Embedded Engineering

Degree Programme in Information Technology

Information technology professionals work in the various areas of IT business: in telecommunications industries, software enterprises, telecommunication operators and service providers, and in many other information technology-related positions such as in computer and automation industries.

Learning aims and results
The aim of the Bachelor´s degree programme in Information Technology (240 ECTS credits) is to equip a student with the most up-to-date and high-quality knowledge and skills in information technology. The degree gives a student a solid basis to work as an engineer anywhere in the world as a student acknowledges intercultural aspects due to the multicultural study environment and student community. Additionally, language and communication as well as project skills are included to the degree programme to complement the engineering competence. This enables a graduate to head for an international career in various areas of information and communications technologies. A student will be linked to working-life throughout the studies via industry-related projects, innovative project, industrial placement period in the third study year and a Final Year Project.

The main competences, a graduate will have after completing a degree, are:

• Software Technology
• Telecommunications Technology
• Embedded Engineering
• Information Technology Systems
• Information Technology Security

Structure of the Programme
The extent of the Bachelor of Engineering degree programme is 240 ECTS credits and the duration of the studies is four years. The studies are arranged in a modular way in which there are four modules in each academic year. One module includes around 15 ECTS worth of studies. Industrial placement (20 weeks) is undertaken during the spring-term of the 3rd study year.

The courses in Basic Studies (languages, mathematics, physics, basic business courses) and Professional Studies, that provide the necessary theoretical basis, are compulsory and common to all students of the programme. The courses in the various optional modules of Professional Studies are either compulsory or optional depending on the specialisation option that a student has chosen

Specialisation options in Information Technology degree programme, are:

• Communications and Data Networks
• Software Engineering
• Embedded Engineering
• Information Systems
