Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) is an innovative and multidisciplinary higher education institution situated in Finland. Studies at TUAS are working life oriented, combining theoretical studies with professional skills. At the core of the teaching is Innovation Pedagogy, a new approach to learning developed at TUAS. Innovation Pedagogy refers to an approach to learning and teaching that corresponds to the needs of working life while emphasizing RDI expertise. In the field of applied research, Turku University of Applied Sciences represents the top tier in the country. TUAS coordinates or acts as a partner in over 200 RDI projects yearly. It is based on experimenting, sharing know-how and combining different approaches. Students choosing to study ICT in Finland would have the chance to learn about IoT, Computer Sciences, Programming, etc at Turku University of Applied Sciences.

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. If students study ICT in Finland, they are likely to acquire a competitive edge in the Finnish labor market and increase chances at being employed after graduation.

FINEEC (Finnish Education Evaluation Centre)  has awarded the institution with a quality label. The quality system of Turku University of Applied Sciences fulfills the national criteria set for the quality management of higher education institutions, and corresponds to the European quality assurance principles and recommendations for higher education institutions. Moreover, the Ministry of Education and Culture closely oversees the quality of teaching in all higher education institutions in Finland, including Turku University of Applied Sciences.
