About

The Theoretical and Computational Methods programme offered by the University of Helsinki will give you a strong basis in the theoretical methods, modelling, and mathematical and numerical analysis within physics, mathematics, chemistry and/or computer science.

Overview

The special feature of this Theoretical and Computational Methods programme taught at University of Helsinki is that you can combine the above disciplines into a comprehensive programme. 

The strong scientific emphasis of the programme makes it a natural gateway to further studies in physics, mathematics, chemistry and computer science. 

Upon completing the Master’s Programme in Theoretical and Computational Methods, 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

As a graduate with an MSc degree you could embark on a career in:

  • Industry, especially advanced technology corporations (applied research and R&D, leadership)
  • Universities and research institutes abroad and in Finland (basic scientific research)
  • Teaching in universities and universities of applied sciences
  • Software engineering, e.g. gaming industry
  • Various design and consultation jobs in the public and private sectors
