The best of future technologies

Studies at the School of Technology are a practical-oriented alternative to traditional university education and give the students an excellent combination of hands-on skills along with a strong theoretical knowledge base. For the summer 2017 we have tailored a special Future Technologies programme, which consists of two different packages to choose from. 

The Summer School is aimed at students from our partner institutions and JAMK students. Your study group is multicultural and gives you the opportunity to get to know people from different countries.
