Program Overview

Program Description:

- The international Master's programme in Software Engineering aims at providing students with advanced software engineering and management skills, as well as specialized skills in two major application domains: enterprise systems and embedded real-time systems. The Master´s programme is jointly delivered by the two largest public universities in Estonia - University of Tartu and Tallinn University of Technology. Upon successful completion of the programme, students will receive a joint degree signed by both universities. - When it comes to tuition fees and scholarships, we have several good news: Full-time students admitted to this Master’s programme in 2014 will automatically receive a tuition-waiving scholarship. One important disclaimer though: this tuition-waiving scholarship is for students who complete a full-time study load of 30 credit-points (ECTS) per semester. Students who do not complete 30 credit-points per semester will pay tuition fees of € 65 per missing credit point below the required 30 ECTS per semester. Past history indicates that over 90% of international students who study full-time in this programme complete the required 30 ECTS per semester. Several stipend-paying scholarships are available. These include scholarships of € 300 per month provided by the IT Academy programme. - And if that’s not enough, here is a third good news: You don’t even have to apply for a scholarship. All students who apply for admission in this Master’s programme are automatically considered candidates for scholarships. The top-ranked candidates according to past academic performance and motivation are offered a scholarship together with their admission.

6000 EUR.
