  • This BSc is taught in English.
  • This is a Tekniikan kandidaatti (TkK), Bachelor of Science in Technology (B.Sc. Tech.) degree amounting to 180 ECTS.
  • A lower university degree gives eligibility to apply for Master's studies.
  • The BSc education is arranged so that full-time students can complete the degree in three academic years.

Degree Structure

The BSc in technology 180 ECTS consists of

  • common obligatory general studies of 88 ECTS, include introductory course as well as courses in mathematics, physics, engineering design, mechanics, materials, control systems and programming.
  • language and communication studies of 10-19 ECTS in Chinese, Finnish and English.
  • intermediate specialisation studies of 50 ECTS of mechatronics, robotics, production engineering, FE-analysis, machine design and manufacturing. The specialisation studies include a Bachelor's thesis and seminar totalling 12 ECTS.
  • minor min. of 20 ECTS, in energy economics; sustainability science; practical engineering, innovation and entrepreneurship; and Chinese business, culture and technology.

  • elective studies.

This is a double degree programme, and the graduates will receive a degree certificate from two universities, Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and Hebei University of Technology (HEBUT), after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities. Non-Chinese speaking students must pass HSK level III language test to receive a degree from HEBUT. HSK test is China’s official language test for non-native speakers of Chinese.
