Courses: Spring 2012 20.12.2011

Hello everyone!

Busy Fall 2011 has come to end, and holidays are soon here.

Below is a list of IS-courses available at Spring. The list is, and I beg your pardon, a preliminary. Some changes, mainly additions should be on their way.
I hope that you'll are able to plan your 3rd period of this academic year. If any problems, please contact me.

How to sign to a non-IT-department course?

The integration of IS-courses between IT department (university) and TSE (Turku School of Economics) is not yet ready.
There has been some changes of systems, but the access to departments and various sets of courses has not been manageable yet.

Therefore some students can register through nettiopsu to these courses, but as far as I know, most of Work Informatics (and "older" tjt-students at IT department) cannot acces to these courses.

The official procedure to sign to these courses not on your nettiopsu list is the JOOPAS deal. Check it out from  However, for the moment, we prefer that you send a short, clear message to the course responsible (professor, lecturer, etc.) that you want to sign to his/her course for 3rd period. Include you name and student number and department (Work Informatics, Dept. of IT). Then, the course responsible could undertake the JOOPAS deal to this set of students.

Hopefully, we can get this fixed by the 4th period. Sorry about the inconveniences caused by messy systems.

NOTE! The registration to TSE courses ends at 26th of December. Please sign before that, if possible.

PS. We are already trying to get all WI students updated with all advanced IS courses at TSE. If this succeeds, then you can sign to these courses via nettiopsu.
