Do you want to shape the future and understand how the universe is built up?
Our understanding of the universe is based on advances made in basic science research over approximately the last 100 years. The core scientific disciplines of math, physics, chemistry, and computer science also set the basis for all modern technology. In the interdisciplinary Bachelor's Program in Science, you get to work on the cutting edge of exciting basic research and application development in all of these subjects.
The program offers an interdisciplinary education. During the first half-year, all students receive a foundation in university-level math and basic programming skills. After this, they can choose a specialization study track, with second- and third-year university-level courses offered in math, computer/data science, physics, and chemistry. It is possible to either deepen the studies in one of these study tracks or to combine studies of two or three tracks to get a truly multidisciplinary education.
Kumpula campus, one of the four campuses at the University of Helsinki, is the largest center in the Nordic countries for research in exact natural sciences, and a dynamic study environment with a good sense of community. We put efforts in using a wide variety of teaching methods and developing these continuously. As a student, you get easily involved in research groups and active student organizations.
Why Bach­el­or's Pro­gram in Science?
Our understanding of the universe and all modern technology is based on advances made in scientific research over approximately the last 100 years. The operation of computers and mobile phones relies fully on quantum mechanical principles, and the nature of the matter in the universe has been unveiled by studies in particle physics, astronomy, and cosmology. New exciting discoveries are constantly made and will affect our future. For instance, studies on quantum information combined with the development of new materials are just about to open up the doors for quantum computing, and the analysis by the artificial intelligence of big data will lead to new ways to cure disease.
The Bachelor's Program in Science offers an interdisciplinary education that will enable you to work on the cutting edge of exciting basic research and application development in math, physics, chemistry, and computer/data science.
