The focus of the sub-programme of Software Systems is in methods for producing large and complex software in a systematic way. The development of this kind of software requires technical skills; other focuses include group and project work, disciplined high-quality development processes, documentation, and reuse. Students graduating from the sub-programme are typically appointed technical software or database system experts or software development project managers.
In the advanced studies of the sub-programme, students can specialize in software engineering, service-oriented software engineering, and database systems. The goal of software-engineering education is to train students in processes needed in producing large high-quality software. The goal of education in service-oriented software engineering is to train experts at producing and managing inter-organizational service networks or at development of the software tools needed in these tasks. The goal of database-systems education is to train experts at software systems that make use of database systems.
In this sub-programme, most of the courses are given in Finnish.
