Cutting Edge Research and Quality Education

The quality policy refers to the following principles governing the activity of LUT University:

  • University's activities and management are based on continuous assessment and development.
  • University fulfils its mission in accordance with its values and strategy in ways that promote the well-being of the staff and students.
  • University maintains a quality management system which ensures that the university is able to operate in a transparent, reliable, efficient and quality-oriented way, taking the needs of customers and other stakeholders and ethical principles into consideration
  • Rector is responsible on the quality management system, but each member of the university community bears quality management responsibilities according to his/her post.

The university's quality management system has passed the Finnish Education Evaluation Council (FINEEC) external audit twice, in 2009 and in 2015. The audit is valid for six years, until April 2021.

International Accreditation

Several of LUT's degree programmes have passed international accreditation. Through international accreditation, LUT strengthens the quality assurance of the education, as well as international comparability of the qualifications.
