Electrical engineering is for you if you are not afraid of challenges, you are interested in how things work and you look forward to being part of the energy transition. Interest in the natural sciences is also an important feature: in electrical engineering, you apply mathematics and physics to explore different phenomena. As an expert in electrical engineering, you will have a great opportunity to contribute to the technological revolution and an electronic future.
At LUT University , you will apply your skills to reform the electronic society. With modern technology, for example, solar energy can be used to produce fuel, and people's well-being is promoted through various electronic applications. In addition, digitalisation and the Energy Internet bring new opportunities for utilising the electricity grid.
Students admitted to the Electrical Engineering programme at LUT University will receive a degree certificate from two universities after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities. You will complete the entire degree in Lappeenranta, Finland.
After completing the Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, you will have a direct study right to continue your studies in the Master's Programme in Electrical Engineering at LUT.
Emerging energy systems, energy-efficient technology, smart grids, electrifying transport and the electricity market guarantee graduates of electrical engineering work now and in the future.
New experts are needed for product development, project engineering, sales and marketing, and management positions. Your job responsibilities may include, for example, the design, product development, technical sales or production management of electrotechnical equipment and its production.
There is also a growing need in the market for electrical trading engineers and electrical work managers. As private solar and wind power plants become more common, power plants are also experiencing a time of change. Thus, graduates of electrical engineering will have enough work in both industry and municipal positions.
Master's graduates in electrical engineering have gone on to become:
- upper level management in the electricity sector
- testing engineers
- automation engineers
- electricity grid designers for distribution companies
- production development managers for electronics companies
- managing directors of electricity companies
- design engineers
