Degree: Technology and Engineering Science (LESKBSc)
Period: 2021-2022

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 of 101 ECTS
- language and communication studies of 15 ECTS
- intermediate specialisation studies of 64 ECTS of electrical engineering, energy technology, environmental technology or mechanical engineering
- there are no minor studies or free 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 of 15 ECTS

In the obligatory L&C studies, options A, B and C are alternative to each other:
A) Finnish Culture and Language, 5 ECTS OR
B) Svenska i arbetslivet (teknik), 2 ECTS and Työelämän viestintä (tekniikka), 3 ECTS, a total of ECTS. Option B is obligatory for those Finnish students, who have studied Swedish in general upper secondary school OR
C) Työelämän viestintä (tekniikka), 3 ECTS and 2 ECTS of any other language than English or basic Finnish. Option C is obligatory for those Finnish students, who have not studied Swedish in general upper secondary school.
English for Professional Development (Technology), 4 ECTS and Academic Writing, 3 ECTS are obligatory to all.

Intermediate specialisation studies

During the second academic year, students can freely 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 life cycle assessment, environmental labelling, and sustainable cities.
- Mechanical engineering specialist courses include mechatronics, robotics, production engineering and basics of FE-analysis.
The specialisation studies include Project Work totalling 20 ECTS, an Internship of 4 ECTS, and a Bachelor's thesis and seminar totalling 12 ECTS.
