Basic courses of digitalisation

The use of information technology is commonplace in all companies. New digital innovations shape the actions of companies on all areas of business.

In practice, almost all information is now in digital form. This enables companies to develop their businesses and revenue logic to a whole new level. Agile software development methods, software robotics and the effective use of artificial intelligence require new skills from all employees of the company.

The digitalisation courses offered by FITech universities cover the topics of digital transformation, digital ethics and digital photo editing.

NB! 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.
