Goal of the education

The basis of natural sciences is the modelling of phenomena and solving 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, 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 basic research and for many fields of application.  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.
