Professor in charge: Tommi Kärkkäinen

Software engineering is a line of study organized in cooperation by the two departments of the Faculty of Information Technology. Its focus is the production processes of software, the methods and tools used in these processes and the theoretical grounds of the methods. The students will develop the necessary skills for both designing, implementing and maintaining the life cycle of information systems and producing independent pieces of software.

The research in software engineering done at the department of mathematical information technology consists of developing methods and applications related to, e.g., signal and image processing, data mining and neurocomputing, understanding and reusing programs, and programming languages. Current research projects are related to, e.g. the processing of industrial measuring signals and biosignals, and to data mining and its applications.

What Will I Do When I Grow Up?

The line of software engineering prepares students for posts in the designing, implementing and maintaining of information systems. The graduates can also produce independent pieces of software.
