Objectives of the programme

The program objective is to educate engineers who will be able to design, implement and maintain distributed software systems for a wide range of applications including peer-to-peer, cloud computing, web-services provision and internet-based applications. The program will provide students with a system of knowledge both in formal foundations, technological platforms and practical skills in implementing distributed software applications. The program will also provide an insight into current and future directions of the distributed software development.

Graduates of the programme are able to

  • analyse and design a complex distributed IT-system  based on network,  storage,  and processing components
  • describe a service-based system using dedicated description languages
  • calculate and assess the necessary quantitative capacities of the system components to achieve specified performance goals
  • can apply up-to-date technology in fault tolerance and security to achieve privacy and dependability goals in complex distributed systems
  • identify business opportunities in the area of cloud computing and to turn them into operation
  • communicate technical issues to professionals and non-professionals
  • work in multidisciplinary and multinational teams and take over responsibilities
  • have business skills to understand and execute a business development process, and have insight in legal and societal aspects of products and services

Note about master's thesis: In some exit universities, requirements for master's thesis may be different from Aalto's requirements. A master's thesis done according to the requirements of such an exit university is accepted at Aalto. However, at Aalto the thesis is evaluated and graded according to the guidelines of Aalto. If a section of the thesis is not adequate in terms of Aalto's requirements, it may affect the grade of the thesis. Guidelines for master's thesis evaluation are available in Into:https://into.aalto.fi/display/enmastersci/Master%27s+thesis#Master'sthesis-Master'sthesisevaluation 

Note also that according to Finnish legislation, a master's thesis is a public document and its contents cannot be confidential. Therefore, the material of the thesis must be chosen so that it does not include any information that could be classified as a business secret of the financing company
