Bachelor of Engineering, EQF 6
General admission criteria, see TAMK’s websites.
It is possible for students to have their prior competence recognised.
See TAMK’s credit transfer guidelines
The degree is a bachelor-level professional higher education degree.
The degree complies with the criteria set by the Finnish national degree system as well as with the European framework for degrees and other competence.

The annual themes for the studies describe both the learning goals as well as the professional growth stages for each year. The goals of the annual themes are:
After the first year you will have the skills required to act as a trainee in ICT tasks. You will have studied mathematics and natural sciences in preparation for computing studies. You will also have studied basic studies preparing you for the advanced professional studies, such as programming, electronics, data networks and reporting.
After the second year you will have the skills required to work in ICT in, for example, troubleshooting and testing, software testing and design, network testing and building. You have the required basic knowledge and skills of the ICT field. You have the skills required for engineers in mathematics and natural sciences and have selected your study path for the advanced professional studies.
The third year themes depend on the study path:
Telecommunication and data networks: You will be able to take part in challenging ICT tasks and projects, data network design and implementation.
Embedded systems and electronics. You will be able to take part in challenging ICT tasks and projects and the design and implementation of machine-level electronic devices.
Software engineering: You will be able to take part in challenging ICT tasks and software projects, starting from software requirements specification all the way to demanding software development/coding.
After the fourth year the students will have met the requirements for engineers.
The tasks are typically connected to R&D projects (SW, HW, RF) in the ICT field and expert, usage, maintenance, marketing and management tasks. The jobs emphasise the ability to work both independently and in teams, problem solving and development. Many ICT tasks take place in international projects or multinational companies. You will need to have the skills to work in international and multicultural environments. ICT also offers good opportunities for entrepreneurship.
The degree gives eligibility for master’s degrees.
Assessment of study performances is based on TAMK’s assessment criteria
The detailed assessment criteria can be found in course implementation plans. The teaching and assessment methods are agreed on with students at the beginning of each course.
TAMK Degree Regulations
Completion of studies and achievement of competence objectives in the extent set by the curriculum.
he studies emphasise simulations, software development and laboratory work. You will see how simulations work in actual systems through measurements and demos you will carry out yourself.
Most of the studying takes place in regular classrooms and the practical tasks in laboratory premises. In laboratories you will apply theory into practice, learn to simulate or model a situation and measure how various solutions work.
The Ministry of Education and Culture’ definitions of policy and TAMK’s strategy have been considered in the curriculum.
