Studying at the LUT School of Engineering Science

Technological development and solutions to environmental problems lean heavily on expertise in mathematics and natural sciences.

Studies at the LUT School of Engineering Science combine natural sciences and expertise in engineering with numerous practical applications. Studies are based on the needs of industry and meet with current global challenges by educating experts in a sustainable future, who will cater to different branches of business and industry.

The School's studies focus on cleaner and more energy-efficient production methods and the development of new industrial and service applications.

During Bachelor's studies, students can focus on either chemical engineering or computational engineering. The School offers three Master's degree programmes and one Doctoral programme.

Bachelor's degree programmes

Master's degree programmes taught in Finnish

Master's degree programmes taught in English

Doctoral programme

The LUT's specific strengths in chemical technology are separation techniques and expertise in their numerous applications. The LUT was the first university to receive the Nordic quality label for its chemical engineering programme.

In the field of computational science, the LUT stands out from its competition with its practical expertise based on real life problems. The School's computational science degree programme is part of the Academy of Finland's Centres of Excellence programme, and it has strong cooperation relationships with many European countries, as well as Russia, Asia, Africa, North America and Australia.

Master's and Doctoral graduates from the degree programmes in chemical engineering and computational engineering are in great demand: employment statistics have been uniformly high - people are needed especially in research, development and design in the different sectors of business and industry. Jobs have also been created in spin-off companies and through close cooperation with business and industry.
