Cutting Edge Research and Quality Education

The quality policy refers to the following principles governing the activity of LUT University:

  • University fulfils its mission in accordance with its values and strategy in ways that promote the well-being of the staff and students.
  • University's activities and administration are based on continuous assessment and development.
  • University maintains a quality assurance system which ensures that the university is able to operate in a responsible, transparent, efficient and quality-oriented way, taking the needs of internal and external stakeholders into consideration.
  • The rector is responsible for the quality management system, but each member of the university community bears quality management responsibilities related to their job.

The university's quality management system has passed the Finnish Education Evaluation Council (FINEEC) external audit three times, in 2009, 2015 and in 2021. The audit is valid for six years, until June 2027.

International Accreditation

Several of LUT's degree programmes have passed international accreditation. Through international accreditation, LUT strengthens the quality assurance of the education, as well as international comparability of the qualifications.

Accreditation is a guarantee of high quality, international recognition and continuing development of the qualifications awarded at LUT.
