A profession project for Masters, Licentiates and Doctors in Technology

Diplomi-insinööri (DI) (Swedish: diplomingenjör) is a Finnish Master's level academic degree with a nominal length of 300 ECTS credits. The official English translation of the degree is Master of Science (Technology). The Finnish name derives from the old German degree called Diplom-Ingenieur.

The degree qualifies for the tekniikan lisensiaatti (Licenciate of Science (Technology)) and the tekniikan tohtori (Doctor of Science (Technology)) degrees. It is preceded directly by tekniikan kandidaatti (Bachelor of Science in Technology), and, with some additional study, by other Bachelor's level degrees. It is a taught master's degree, but includes a half-year project (diplomityö, Master's thesis).

I Sweden the corresponding degree is called [Civilingenj%C3%B6r] Sources:
