Bachelor of Engineering | Information Technology (B.ENG) | full-time studies

The IT program gives you a solid foundation on IT and allows you to specialize in the field of your own interest with flexible study plan. With this method, you can find and utilize your personal strengths as a future IT engineer.

The program is built around three key themes : networking, data centers and IoT (Internet of Things) which are supported with other topics such as information security, programming and project studies.

The studies are carried out in our modern and comfortable campus, with state-of-the-art IT equipment.

In our IT programme you focus on computer networking and implementation of services in a modern data center environment. You learn to build secure Internet-connected wired or wireless local area networks. You can manage and run server environments and understand how data centers operate. Information and network security is also an important part of the studies.

Different IT skills are combined together in IoT systems with which you learn how to develop and prototype services and understand their possibilities in global business.

You also learn programming, which allows you to develop and customize services for your needs. A personal study plan allows you to customize your studies based on your own interests and skills.

Structure of studies

Your competences grow in steps while progressing in your studies. The studies involve 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 fundamental IT skills and learn basic programming. Courses in computer hardware, operating systems, networking and information security give a background to further develop technical knowledge. The first–year studies also include IT–related mathematics and physics courses.

During the second year you enhance your knowledge of networking and gain practical skills to design, install, configure and manage secure computer networks. You also become familiar with modern server and data center environments as well as start studying IoT systems. In addition, you develop your programming skills and gain important background knowledge of computer electronics and mathematics courses. 

During the third year you combine your skills and knowhow 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. After gaining all the essential IT skills for your studies, you can select optional advanced topics according to your own interests. 

The fourth year is the time to complete your bachelor’s thesis. It is wise to start this project of 15 ECTS credits 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.
