Program description

Science and Engineering - Natural Sciences and Mathematics

The Bachelor’s Programme in Science and Engineering offers all this! It is a cross-disciplinary degree programme that provides you with a solid grounding in several core fields of engineering and the ability to follow rapid technological developments and apply scientific methods.

The Science and Engineering programme has two tracks: Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Computing and Electrical Engineering.

The major subjects available in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics track are

  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biomedical Engineering

We offer our students high-quality teaching in relatively small, multicultural study groups where teamwork is strongly supported. In addition to providing a sound theoretical basis for further studies in the field of technology, the programme places special emphasis on internationality, employability and connections to industry. With this unique combination, our students are well-prepared for the international world of research and industry.

Graduates with a Bachelor of Science in Technology degree are eligible to continue their studies directly towards a master's degree at Tampere University without having to re-apply. There are multiple options to choose from among the English-taught Masters of Science (Tech) programmes offered by Tampere University.

Admission requirements

General eligibility

Eligible applicants hold an upper secondary education certificate - the Finnish matriculation examination, the International Baccalaureate, the European Baccalaureate, Reifeprüfung/Die Deutsche Internationale Abiturprüfung or any other comparable upper secondary educational qualification which provides eligibility for University-level Bachelor’s studies in the country in question.

Applicants who are in the final semester of their upper secondary education are also eligible to apply. They must complete the previous degree before starting the studies in the program.
