Bachelor's Programme in Energy Technology

Energy – electricity and heat – will always be needed. Graduate engineers in sustainable energy technology will ensure the safe, economical and sustainable production of electricity and heat as well as the development of related technologies.

There are roughly three scenarios for the development of future energy solutions: renewable energy sources (hydro, solar, wind, wave and bioenergy), safe nuclear power, and carbon capture and use. These represent the core of energy engineering. By studying energy technology, you will build a career in pioneering technologies. Energy technology is suitable for those interested in technology who want to utilise mathematics and natural sciences as tools.

This programme focuses on the most efficient, environmentally friendly production and distribution of a basic element in our daily well-being: energy and its related technologies.

The main themes of the studies are the efficient production and use of energy and environmental friendliness. Your training will be based on three key areas of expertise in energy technology: physical phenomena related to energy technology, such as policies that affect the shape and magnitude of energy; energy conversion from one form to another; and machinery and equipment for energy conversion.

At LUT University, energy technology research and training are based on strong expertise in power plant technology and energy management. We also offer unique nuclear engineering training with a focus on nuclear safety. The emphases of our degree programme have been selected on the basis of the skills required in the working world.

The Bachelor's Programme in Energy Technology is a unique, international double degree programme developed in cooperation with Hebei University of Technology (HEBUT) in China. Students admitted to the Bachelor's Programme in Energy Technology at LUT University will receive a degree certificate from two universities after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities. You will complete the entire degree in Lahti, Finland.

After completing a bachelor's degree in energy technology, you can continue your studies directly in the Master's programmes at LUT in the field of energy technology:
