LUT in Lahti since 1996
LUT University, at the time going by the name Lappeenranta University of Technology, launched permanent activities in Lahti in August 1996. Two decades later, the Lahti unit had developed into the university’s second campus, and today, the Lappeenranta–Lahti University of Technology LUT employs as many as 170 experts in Lahti.
All of LUT's schools have a foothold in Lahti. They conduct research in areas such as sustainability science, biorefining, software engineering, knowledge management, and industrial engineering and management.
The campus environment represents a new era in learning and research; it is located in a renovated old factory – a facility that LUT shares with the LAB University of Applied Sciences, which is also part of the university group LUT Universities. The campus brings together roughly 6 000 students, over 1 000 employees and 20 business enterprises.
LUT is a significant actor in research and corporate collaboration in the Lahti area. In 2020 alone, the university collaborated with 122 companies.
As a result of collaboration with ANDRITZ Oy, LUT is building a new fibre technology research centre on its Lahti campus.
