After graduating with a Master of Engineering Degree in Information Technology, you may work in advanced specialist tasks in international engineering surroundings of ICT. In some sectors a Master’s degree is often a prerequisite for management positions.
Eligibility for a UAS Master’s degree programme is conferred by an appropriate UAS higher education degree or another appropriate higher education degree and at least three years of subsequent work experience in a relevant field. As a relevant field is regarded both the field being applied to and the field of the previous higher education degree.
Appropriate higher education degrees are:
- the Finnish Bachelor of Engineering degree (insinööri AMK); or
- some other appropriate Finnish higher education degree with minimum extent of 240 cr (ECTS); or
- some other appropriate Finnish higher education degree combined with a former Finnish “college level” degree (opisto- tai ammatillisen korkea-asteen tutkinto) in the relevant field; or
- appropriate foreign higher education degree equivalent to the above mentioned Finnish higher education degrees in terms of level, extent and content (assessed by the degree programme).
In addition to the appropriate higher education degree, applicants must have 36 months (three years) of subsequent work experience in a relevant field accumulated as from the date of issue of the final higher education degree certificate and obtained no later than 31 July 2019. Universities of applied sciences also accept work experience obtained after completion of Finnish (must be completed in Finland) post-secondary or higher vocational level diploma (in any field of education) but prior to the date of issue of the final higher education degree certificate. In such cases, too, at least three years of work experience obtained in a relevant field is required.
Entrepreneurship will be accepted as work experience if an applicant can produce a certificate attesting that he or she is or has been covered under the statutory YEL or MYEL pension scheme. (YEL = statutory pension scheme for entrepreneurs; MYEL = statutory pension scheme for farmers, forest estate owners, fishers and reindeer herders and their family members). Enterprising activities abroad should be substantiated with comparable official documents.
Work experience is given in full months. When converting part-time work (work under 35 hours per week) into its full-time equivalent, 150 hours or 20 working days lasting at least 7 hours per day correspond to one month of work. Work experience does not have to be continuous or obtained with the same employer. The amount of work experience points awarded for simultaneous employment relationships may not exceed the amount awarded for full-time employment.
Military or non-military national service, women’s voluntary military service or child-care leave will not be counted towards work experience.
No discretionary admission.
