FITech courses are free of charge for all Finns and people living in Finland. You can start learning a new topic on a beginner course or deepen your knowledge on something more familiar on intermediate and advanced courses. Many of the courses are organised as online studies.
The University of Vaasa offers 13 courses this autumn, with topics ranging from energy technology, digitalisation, Artificial Intelligence to 5G technologies.
Get to know autumn courses on the FITech website.
Some ICT courses are offered free of charge for the last time
Please note that courses under the FITech ICT project won't be available in spring 2024. Thanks to the funding granted by the ministry of education and culture, these ICT studies have been free of charge for all Finns and people living in Finland, just like all other FITech courses. However, the ICT project 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.
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.
FITech – The Finnish Institute of Technology
The Finnish Institute of Technology (FITech) was founded in 2017 by seven Finnish universities of technology, Technology Industries of Finland (Teknologiateollisuus) and the Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland TEK. University of Jyväskylä and University of Eastern Finland have joined FITech afterwards.
The founding mission of FITech is to contribute to the development of Finnish innovation capacity and to respond to competence demands arising in the field of engineering.
