FrostBit Software Lab (previously pLab) operates under the Digital Solutions competence group together with the ICT engineering education at the Lapland UAS Rovaniemi campus.

The lab plays a pivotal role for the ICT engineering education as an R&D and learning environment where students can collaborate with the staff, study and have hands-on experience of ICT engineering.


XR & Game Technologies includes planning, designing and creating state-of-the-art visualizations, simulations, games & XR solutions.

Web & Mobile Development & Complex Data Systems includes obtaining, transforming and building complex data systems integrated with web and mobile applications.



FrostBit Software Lab is leading and co-running different EU-funded projects, for instance, in forestry, mining industry, built environment, tourism, healthcare and mobility & transport.

Besides projects funded by the EU, FrostBit provides R&D services to the local companies and businesses.

FrostBit is jointly collaborating with the degree programs at the Lapland UAS, Faculty of Arts and Design at the University of Lapland and REDU vocational college. Lapland UAS has established partnerships with many companies and organizations and the lab is cooperating with digitalization with many regional, national and international partners.




The laboratory was established all the way back in 1999 as the first Finnish virtual reality programming laboratory, and it was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The major R&D focus of FrostBit is on entertaining & educational games, simulations, extended reality, web & mobile computing and complex data systems.



The diverse team of FrostBit consists of software engineers, visual artists specialized in 3D modeling, graphic design, UI and UX design, web developers and communications. Some of the team members are working on teaching and projects simultaneously.



FrosBit offers great possibilities for students to have hands-on experience of software engineering and programming. Students can complete their internship, work in projects, gain ECTS and complete graduate thesis at FrostBit. In addition, international students and exchange students have been part of our projects and working with us.
