From the beginning of January 2017, there are four multidisciplinary doctoral programmes, corresponding to each of the doctoral training committees. Each doctoral student belongs to one of these four doctoral programmes. The main role of the doctoral programmes is to organize the field-specific training.
The Information Technology and Electrical Engineering Doctoral Programme (Tieto- ja sähkötekniikan tohtoriohjelma) corresponds the Doctoral training committee for information technology and electrical engineering (Tieto- ja sähkötekniikan tohtorikoulutustoimikunta).

What's new in 2017
The Doctoral training committee for Technology and Natural Sciences was divided into two parts: one with the same name, another the Doctoral training committee for Information Technology and Electrical Engineering. The nine doctoral programmes were reconstructed to four new programmes, corresponding four focus areas the the University of Oulu. The Infotech Oulu Doctoral Programme became the Information Technology and Electrical Engineering Doctoral Programme, without any major changes to the research areas it represents.
Funded doctoral student positions
The Infotech Oulu Doctoral Programme was granted 20 positions for 2014-2017 and 12 positions for 2016-2019. These positions was given to the research groups of Infotech Oulu Doctoral Programme.
Positions starting in 2018 will be granted to the research projects selected to Infotech Oulu for 2018 - 2021 based on the call for research projects in strategic focus area Digital solutions in sensing and interactions.
