Degree: Technology and Engineering Science (LESKBSc)
Period: 2023-2024

Learning outcomes:

At the end of the programme, students will be able to:

• describe the physical phenomena related to engineering problems and solve relevant engineering problems
• assess the feasibility and sustainability of different technologies from the multi-disciplinary perspectives of environmental technology, energy technology, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering
• articulate the operating principles of energy supply, storage and distribution technologies
• explain material selection and design for a variety of manufacturing processes
• appraise products, processes, systems and their societal roles using comprehensive sustainability criteria
• name and describe the most common applications and operating principles of electrical engineering as well as explain electricity networks, safety, measurements and control systems
• utilise teamwork and language skills relevant to international industry
• conceptualise, build, develop and present a basic innovative product or service.



- 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
- language and communication studies
- intermediate specialisation studies of electrical engineering, energy technology, environmental technology or mechanical engineering
- elective studies.

General studies
include introductory course as well as courses in engineering mathematics and physics, engineering mechanics, engineering thermodynamics, technical documentation and 3 D modelling, electrical drives, renewable energy engineering and circular economy.

Language and Communication studies

English for Professional Development (Technology), 4 ECTS and Academic Writing, 3 ECTS are obligatory to all. The rest of the L&C studies the students will choose based on their previous educational background and language skills.

Intermediate specialisation studies

During the second and third academic year, students will specialise in one of four fields: Energy Technology, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Technology or Mechanical Engineering.
- Energy technology specialist courses include basics of power plant engineering, heat transfer, and laboratory work.
- Electrical engineering specialist courses include introduction to embedded systems, digital design, and laboratory work.
- Environmental technology specialist courses include environmental labelling, and sustainable cities.
- Mechanical engineering specialist courses include mechatronics, robotics, production engineering and basics of FE-analysis.
The specialisation studies include a Bachelor's thesis and seminar totalling 12 ECTS.
