You will be extensively trained in ICT and learn to design and implement IT applications. Furthermore, the programme involves a great deal of business studies and you will become an effective communicator in the English language. The learning method is practice-oriented. In addition to studying theory you will acquire practical skills working in close contact with companies in the Lahti area, as a trainee and in various ICT projects. Towards the final stage of your studies, you will write a thesis where both your theoretical knowledge and practical skills are combined in the form of a research project carried out to a case company. ICT studies are an excellent way to learn to apply analytical thinking skills to another area of interest that you may have in addition to information technology. New business applications requiring knowledge both in IT and different fields of application are constantly being created e.g. in eBusiness, recreation business and environmental technology.
