IT College (ITC) wants to offer opportunities to study to all the talented youth regardless of their financial means. More than 15 % of ITC students receive full scholarships. A scholarship programme is established to a selected number of students and tailored to the needs of the donor companies. The highly competitive public competitions are managed by the EITF.
Considering the very practical and hands-on oriented study at the ITC, in widening the scope of technologies and applications taught, participation in setting up laboratories (hardware, software) and study literature is welcome.
ITC aims to support the return of IT specialists to teaching. Talented students are encouraged to assist the lecturers. IT companies may sponsor specific courses in the curriculum. ITC strives to deepen the involvement of ICT companies in sharing the practical knowledge and first hand experiences of their trade.
ITC offers its students internship opportunities that apply directly to their field of study. The Internship Exchange of the ITC is designed to match the ITC student’s educational goals with hosting organisations needs. The feedback from interns and participating companies helps the ITC in its continuing review and development of the curriculum. If you are interested in offering an internship opportunity to a student, please fill out the form.
Corporate certificate programs
Incorporating established certification programs (e.g. Cisco, Oracle, Microsoft) into the curriculum, the students earn credit points and professional certificates at the same time.
IT College offers its students and the general public a variety of extra-curricular seminars and public lectures, with the aim to widen their perspective and to introduce the latest trends and technologies in the ICT sector.
Internationalising the ITC
One of the futures biggest challenges is opening the ITC up to the students from abroad, primarily from the Baltic Sea region. This involves developing English language curriculum, recruiting international students, bringing in visiting lecturers from abroad and extending the facilities.
The ITC was awarded ERASMUS University Charter in April 2004. Since then, the College has been actively involved in ERASMUS student and staff mobility programmes. At present, the College has bilateral agreements with partner institutions in Denmark, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Poland and Portugal.
Increasing the efficiency, making the college international and meeting the high standards of quality education requires new facilities for delivering curriculum and extra-curricular activities. Greatest need is for large lecture halls, lab space and social areas.
