Internationalisation at the core of LUT University


Six high-quality Bachelor’s programmes in English

The new Bachelor's Programme in Industrial Engineering and Management provides essential knowledge and capabilities to become an expert in combining business and technology. The programme increases understanding of organisations' business, operations, and personnel in a contemporary business environment.

The Bachelor’s programmes are arranged on LUT’s campus either in Lappeenranta or Lahti. In addition, four of the programmes – Electrical Engineering, Energy Technology, Mechanical Engineering, and Software and Systems Engineering – are carried out in cooperation with LUT’s partner university in China, Hebei University of Technology (double degree programmes).
