FITech Network University offers university studies for all Finnish people and permanent residents of Finland who want to learn something new or update their current knowledge.

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. The projects of FITech network are funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture and will continue on current funding until the end of 2023.

Why study with FITech?

  1. Learn skills that will take you forward on your career
  2. Study on high quality university courses
  3. Our courses are free of charge
  4. You can study the courses alongside work

Study offering includes courses on different ICT topics, 5G technology, hydrogen economy and energy storages.

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.
