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 embedded electronics 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, innovation project, industrial placement periods, and a Final Year Project.

The main competences 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.

Core 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 can be chosen according to student's own professional interest.

Specialisation options in Information Technology degree programme, are:
Telecommunications and Data Networks
Embedded Engineering
Software Engineering
