Degree structure and studies

The Master's Programme in Electrical Engineering is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.

The programme includes core, advanced specialisation, minor and elective studies as well as a Master's thesis.

Core studies, 29 ECTS credits, include studies in mathematics, energy efficiency, and technology and the society, as well as laboratory assignments.

In advanced specialisation studies, min. 40 ECTS credits, students select one of the following:

  • Solar Economy
  • Control and Automation
  • Control and Communication
  • Electromechanics
  • Power Electronics Design
  • Electrical Drives

For students who have selected an advanced specialisation in Solar Economy, minor studies, min. 20 ECTS credits, can be selected freely from the minor subjects provided by LUT, but bio-energy technology or environmental responsibility are recommended. Students may also complete their minor studies at another university in Finland or abroad. For any other advanced specialisation field, minor studies are not compulsory.

Elective studies can be chosen from any discipline at LUT to complement your studies.

The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is an advanced research project completed during the fourth semester. The Master's thesis requires approximately six months of full-time work.

You can find the most recent information about courses, teaching schedules and degree structures in the LUT study guide 2021/2022.

Double degree studies for students from partner universities

Students from partner universities are able to study as double degree students at LUT. Students admitted to the double degree programme receive a degree certificate from two universities after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities.

In the double degree studies, students choose the electricity market and solar energy, electric drives or control engineering as their specialisation.

The Electrical Engineering programme's double degree partner universities are the following:

  • Moscow Power Engineering Institute, Russia
  • Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnical University, Russia
  • St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University, Russia
  • St. Petersburg Mining University, Russia
