Computer Engineering

Major subject – Computer Engineering

Today, information technology is a vital part of our everyday lives. With Computer Engineering as your major subject, you will learn how to apply expertise in information technology, engineering and mathematics, becoming a professional problem-solver in information technology’s countless areas of application. Studies tackle both software and hardware, and will help you understand how they interact with both users and the operating environment. Your studies will provide you with an insight into both supercomputers and small, integrated systems used in devices. At the Master’s level in Engineering, you will gain a more in-depth understanding of various themes, such as high-performance computing, software technology or integrated computer systems.

At the Bachelor’s level, your major subject studies will be supplemented by a technical minor subject specifically tailored to students in Computer Engineering. Elective courses also provide you with an excellent opportunity to influence your future professional profile. During engineering studies at the Master’s level, you can also choose modules from other subjects and further expand your competence. Computer Engineering can be a practical minor subject for students with a different major subject and an interest in IT.


Research in Computer Engineering is largely conducted in co-operation with the Turku Centre for Computer Science (TUCS) as well as industry. Subjects in Information Technology also engage in interdisciplinary research together with other subjects, both within and outside Åbo Akademi University.
