Each year about twenty talented students from all around the world are selected to complete their master's studies in campuses of University of Eastern Finland (Joensuu, Kuopio), or at Lappeenranta University of Technology. One of the aims of the program is that students can be employed by a Finnish ICT-company during the second year of the studies. Strong research profiles of the involved departments allow research oriented students to actively participate and obtain training for future PhD studies.
The basic admission requirements are similar to those from the previous years: IMPIT accepts students with BSc or equivalent studies completed in information technologies, computer science or related field. Since the program is taught entirely in English, a perfect knowledge of English is a must.
Please notice that there are no tuition fees for admitted IMPIT students. An estimate of the cost of living and studies for the whole duration of the studies (~18 months) is about 9000 euro. We usually award scholarships to excellent students who show their performance while studying in IMPIT.
The application form and instructions are available at: http://impit.org/index.php?page=admission-2010---2012. The deadline for applications is 16.4.2010.
