Students who start their studies in autumn 2020 will need their own laptop for their studies
Häme University of Applied Sciences will start so called BYOD (Bring your own device) practice during 2020 and 2021. All new students will need to have their own portable laptop by Autumn 2020 and all HAMK students by Autumn 2021.
Each student must be able to install applications for their laptop, which they will use in their studies. Mobile devices and applications installed on them can also be used to support studying in addition to a laptop. HAMK has outlined the necessary features for laptops and each degree programme have their own recommendations for laptops and accessories. You will find all recommendations on BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
IT services will provide guidance to students and if necessary, support students in the use of laptops. This change supports studies that are not depended on time and place and aids the progress of the studies. Similarly, this leads to a reduction on computer rooms maintained by HAMK.
HAMK has been preparing the change for a long time and now is the transition period for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).
