IT Technology

Academy Profession Programme

For those who dream of working with software, electronics and networks of the future as well as with technologies that make everyday electronics intelligent

Full Degree Programme

Do you dream about working with software, electronics, network and technology?

As a student at the IT Technology programme, you will e.g. acquire knowledge about Internet of Things (IoT) – the technology that makes everyday technology smart and intelligent.
You will learn how data is stored, processed, and presented, and you will gain an insight into how data is able to control physical systems.

During the programme, we will work within these general fields of study:

  • Hardware
  • Network technology
  • Software
  • Project management

These fields of study will be consistent throughout your education. You will get to work in depth within all four fields, and learn the importance of creating an overview and an understating of the system as a whole. 

 

Programme structure

Our programme has a duration of two years. Afterwards you have the opportunity to continue on a 1.5-year long top-up programme giving you the equivalent of a professional bachelor’s degree.

During the first two semesters (duration of a semester is six months), you will work interdisciplinary and learn the technologies within the whole eco system of Internet of Things.

The third semester consists of elective courses that allows you to tone your education and specialize within different areas of expertise.

The fourth and final semester consists of an internship at a local company as well as the final exam project.

Optional courses

During your education, you will have plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in the fields that have your interest. Especially during the third semester, where you can choose between a wide range of elective courses.
The electives allow you to tone your IT technology programme in a way that gives you a profile that matches your interests and your future dream job.

The courses offered could be:

  • Advanced electronics
  • Data collection and data storage
  • Complex embedded systems
  • Mathematics and physics used in electronics
  • Network, router and switch configuration

How does a week at the programme look like?

A typical week consists of project courses that will supplement and build upon each other.
You should be aware that the IT Technology programme is a full-time occupation, and a 40-hour a week work load is to be expected.

Internship

Your internship starts on the 4th semester and has a duration of three months. You will have to find an approved internship on your own, which has to meet certain requirements.

If you do not have a particular internship in mind, we can help you find one. Our internship partners are often involved in the education at EAL by giving presentations on current subjects, hosting company visits giving you insights into their daily work routines or by running projects of different magnitudes.

The internship and the final exam project is often used by our partners to assess the student with regards to future employment.

International possibilities

International profile

As a student at UCL University College you can get an international profile during your study. Depending on your chosen study programme you can go on short international modules, study a semester or do your internship abroad, and participate in international projects.

International knowledge and experience is very useful for you and our society. You will get important insights into other countries' culture, which will make you very attractive on the Danish and international job market.

Going abroad is an adventure, which will equip you with skills and experiences for life. You will develop your self both professionally and personally, and you will get friends and a network abroad.

Practical experience

One of the things that characterises the study programmes at UCL University College is that you will get a very practice-oriented education. You will e.g. work on practical cases in class, and work on projects with real businesses. However the most practice-oriented factor during the study is the internship, which is an integrated part on all studies at UCL.

The internship is your chance to use and test your knowledge and theory 'in the real world'. The internship also gives you the opportunity to test what exactly you want to do with your education when you graduate.

When you need to find your first job as a graduate you will not only have theoretical knowledge, but also important experience on how it is to work in your specific field of interest.

A lot of IT Technologists who have specialised in electronics gain employment in companies that produce, sell, or maintain consumer, or industrial electronics such as radio, TV, radar or navigational equipment, measuring instruments, power supplies, electro medical devices or IT equipment.

IT technologists who have specialised in network technology will often find employment within the technical/technological field. They will design and maintain large and small networks as well as servers, security and databases. The field of expertise lies within network design and consultancy in connection with the planning, implementation and maintenance of modern network solutions.
