Bachelor's Programme in Software and Systems Engineering

Software and technology have become increasingly important in our daily lives.

With the aid of digitalisation, societies are renewing their structures and operations, which offers countless opportunities for IT experts.

Programming skills give you the tools to solve great societal challenges. Challenges can be related to, for example, digitalisation, reducing energy consumption, the research and development needs of the business world or guiding consumer behaviour towards sustainability. Societal or organisational problems may also be solved by introducing a new software service, product or system to provide assistance and information to the people around us.

Software engineering is for people who are interested in problem solving and want to make things faster, less costly and more efficient in the future. You will produce solutions that take into account the needs of both individuals and large companies.

The Bachelor's Programme in Software and Systems Engineering 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 Software and Systems Engineering 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 software engineering, you can continue your studies directly in the Master's programmes at LUT in the field of software engineering:

"The experience LUT offers has been much greater than I ever expected. All the administrative and academic staff are friendly and accommodating, always ready to cater to the needs of their students."
