Education in the programme is multidisciplinary, combining the expertise of the Department of Computer Science, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, the Department of Physics, the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT) and the Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP). The University of Helsinki offers a huge variety of possibilities for minor studies with which you can complement your data science expertise. For example, you can take advantage of courses offered by the MSc Programme in Life Sciences. Collaboration with Aalto University, through the joint institutes HIIT and HIP, gives you further opportunities.
Teaching in the programme is based on research carried out in the above-mentioned departments and institutes, often in collaboration with other fields of science, as well as with industry. Particle physics data analysis, for instance, is carried out in collaboration with CERN. An example of industrial cooperation is the Nokia Center for Advanced Research, a joint research centre between the University of Helsinki, Aalto University, and Nokia.
