FITech - For Future Tech Talents!

The recently published courses starting in the fall are particularly suited for working adults who have already completed university studies at an earlier stage. The studies can be completed flexibly while working, as many courses are implemented as distance studies online.

There is a need to update ICT skills in almost all areas of the world of work. Artificial intelligence shapes many jobs, and although not all professions require in-depth programming skills, basic competence in programming is very useful.

At the universities, competence will be supplemented through general minor subjects of information technology. The studies can be completed in an extensive manner from the basics of programming and artificial intelligence to the development of information systems. Courses are available in areas such as programming, artificial intelligence, and software design and systems.

The Machine Learning with Python course at Aalto University was fully booked in an instant

Studies offered by FITech are currently piloted as individual courses. More than 200 students instantly enrolled on the online course in machine learning offered by Aalto University. The eight-week course can be fully completed as distance learning.

Assistant Professor Alex Jung from Aalto University, who is responsible for the studies, leads us to artificial intelligence and machine learning by reminding us that most of us already have an AI assistant in our smartphones. This assistant helps us find the nearest supermarket, translates information into foreign languages, or locates the best Italian restaurant in the city. Many of these features are implemented through machine learning.
