High demand for ICT engineers with software, ICT, and teamwork skills

ICT (Information and Communications Technology) skills have a high demand today. Many devices, such as household appliances and various entertainment services, use the Internet. Traditional, physical customer service locations in banks, insurance institutions, and public agencies have been replaced by Internet-based electronic services. These services are produced as cloud service in data centres, where large amounts of data are analysed. Artificial intelligence recommends services, songs, or products for purchase. How are these digital services produced in a secure manner and the users' trust in the use of the services ensured? The rapidly developing sector needs new experts who are able to apply new technologies to various innovations. Good examples include cyber security, the game industry, social media, cloud services, augmented reality, data analytics, artificial intelligence, and the 'Internet of Everything’ which has created a lot of buzz in the field.

“A degree programme in English provides extensive skills and the ability to work in the field of modern multinational technology. Software business is already fundamentally international, and the current remote work model speeds up this development."
