Develop expertise in mediated learning environments

Competence in reading and writing for media and creating suitable learning environments.

The programme focuses on developing expertise in the new discipline of digital literacy education. The discipline is formed by linking media literacy to information and communication technology in learning, media use, and critical thinking in media-saturated societies. The programme develops the students’ expertise in tutoring and develops the conceptual awareness and practical skills needed for competence in reading and writing media and creating suitable learning environments.

The programme and research on digital literacy education support the current research priorities of communication sciences, particularly from the perspectives of audiencing and priorities. Education sciences as a collaboration partner contribute to the programme by providing the perspective of pedagogies in mediated learning environments. The programme will facilitate maturity in the cognitive skills needed to understand and evaluate media and its contents as well as cultural practices, which enables media users to be more than consumers since they can actively do mediation for themselves (i.e. as prosumers)....

Make big sense of big data

Data analysis plays a central role in the modern information society. Organisations in the public and private sectors are collecting vast data sets, and public-sector data are increasingly made open. However, if full use is to be made of these data, they must first be analysed.

The programme teaches you to understand data analysis and master necessary skills, such as data cleansing, integration, modelling and prediction, and interactive exploration of data and models. You will also learn to present data analysis results to decision-makers with descriptive summaries and visualisations.

Successful analysts need skills related to both computational and statistical topics. As an analyst, you can be employed by analysis companies in such sectors as insurance, banking, public administration and health care, or in government agencies, organisations, and research institutes in these sectors. In addition to studies in one’s own degree programme, students may take full advantage of the courses offered by the multidisciplinary Tampere higher education community. Welcome to join us!... [-]

Wireless communications – connecting people and things

Digitalisation is here to stay. The ongoing digitalisation builds on an efficient communications infrastructure.

Communication is not only for humans anymore: the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet are the forerunners of a connected and programmable world where things are also able to communicate. Digitalisation will have an impact on a wide range of industries, such as energy, transportation, logistics and manufacturing.

Another prevailing trend in society and industry is robotisation. Modern inventions, such as self-driving cars and drones, strongly rely on highly efficient and reliable wireless communications while also utilising radio-based positioning and sensing/radar technologies. Wireless communications and radio frequency (RF) technologies enable the making of a wide variety of applications ranging from everyday consumer products to high-end industrial machines, robots and space science. The Internet of Things (IoT), 5G mobile communication networks and sensing/radar systems are the three most important application domains.... [-]

Your life depends on embedded systems

In the modern world, embedded systems are everywhere: in cars, buildings, factories and roads. They make our world smart.

Embedded systems work in interaction with their environment and other systems; they sense, process and communicate and even scavenge their energy from the environment. Embedded systems interact with people or work invisibly in the background.

Many embedded systems are designed to increase safety, such as the automatic anti-collision braking of a car, and some for fun, for example, a camera that augments reality in an outdoor game. Embedded systems combine hardware and software expertise.

As a student, we expect you to know the basics of electronics, digital logic, processors and programming. Having prior learning in computer networks and wireless communications is another option. The applicants should hold a BSc degree in computer science, electrical engineering or software engineering.... [-]
