The programme offers one major, Information Networks. The major includes compulsory Information Networks specific courses (Table 1) and studies from the selected tracks (see Tables 2, 3, 4, and 5). Thus, the specific content of the major depends on the student’s own interest. The student may build his/her competence profile based either on ICT in Business, Knowledge and Business Networks, Media, or User-Centered Design.  The student is encouraged to select the core content of the major to support his/her Master’s Thesis interests.

The Research Assignment course will be modular starting with introducing research methods to all Information Networks students. The content of the actual research assignment will be aligned with the core substance area of the student’s major. 

If any of the Information Networks specific courses has been taken as a part of the student’s Bachelor studies, it can be substituted with any of the optional courses of the major or courses in other programs of Aalto, or courses completed in student exchange.
