The curriculum has been planned so that the student completes about 60 ECTS credits per academic year and about 30 ECTS credits per semester

Due to the timing of optional and elective courses, credit accumulation per semester / academic year may vary.

The Kajaani University of Applied Sciences Information Systems competence area consists of degree education provision in Business Information Processing (Bachelor of Business Administration) and in Information and Communications Technology (Bachelor of Engineering) and it is part of the CEMIS center of expertise which amongst other objectives, aims to improve education, research and development, competitiveness, attractiveness, quality and impact. The Information and Communications Technology and Business Information Technology degrees contain certain similarities in educational content that will be delivered through jointly organised studies.

Students will be selected based on their study success, special interests and wishes to undertake either the Data Center Solutions or the Game Production major option during their first autumn.

GAMES
Within Advanced (major) Game studies students may choose from the following modules: game production and design, game graphics, game programming or game soundscapes. Game programming also prepares students for traditional programming work. Students will be able to work e.g. as software designers, game programmers, game designers, producers, game artists or instructors.
