The software engineering programme is a pioneering new collaboration between Finland and Namibia, where students study at the University of Turku satellite campus at the University of Namibia in Windhoek. Working closely with students and companies from the EU and from Southern Africa will train software engineers who are able to understand IT-related challenges in the global south and design, develop, implement, and evaluate software solutions to meet these requirements.

The M.Sc. (Tech.) degree programme is based on the standard UTU M.Sc. (Tech.) degree programme mainly implemented online in Namibia, but including contextual elements in projects and demonstrations. A few courses will be also arranged in Windhoek and delivered online to Turku campus. The degree programme is available for all eligible students from all around the world.

Career or after graduation opportunities

The employment percentage of those holding an Master of Science (in Technology) degree is high in Finland and elsewhere. There is a shortage of well qualified software engineers in both Finland and Southern Africa, as well as an established startup culture in Finland which is still in its early stages within Namibia.

Possible job titles are:

  • Project manager
  • Software engineer
  • Software Architect
  • Test manager
