Bachelor of Engineering, Information Technology (B.ENG) (full-time studies)
The IT contents concentrates on network technologies and providing services with modern server environments and data centers. You gain the skills to design, build and administrate small and medium-sized business network environments and to implement security measures to them.
Programming skills are also developed along the studies. In your final study year, you specialize in IoT systems and advanced topics according to your own interests. To reach these goals you also study some physics, electronics and mathematics with project management knowledge and skills.
Xamk organizes a large part of the studies through Microsoft and Cisco academies, which allows our students to get Microsoft and Cisco certifications. This is a valuable advantage when searching for a job in the IT market.
There are lectures, but also a lot of practical experiments in your studies. After some progress in studies you can also take part in research projects at Xamk and in other projects from working life. At its best your bachelor’s thesis relates to one of the projects commissioned by some company.
Instruction in this degree programme is in English. Most of the teachers are Finnish, making Finnish communication with staff and teachers possible as well.
Structure of studies
Your competences grow in steps while progressing in your studies. The studies are grouped into modules of usually three courses, and 15 ECTS credits, but there are also annual themes for each study year.
During the first year you are an active learner finding your best learning techniques and working life skills. You gain professional vocabulary in technical issues and learn basic programming skills. Courses in computer hardware, operating systems, networking and information security give a background to further develop technical knowledge.
During the second year you deepen your knowledge of networking and gain practical skills to design, install, configure and manage secure computer networks. You also get familiar with modern server and data center environments as well as start familiarizing yourself with the IoT systems. In addition, you develop your programming skills and gain important background knowledge in computer electronics and mathematics courses.
During the third year you combine all your knowledge together by implementing services and prototypes with IoT devices and servers. You also practice project management skills and have a chance to participate in various projects.
The fourth year is the time to complete your bachelor's thesis. It is wise to start this 15 ECTS credit project early and it typically relates to working life. The practical training included in the studies can also be carried out at this time or earlier, for example, during the summer breaks.
