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, specialisation, minor and elective studies.

Core studies (min. 19 ECTS credits) include studies in energy efficiency, and technology and the society, as well as laboratory assignments.

In specialisation studies (min. 70 ECTS credits), students select two or three of the following elective modules:
•    Electricity Market 22-23 ECTS credits
•    Electrical Drives 25 ECTS credits
•    Power Electronics 19 ECTS credits
•    Design of Electrical Machines 24 ECTS credits
•    Electric Conversion Systems 20 ECTS credits
•    Solar Economy 18-21 ECTS credits
•    Control and Automation 23 ECTS credits
•    Embedded Systems 20 ECTS credits

The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialisation studies. The thesis is an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. Students complete it during their fourth semester.

Minor studies (min. 20 ECTS credits) can be selected freely from the minor subjects provided by LUT, or they can be completed in another domestic or foreign university.

Elective studies (to attain the full 120 ECTS credits) may include any courses offered by LUT.

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

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:

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