The main objective is to learn some basic principles, methods, and practices in using IT (information technology) tools and techniques to analyze data, support decision making, and enhance business performance by managing devices, operating systems, applications, and other parts of IT in a unified and secure way. This includes the following learning outcomes:
- ability to investigate the application of modern management;
- ability to identify, locate, analyse, and obtain required data;
- ability to conduct searches of literature, to consult and critically use databases and other sources of information, to carry out simulation in order to pursue detailed investigations, and research of complex technical issues;


The course contents is based on some of the basic principles of managing IT in organisations and partly on your own choice depending on the degree programme you are in. The course is divided in two parts: 1) programming assignment and 2) special assignment depending on the degree programme (artificial intelligence and data analytics, cyber security, full stack software development, and robotics).

Location and time

Online (Teams) and f2f (Dynamo building); one or two sessions per month.
