • 90 credits of courses in the Master’s programme, including the Master’s thesis (Pro grade) of 30 credits
  • 30 credits of other courses from your Master’s programme or other programmes

Your studies will include a personal study plan, working-life orientation, and career planning. The other studies could also include a traineeship, complementary courses in your major or minor subject, or a completely new minor subject.

Career prospects

The Master’s degree in theoretical and computational methods gives you an excellent basis for postgraduate studies or for work in many careers in Finland or internationally. Masters of Science employed within research and R&D in industry are very well paid. On the other hand, a career at a university or a research institute lets you carry out academic research on a topic of your own choosing.

Persyaratan masuk

Untuk mahasiswa dari Indonesia

A graduate applicant is a person who already has graduated with the first degree, usually a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, from a higher education institution. A Bachelor’s degree is the lower academic degree and it takes three to four years of full-time studies to complete. The Bachelor's degree should be in the same field of study they apply for - or closely related to it. The International Master's Programmes may accept applicants with a more varying background. Some programmes may accept students with a Bachelor's degree from a university of applied sciences. English language minimum requirements are as follows: TOEFL PBT (Paper-based) 580; CAE: Pass levels A, B or C; CPE: Pass levels A, B, C or level C1 certificate; PTE academic: 62, with a minimum score of 54 in each communicative skills section (listening, reading, speaking and writing); University Of Helsinki language services: average skills level 5; National Certificate Of Language Proficiency: skills level 5 in the reading comprehension, writing and speaking subtests.
