This modern education combines information technology and human sciences, connecting the Master of Science in Technology degree to the multidisciplinary opportunities offered by the University of Jyväskylä, from arts to sport and health sciences.

The Faculty of Information Technology coordinates the development of a broad-based and relevant programme in the field of technology to meet the needs of society.

Education leading to a Master of Science (Technology) degree is being prepared

Today, there is a large demand for IT professionals who not only understand technology and are able to understand why systems are developed, but who can also collaborate with experts in the human sciences.

Rector Keijo Hämäläinen made an official decision on 5 October 2020 to establish the education and degree programmes. The Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree Education in Information and Software Engineering are part of the joint application system in spring 2021, and the education begins in August.

The Information and Software Engineering degree programmes will be implemented by the Faculty of Information Technology in cooperation with other JYU faculties. The diversity of the University of Jyväskylä offers a unique opportunity to study many other subjects together with IT, including sport and health sciences, music, arts, culture, psychology, languages and communication, learning technology and pedagogy, business and economics, plus many others.

New Professor of Practice will contribute to the start-up of the master’s education

Professor of Practice Janne Roslöf will begin supporting the start-up of the technology studies on 1 November 2020. Roslöf’s area of strength is his expertise in the development of technology studies as well as education leadership. The main duty of the Professor of Practice is to provide his expertise to support Vice Dean Lauri Kettunen in starting a high-quality technology programme that appeals to students and meets the needs of working life.

The other duties of the Professor of Practice include cooperation with interest groups in starting the education, such as with the business community, other units offering higher education in technology as well as various organisations in the public sector. Furthermore, he will cooperate with other JYU faculties and participate in planning and implementing the content of the education.
