Currently, there’s a great need for ICT experts in Finland, and Finnish employees alone cannot meet that demand. The Salo area, where the TUAS campus is located, is full of technology companies who recruit graduates from the nearby universities. An ICT degree from TUAS gives you a competitive edge in the Finnish labor market and increases your chances at being employed after graduation.
