First Year Curriculum

The first year courses focus on building strong theoretical tools for the students to be able to master the skills, techniques and requirements of the second year specialization. The hosting university for all studies during the first year of the programme is Åbo Akademi University, Finland.

The students will study core data science and software engineering courses during the first year. The 40 ECTS “core module” focuses on providing theoretical ground work for the second year specialization. The first year study at Åbo Akademi University provides a strong practical aspect of the field as well, to equip students for real working life situations. The practice oriented studies at Åbo Akademi University are covered through the 20ECTS “project and practice module”.
