5G technology

Fast and high-capacity mobile connections are made possible by 5G network technology. The coronavirus pandemic has spurred the move to 5G network technology by increasing the need for remote work, remote guidance of production, and other new services.

An exceptionally strong position has opened for Finland in developing 5G network technology, and the industrial products and services that utilise it. Finland holds a leading global position in the field, and keeping that position depends on how capable we are at training skilled labour for the needs of a growing market.

Eight FITech universities together with University of Helsinki have launched expert training in 5G technology. The courses are open to all, and free of charge. Topics of the courses include, for example, the internet of things, embedded internet, system vulnerabilities, and wireless technologies.

Teaching and application period

Below you will find all 5G technology courses that FITech offers. Some of the courses are continuously ongoing and some have different application periods. To find out the exact application period, see course details. If the application period is not active, you can subscribe to the course. This way, you will receive an email notification when the application period starts or other course information is changed.

All studies are free of charge. FITech reserves the right to change the course information without prior notice.

NB! You can take one or more courses but it is not mandatory to complete all of the courses in the specialization. Some courses have limits on the amount of FITech students. Persons without a valid study right to a Finnish university have preference to those courses.

"Microservice architectures and serverless computing course helped to understand what aspects are worth considering when planning architectures. Also, the teacher had an excellent way of presenting things in an interesting manner."
