On the university courses offered through FITech, you are able to update and upgrade your skills free of charge. Society and the world of work are rapidly going digital, and FITech can help you keep up with the changes. 

FITech’s courses are offered by Finnish universities of technology, which guarantees their high quality. You can start studying a new subject from the basics or go deeper into a subject you know better with intermediate or advanced level courses. 

Next spring, more than 200 courses will be offered, covering a wide range of topics from ICT, 5G technology, energy storage and the hydrogen economy. 75% of the spring courses will be offered either as distance learning or as self-paced open online courses (e.g. MOOCs). There are also some courses that offer the possibility to attend contact teaching on the university campus. 

The application period for spring courses is now open and closes about two weeks before the start of each course. The first courses will start in January 2024. 

Note! The application period for courses starting in January ends on 17.12.2023.
