Advisable areas are programming, system analysis, and design or similar development and maintenance tasks. PC- and network support tasks as well as computer operator's work are also suitable.
Teaching and learning methods
Named work placement counsellors guide the student during the work placement. A work placement counsellor is appointed both by the work placement organisation and by Haaga-Helia. The student attends the meetings to be called by the Haaga-Helia’s work placement counsellor prior/during and/or after the work placement, writes a work placement report and hands it in for evaluation to Haaga-Helia's work placement counsellor. In addition, the student answers the questions of the work placement feedback on Blackboard. This information is available to all students who want some help for looking for the work placement opportunity.
