As part of the MARIT project, LUT is providing Open University courses that support the urgent need to increase hydrogen technology skills through materials and manufacturing engineering. The project is funded by the service centre for continuous learning and employment, and therefore the participation to courses is free of charge to everyone.

Through the studies, participants will gain an overview of the different factors affecting climate change. In line with LUT's objectives, the studies will support the promotion of sustainable development principles in production companies.

You can choose between MOOCs on sustainable development principles and applications, or individual Master's courses, or you can end up completing a micro-credential.

The studies are best suited to all those interested in university studies who have a bachelor's or master's degree in engineering, but they are also open to others interested in the subject.

You will learn using distance learning materials and online environments. If you are close to the Lappeenranta campus, you can also join our campus-based practice groups. Possible laboratory exercises will be carried out as face-to-face teaching in high-tech facilities in Lappeenranta.

English language skills are required, as the course material is mainly in English. Both Finnish and English are used in the teaching, depending on the target group.

A total of 55 credits are offered in eleven different courses, plus 6 credits in MOOCs.
