What is FITech?
FITech (The Finnish Institute of Technology) is a network consisting of nine universities offering education in technology in Finland: Aalto University, University of Eastern Finland, University of Jyväskylä, LUT University, University of Oulu, Tampere University, University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University and University of Vaasa. Founding members are also Technology Industries of Finland (Teknologiateollisuus) and the Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland (TEK). FITech Network University is coordinated by Aalto University.
The founding mission of FITech is to increase the co-operation of Finnish technical universities. The goal is to guide experts to growth sectors in Finland and respond to competence needs arising in the field of technology.

FITech for adult learners
FITech courses are especially suitable for people who have studied earlier at a university or a university of applied sciences or are interested in university studies. 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 that are marked available for degree students. Some of the courses are suitable for Finnish high school students.
The study offering includes beginner, intermediate and advanced level courses. You can start studying a new topic on beginner-level courses as intermediate and advanced courses are aimed at those who already have relevant ICT knowledge. It is possible to study alongside work as most of our courses are organised online. The teaching method of each course is explained on the course information page.
