Below are elective studies offered by Information Technology (English Degree Programme) & Information and Communication Technology (Finnish Degree Programme).

* CLICK THE NAME OF THE STUDY MODULE: You will get more information about the content of the study module, campus (if teaching is face-to-face), language of instruction and group ID of the schedule.

* CLICK THE NAME OF THE COURSE: The content of the course opens up. When you click the implementation from the top, implementation details will open up.

NB! CHECK the previous knowledge requirements before enrolling. Please notice that, for example, some of the courses offered by the major of IoT and Cloud Computing are meant for IoT students only.

NB! CHECK the language of instruction. Some of the courses are offered in Finnish.


* Schedules will be published in December in
* Schedules will be planned so that the courses in the same study module (eg. TIVI-ELECT1) won't overlap.
* NB! You can't find the 3rd period elective courses by using your major group ID. Search the course schedules using course code or group ID mentioned in the list below (eg. TIVI-ELECT1).
* Lessons will be held online. Teachers will inform students about the course specific teaching arrangements through course workspaces in OMA.


* First enrolment time for the courses is on 30 Nov at 08:00 - 13 Dec 2020 at 23:59.
* NB! Enrolment time is limited. Enrol on time to make sure you have a place in the course.
* Course will be cancelled if not enough students enrol for the course. If the course is cancelled, students are informed about this and they can enrol for another elective course.
* Second enrolment time is on 21 Dec at 08:00 - 10 Jan 2021.
