The double degree programme covers both the Master's level and Doctoral level studies: The joint Master's Programme in Information and Communication Techonology leading to the Finnish degree Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.) (diplomi-insinööri) and the Chinese degree Master of Engineering, M.Eng; The joint Doctoral Programme in Information and Communication Technology, Dr.Sc. (Tech.) also Ph.D. (Tech.) (tekniikantohtori in Finnish), or Doctor of Philosophy, Ph.D. (filosofian tohtori in Finnish) and to the Chinese degree Doctor of Science.

The Programme consists of four study modules: (i) a mandatory course module in an ICT major; (ii) an elective course module; (iii) a capstone project module; and (iv) a Master's thesis. The total amount of credits is 120 ECTS.

The emphasis in the Programme has been in Embedded Electronics. In future, the aim is to extended the Programme to include more disciplines. All courses will be given in English which is also used in a project and Thesis work.
