Information Technology (in English)

First year of studies is organised in four study themes. They provide fundamental knowledge and skills in the field of ICT and also introduce the study paths in Information Technology Degree Programme. This enables a student to choose the most suitable study path for him/her. Mathematics, physics as well as computer science, English and business skills are integrated in the study themes. Finnish for Foreigners courses are offered as separate courses. The first year of studies aims to build a solid theoretical and technological base for professional studies.

During the 2nd year, students will focus to develop and further their professional competence. IT Degree Programme offers three study paths:
- Mobile Solutions
- Smart Systems
- IoT and Cloud Computing

The 3rd year of studies will begin with professional studies which will deepen the engineering skills and theoretical knowledge in his/her specialization. During the last part of 3rd year students have a possibility to complete elective studies or to study in one of the many partner universities as an exchange student.

The final year of studies provide the innovation project which is a project often completed in a multidisciplinary project team requiring strong engineering skills and team working skills. The learning process will culminate in the Bachelor’s Thesis.
