Information Technology is a one-year Master's Degree programme leading to a degree of Master of Engineering, in Finnish Insinööri (ylempi AMK). The language of instruction is English.
The aim of the Degree Programme in Information Technology is to educate specialized IT professionals who have the competence of a senior designer or a software architect. The studies focus on the most important applications and methods of modern IT engineering.
The focus areas are software requirements, system architectures, server and mobile programming, and also conceptual modeling and databases. It is also possible to complete a course which focuses on project work in an international and multicultural working environment.
There are 30 credits (cr) of course-based studies, comprising 20 cr of advanced professional skills, 5 cr of technology studies and 5 cr of free-choice studies.
Students also do a final thesis, which takes the form of an independent software development task with a practical application to working life. The task is carried out as a process, and is worth 30 cr. In practice, the task takes place as project work involving input from people from different countries. Thus, in addition to technical skills, the students must develop project management skills in order to get the task completed according to plan. This involves developing and applying the students' skills in creative working methods, creative problem-solving and personnel psychology.
The development task is presented to a group and written up in the form of a report.
