LUT University is the land of the curious


We are a community where curious people inspire curious people. The curious dive deep into their passion, and develop their thinking daily. Without curiosity, we cannot change the world. A curious person experiments, fails, and succeeds faster than others. 

We address global challenges that matter and that others may consider impossible to solve. We do things differently. We look at things from unexpected perspectives, we question, and we search for solutions. 


Clean energy, water and air are life-giving resources for which we seek new solutions with our expertise in technology, business and social sciences. We help society and businesses in their sustainable renewal. Our campuses are located in Lappeenranta and Lahti, but our state of mind can be achieved anywhere.

We have served as a forerunner – combining technology and business – ever since our inception in 1969. Our international community is comprised of 8 000 students and experts engaged in scientific research and academic education.
