International MSc programmes

At the School of Computing, you can study in two international MSc degree programmes. Programmes are taught in English, take about two years and contain 120 ECTS credits. The students interact with local and international companies and research institutes, giving them great international career opportunities.


The Intenational MSc programme in Information Technology (IMPIT) offers an internationally recognized Master's Degree in IT at the European standards in less than two years. The prerequisite is BSc level education with a background in Computer Science, Information Technology, Communications Engineering or in a closely related field. The language of instruction is English. IMPIT programme is offered in Joensuu campus.

UEF is coordinating a new Erasmus Mundus - Partnership with Japan Master's Programme in Imaging and Light in Extended Reality.

The multidisciplinary IMLEX programme brings together image conversion, lighting and computer science. The objective of the programme is to train experts who in addition to a solid theoretical understanding of virtual reality will also possess strong practical skills in virtual reality applications.  Students on the IMLEX programme will benefit from European research expertise combined with Japanese expertise in research addressing virtual reality and robotics.

IMLEX is implemented by a consortium of four universities:

University of Eastern Finland, Toyohashi University of Technology (Japan), University Jean Monnet (France) and KU Leuven (Belgium).


Computational Color and Spectral Imaging (COSI) is a two-year scientific Erasmus+ Joint Master’s Degree, aiming to train the next generation of highly-skilled industrial experts in applied colour science, in various cutting-edge industries (photonics, optics, spectral imaging, multimedia technologies, computer graphics and vision) in a diverse range of sectors (including multimedia, health care, cosmetic, automotive, food-processing).  The two areas of focus are spectral technologies and applied colour imaging.

The programme is organized together with Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway), University of Eastern Finland, University of Saint-Etienne (France), and University of Granada (Spain). COSI is an interdisciplinary programme, encompassing photonics, imaging science, computer science and multimedia technology as a mix of theoretical and practical knowledge. At the UEF, COSI is co-organized by the School of Computing and the Department of Physics
