New Master’s programmes

The chemical engineering Master’s Programme in Water Technology will shift from distance to blended learning next academic year. The programme will focus on the most recent technologies and scientific breakthroughs in water technology. Its contact teaching will take place in Mikkeli.

The energy technology Master’s Programme in Sustainable Energy Systems will replace Bioenergy Systems and will focus on the design and utilisation of clean and efficient energy production. The programme will implement contact teaching and will be held in Lappeenranta.

LUT’s new mechanical engineering Master’s Programme in Materials Science and Technology is unique in Finland. At the core of the programme is materials selection, which is a key issue in the in-service performance, visual appearance and economic efficiency of any product. This is a contact teaching programme on the Lappeenranta campus.

The new software engineering Master’s Programme in Digital Systems and Service Development will take place in Lahti. The contact teaching programme will focus on the development of digital service systems and adopting a service-oriented mindset.
