The Bachelor's Programme in Mechanical Engineering from LUT University is a unique, international double degree programme developed in cooperation with Hebei University of Technology (HEBUT) in China. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


As a mechanical engineer, you can design and manufacture a variety of consumer goods as well as machinery and equipment needed in industry.

Mechanical engineering studies give you a comprehensive overview of modern product design and production techniques. You will learn to utilise digital and virtual environments in design as well as take into account the principles of the entire product life cycle and circular economy. You will also understand business principles, marketing and customer needs in product development.

Mechanical engineering is for you if you are inventive, creative and passionate about developing solutions that promote sustainable development and the respect for natural resources.

Students admitted to the Mechanical Engineering programme from 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.

Career prospects

There is a great demand in the labour market for mechanical engineering experts.

Mechanical engineering degree opens the door to a wide range of tasks: you can work in the metal or automotive industries, for example, but also in industries related to food, healthcare, energy production, transport or climate change mitigation.

You can work in management and expert positions, as a design or production engineer, or in the development of consumer goods, machinery, equipment and their parts. With a Master's degree in mechanical engineering one can also research and develop manufacturing methods and apply them to production.

Work may also involve training, research and marketing tasks, for example in industrial projects or in one's own company. Master's graduates in mechanical engineering have gone on to become:

  • heads of virtual design firms
  • design managers of international energy companies
  • production managers of pulp and paper plants
  • mechanical engineers
  • quality control managers in the metal industry

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Studies in this Bachelor's programme will give you a comprehensive overview of modern product design and production techniques. The main themes of your studies are production technology, welded metal structures and mechatronics. In a mechatronic device, motion-based functions are controlled by electronics and information technology. For example, bottle return machines in stores work this way.
  • Teaching is based on the basic foundations of science, i.e., mathematics and physics, which are applied to solve various technical problems. The computer-assisted learning environment is modern and emphasises creativity as well as innovation.
  • You will learn to understand the physical operating principles of machines, i.e. the use of energy, the strength of materials, to know different materials, the most modern production systems and manufacturing methods.
