Computer Applications Degree Content

Computer Applications (BBA) degree programme consists of 3,5 years of studies, which combine lectures and real work life connections. As a student you will spend a large part of your studies in an actual workplace learning by doing.

 

Core competence

Core competence studies and thesis are compulsory for all Computer Applications degree students. Work placement also belongs to core competence. The core competence studies cover a wide range of topics in programming. You will learn programming languages and techniques most commonly used today. Studies include also e.g. user interface design, operating systems, web development, databases, cloud operations, software robotics, business and innovation.

 

Profiling competence

 

Profiling studies are optional modules that you can use for steering your competence towards your career goals. After core competence studies, you will select studies according to your own interests and focus with the following profiling competences:

 

  • web- and mobile development
  • data science and artificial intelligence
  • software delivery and cloud computing

You may take optional studies from HAMK’s module selection, but also from other higher education institutions in Finland or abroad.

 

Co-operation and practical learning

 

Software development is teamwork. Therefore you will have projects where you will collaborate with other students, research unit or partner companies. Understanding clients and user needs is essential. To support businesses in a best way, you learn to make applications and systems easily accessible for the users. This requires a great deal of planning, patience, client understanding, project management and various other IT skills. You will develop these competences in your studies.

 

During your internship, you will work in a real job. You will also observe how the company, the employees and the customers interact. Many of our alumni IT students have been employed by their internship company.

 

Technology is highly involved in all of our studies. Module assignments, materials and timetables are provided online. Many applications, programs and environments used in the studies are provided through virtual environments. Our campus, Hämeenlinna University Centre is modern, safe and cozy which makes studying here enjoyable.

 

Internationalization

You can improve your language skills and open your horizons through student exchange or an internship abroad. HAMK has partner universities in various countries. Studies and internship abroad are credited as part of the degree.

 

Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is a combination of attitude, skills and actions needed to find and take advantage of possibilities. Our goal is to encourage entrepreneurial mindset. You will improve skills needed for running your own company, create entrepreneurship that is based on higher education, and renew and develop existing businesses.

Tiesitkö, että ollaksesi raviohjastaja, sinun täytyy käydä C-ajolupakurssi? 🐎

Johanna suoritti hevosalan liiketalouden harjoittelunsa Suomen Hippokselle ja oli mukana mm. Kärryillä-lehden toimituksessa, verkko-oppimisympäristön Hipposakatemian teossa, sekä pääsi järjestämään koulutuspäiviä. 🐴

Hän myös koordinoi C- ja P-ajolupakursseja, jotta tulevat raviurheilijat saavat nostettua taitonsa ratsujen ansaitsemalle tasolla. 🏇

Kiinnostaako hevosalan tradenomin koulutus, mutta et tiedä, mitä kaikkea hevosalan liiketoiminnassa voisi tehdä? Tie liiketalouden ammattilaiseksi - blogissa on muutamia esimerkkejä alan hommista. Myös Johannan harjoittelustaan kirjoittama blogikirjoitus löytyy sieltä.

Ps. Nippelitietona vielä loppuun, että P-ajolupakurssi on poniajolupakurssi, jonka voi suorittaa 9-18-vuotiaana. 🤩

Sakun harjoittelusta ei vauhtia ja jännitystä puuttunut! Hän suoritti harjoittelunsa keväällä 2021 Arctic Rally Finland - ja FIA Rally Star - tapahtumissa panemia-ajan keskellä. 🚗💨

Miten onnistui 1800 hengen tapahtuman järjestäminen korona-aikana ja mitä kaikkea Saku pääsi FIA Rally Starin Suomen karsintakilpailun kilpailunjohtajana tekemään?

Päätä huimaavasta harjoitteluajasta pääsee lukemaan lisää Tie liiketalouden ammatilaiseksi - blogista. ➡Linkki biossa.

Mistä tunnistaa huippumyyjän?🤝

Matti suoritti harjoittelunsa erään suuren huonekaluliikeketjun Hämeenlinnan myymälässä. Hän teki loistavaa myyntityötä ja hänen myyntilukunsa olivat harjoittelun lopussa liikeketjun sesonkityöläisten parhaimmistoa.🔥🔥🔥

Matin mietteitä harjoittelusta ja hyvän myyjän ominaisuuksista pääset nyt lukemaan Tie liiketalouden ammattilaiseksi - blogista.

This week we had huge exam-like voluntary programming test. Almost all our 1st year students participated. There were about 100 students in Hämeenlinna University Center auditoriums and about 100 students online in Zoom. It was also the first time we used a service that automatically checks if the students code was correct. So, everyone knew immediately after the test, how it went. Overall, the coding was so intense that even our servers had troubles handling all the test cases! ... See MoreSee Less
