Degree: Sustainable Production in Mechanical Engineering (KoDSuPro_KJ)
Period: 2020-2021

Learning outcomes:

After completing Master’s Programme in Sustainable Production in Mechanical Engineering a student will be ready to engage in modern, world-class manufacturing for a sustainable future. A student will learn to see the possibilities and restrictions of sustainable production. During the studies, a student will develop skills enabling to participate in demanding global development tasks of product and production design. A student will be able to analyse challenging production tasks also by using simulation software.

A student will

  • be able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of manufacturing as a whole and an essential part of the company business
  • have adopted the principles of the most common and widely used manufacturing processes
  • be able to work with others in task-orientated groups participating and interacting in the group in a productive manner and lead and manage production tasks and projects
  • be able to logically think through existing manufacturing problems in daily use and solve them, to contribute to innovative thinking
  • be able to understand possibilities of automation and robots for manufacturing stages
  • be able to understand the meaning of material selection and design for manufacturing of products and sustainability viewpoints
  • be able to rethink existing manufacturing methods and generate innovative new methods for improving the whole factory concept and production
  • be able to well understand economy of manufacturing.



  • Degree Master of Science in Technology (M.Sc. Tech.), (Diplomi-insinööri in Finnish)
  • Higher university degree, gives eligibility to apply for scientific doctoral studies
  • Extent 120 ECTS credits
  • Duration two years, full-time studies of 60 ECTS per academic year.

Degree Structure

The Master's degree (120 ECTS) consists of core studies, advanced specialisation studies and possible elective studies. The Master's Thesis and Seminar is included in the advanced specialisation studies.

The degree doesn't include any elective studies. However students may include free elective studies to their MSc degree, provided that the elective studies don't extend graduation time (recommendation two years). Elective studies can include any courses offered by LUT if the required prerequisites are fulfilled. Studies in other universities/from abroad can be included upon application. Students may include an internship that improves professional skills to elective studies. An internship may be worth a maximum of 10 ECTS credits.
