About this program

Aalto Bachelor's Program in Science and Technology - Computational Engineering

Engineers and scientists are now relying heavily on computational simulation techniques to develop new technologies and shape the world we live in. Ships, geothermal power plants, wind turbines and biomedical devices are a few examples of products where computer models are used to predict how new design ideas will behave in reality.  The Computational Engineering major will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to understand, use and develop these computational tools, preparing you to make accurate predictions regarding complex physical problems.

Throughout your studies, you will develop your skills in applied mathematics and become familiar with the most common theories in physics, mechanics and engineering.  You will learn to use some of the most popular engineering software packages, and develop your programming skills by implementing algorithms to solve design problems.

You will also have the opportunity to apply your knowledge to tackle real-world engineering problems in multidisciplinary projects. These projects will bring you closer to professional engineering practice and allow you to develop your abilities to work as a team, manage projects, and communicate your results effectively.

After completing your studies, you will have a strong background in mathematics, engineering and computing.  You will not only be familiar with existing computational methods, but also possess the knowledge necessary to follow future developments in this rapidly evolving discipline.  The program will give you the foundations to become a computational expert ready to tackle advanced engineering problems in a variety of fields.

Computational Engineering is one of the majors in the Aalto University Bachelor's Programme in Science and Technology available in English. For students with sufficient proficiency in Finnish, it is also possible to study the 20-25 credit minor subject of the bachelor’s degree in Finnish.

Admission requirements

All applicants must fulfill the general eligibility requirements for higher education. You are eligible to apply if you have completed or will complete during spring 2020 one of the following Programs:

  • Finnish matriculation examination
  • International Baccalaureate degree (IB)
  • European Baccalaureate degree (EB)
  • Deutsches Internationales Abitur degree (DIA) or Reifeprüfung degree (RP) in Finland

Qualification

By completing the Aalto Bachelor’s Programme in Science and Technology, you will earn a Bachelor of Science (Technology) degree (180 ECTS), or tekniikan kandidaatti in Finnish. The degree is designed to be completed in three years.

After graduating from the BSc Programme the student automatically has the right to continue studies in selected master's programmes. By completing the Master's programme in field of Technology in Aalto University, you will earn a Master of Science (Technology) degree (120 ECTS), or diplomi-insinööri in Finnish.

Continuing studies

After completing their Bachelor degree, most of our graduates continue their education to the Master’s level before starting their professional career. Graduates from the Computational Engineering major will be entitled to pursue a Master of Science (Tech.) degree at Aalto University. You will also be able to apply to Master's Programs at other universities in Finland and abroad.

Career paths

Computational simulations now constitute an essential part of all technological industries. This means that you will be able to pursue a career in a wide range of fields including energy, construction, manufacturing, mechanical systems and more.

Our students usually continue their education to the Master’s level. After completing their studies, our graduates typically work for small, medium or large companies, governmental organisations or research institutions. An academic position is also possible after completing a doctorate degree. Professional titles that typically include possibilities for advancement to management duties include:

  • Civil engineer
  • Geoengineer
  • Mechanical engineer
  • Naval architect
  • Product designer
  • Production engineer
  • Software engineer
  • Structural engineer
