Learning outcomes

The main themes of your studies are production technology, the design of demanding metal structures and robotic welding or the design of mechatronic equipment.

At the end of your studies, you will be able to build, measure and test a variety of sustainable technical solutions, both in practice and virtually.

You will gain a wide range of skills to lead people and things in an expert and managerial role in an international work environment. Additionally, you will learn how to start a product development-oriented business. You become familiar with leadership already during your undergraduate studies: leadership skills are practiced through a learning by doing approach under the guidance of teachers and mentors. In M.Sc. studies, competence is deepened through the operating principles and methods of effective management.

This diverse training provides great preparation for the international labor market. The technology industry is Finland's most important export sector and the machinery and metal industry its largest industry. Successful products in the machinery and metal industries include cruise ships, marine and power plant engines, elevators, cranes and hoists, electric and hybrid cars, and state-of-the-art commercial machines.

LUT's mechanical engineering represents the cutting edge of industry. At LUT, you have a unique opportunity to implement modern robotics-based automation applications. For example, an ongoing project is developing artificial intelligence for work machines. With the help of power calculation, the machine can predict the future. With this "consciousness", the machine is able to select and execute as smooth and appropriate movements as possible in its work.
