Bachelor Data Science
Bachelor's degree
Data Scientist has been famously described as the sexiest job of the 21st century. Why? On the one hand side, the field offers a diverse mix of capabilities, skills and corresponding opportunities for specialization that never gets boring. On the other hand, data science, i.e. the generation of insights and value from raw data is the fulcrum of truly digital businesses across all sectors. Here, data informs not only the optimization of existing processes. Even more importantly, it is the key enabler of entirely new business models. Our international bachelor program is an ideal opportunity to acquire the relevant skill-set, getting a headstart on your competition. Our graduates are going to take implementing roles in the current data revolution.

Program content

The Bachelor program in Data Science lays the proper foundation for a fantastic career in data.
  • You will understand the mathematical and statistical fundamentals of data analysis, as well as getting a solid overview of current machine learning techniques.
  • You will gain expertise in modern data handling technologies at scale.
  • Software engineering for data-intensive applications will be an integral part of your curriculum.
  • Our unique approach combines lectures and seminars with hands-on projects. During the course of your studies, you will acquire a portfolio of projects to demonstrate your skills.
  • You can specialise and qualify in your choice of three areas.
  • A wide range of electives allows you to expand your knowledge of application domains.

Master's Program in Atmospheric Sciences
Master's degree
There is a global need for experts with a multidisciplinary education in atmospheric and environmental issues. In the Master’s Program in Atmospheric Sciences (ATM-MP), you can study aerosol physics, geophysics of the hydrosphere, meteorology, biogeochemical cycles, remote sensing or atmospheric chemistry and analysis. You learn to work with environmental issues and deal with matters like air pollution, climate change, deforestation, extreme weather and water resources. The ATM-MP also educates all meteorologists in Finland for weather forecasting, meteorological research and aviation safety. In addition, we educate hydrosphere geophysicists to work in the fields of cryology, hydrology and oceanography, and chemists and aerosol physicists to work in companies. This program is also available in Finnish and Swedish.

Program content

The Master’s Programme in Atmospheric Sciences (ATP-MP) has six study tracks representing the different branches of atmospheric sciences. The study track is selected during the first semester of studies. The study tracks are:
  • Aerosol Physics
  • Biogeochemical Cycles
  • Geophysics of the Hydrosphere
  • Atmospheric Chemistry and Analysis
  • Remote Sensing
  • Meteorology
Your first year of studies will consist mainly of lecture courses. During the second year, you must also participate in the seminar course and give a presentation yourself. There is also a project course, which may contain laboratory work, data analysis, or theoretical or model studies. You will have to prepare a short, written report of the project. There are also several summer and winter schools as well as field courses for students in the Programme. Many of the courses take place at the Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station in Southern Finland.

Tuition fees

The yearly tuition fee (for non-EU/EEA citizens only) is 15000€

Scholarships & funding

Scholarships are intended for excellent students from outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland who want to complete a Master’s program at the University of Helsinki. For more information about scholarships, please visit the university website.

Career opportunities

Society urgently needs experts with a multidisciplinary education in Atmospheric and Earth System sciences. Climate change, urban air quality and extreme weather are matters of global concern which science cannot yet completely explain. Thus, more scientific research needs to be made. Environmental specialists are also needed in companies ranging from clean technology to energy and insurance, as well as among policymakers and governments.

Graduate Diploma in Reproductive Sciences
Diploma / certificate
The course provides a broad knowledge and practical training in the applications of reproductive biology to current human clinical and veterinary medicine, and explores social and ethical issues raised by the use of these techniques. The course also provides an opportunity for those interested in expanding or refreshing their understanding of reproduction and development to update their knowledge. On completion of the course, students will be able to demonstrate a thorough theoretical understanding of human and animal reproductive sciences and demonstrate practical techniques currently in use in human medical and veterinary reproductive sciences. Students who pass all units for this course and achieve an overall grade average of distinction (70 per cent) or above may qualify for admission into higher degrees by research (HDR) and the Master of Clinical Embryology.
