Besides Aalto University, the courses are offered by LUT University, University of Oulu, Tampere University, University of Turku, University of Vaasa and Åbo Akademi. Additionally, University of Helsinki and University of Jyväskylä offer 5G studies.

Last year to study FITech ICT courses free of charge

The ICT courses offered by FITech have been very popular throughout the past years. Thanks to the funding granted by the ministry of education and culture, these studies have been free of charge for all Finns and people living in Finland. However, the funding cycle will terminate at the end of this year. This means that the current ICT courses will remain free of charge only until 31 December 2023.

So, if you want to learn more about programming, cybersecurity, machine learning or other popular ICT topics, now is the perfect time to get to know the study offering and make learning your new summer hobby.

There will be one more chance to study the ICT courses free of charge in the autumn as the next application period will start on 1 June 2023.

Other projects (energy storage, 5G technology and hydrogen economy) will continue as planned on current funding cycles even after this year. The operations of FITech Network University as a whole will also continue as usual.
