What are FITech studies?

FITech consists of seven universities of technology in Finland: Aalto University, LUT University, Tampere University, University of Oulu, University of Turku, University of Vaasa and Åbo Akademi University. Starting in December 2019, University of Jyväskylä has also joined FITech Network University.

Each university offers a set of courses and minors for students and adult learners to choose from. These studies are based on each university’s scientific profile and know-how. This way we ensure that the selection of courses is diverse and answers to the needs of students as well as the working life.

All FITech studies are free of charge!

For degree students:

Degree students can complement their degree by studying a new minor or individual courses with FITech. A part of FITech minor courses are open for adult learners.

FITech also has some Master of Science (MSc) in technology programmes offered by LUT University. People with degrees of engineering (e.g. from a university of applied sciences) can apply if they want to complement their degree to a MSc degree. Adult learners who are eligible can apply as well.

For adult learners:

FITech ICT courses aim for upgrading the skills and competences of those already in the working life.

Courses are especially suitable for people who have studied earlier at a university or a university of applied sciences. The courses are designed in a way that makes it possible to study alongside full-time work.

The courses are primarily targeted for people who do not have a valid study right at a Finnish higher education institution at the moment. Nevertheless, if you are currently studying at a university or a university of applied sciences in Finland, you can still apply for the courses, as there are places available for both adult learners as well as university or UAS students in several courses.
