Career prospects

After graduation, you will be able to pursue different careers in industry, science and research.

You will have career prospects in such areas as the development of information processing systems, project planning, and management in ICT companies.

The employment rate of computational engineering graduates has consistently been high – in addition to engineering positions, computational engineering experts are needed in bioscience, medicine, environmental protection, meteorology, digital media production, and gaming.

Employees are needed especially for research, development, expert, and design positions. The work may entail e.g. product and process development, equipment and software design, setting up new technologies, and applying computational models.
Jobs have also been created through spin-off companies and close cooperation with industries.

Jobs for computational engineering graduates:

  • Data scientist in any organisation handling data
  • Designer of wind farms
  • Weather and climate analyst
  • Project manager in an ICT company
  • Developer of simulation models in a wind power company
  • Designer of machine vision systems
  • Materials developer for a solar cell company
  • Risk analyst in financing
  • Actuary in an insurance company
  • Epidemiologist
  • Researcher in a Finnish or foreign university or research institute

Computational engineering graduates are in demand. The wide-ranging degree fits a number of jobs, and graduates are often recruited straight from university.

LUT graduates have been employed by companies such as Rovio, Bintec, Finnos, SyncronTech, TuuliSaimaa, Vionice, PintaWorks, Nokia, Eniram, and insurance companies and shared ICT services of government agencies.
