The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
At least 2 reference(s) should be provided.
here are roughly three scenarios for the development of future energy solutions: renewable energy sources (hydro, solar, wind, wave and bioenergy), safe nuclear power, and carbon capture and use. These represent the core of energy engineering. By studying energy technology, you will build a career in pioneering technologies. Energy technology is suitable for those interested in technology who want to utilise mathematics and natural sciences as tools.
This programme focuses on the most efficient, environmentally friendly production and distribution of a basic element in our daily well-being: energy and its related technologies.
The main themes of the studies are the efficient production and use of energy and environmental friendliness. Your training will be based on three key areas of expertise in energy technology: physical phenomena related to energy technology, such as policies that affect the shape and magnitude of energy; energy conversion from one form to another; and machinery and equipment for energy conversion.
At LUT University, energy technology research and training are based on strong expertise in power plant technology and energy management. We also offer unique nuclear engineering training with a focus on nuclear safety. The emphases of our degree programme have been selected on the basis of the skills required in the working world.
The Bachelor’s Programme in Energy Technology is a unique, international double degree programme developed in cooperation with Hebei University of Technology (HEBUT) in China. Students admitted to the Bachelor’s Programme in Energy Technology at 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 Lahti, Finland.
Graduate engineers in energy technology are needed for well-paid jobs to take care of safe, economical and low-emission energy production.
Energy is always needed, whether it is a recession or a boom, so there is a need for experts in the field now and in the future.
Extensive knowledge of the energy industry is a trademark of LUT University graduate engineers. They are mainly employed in development, operation and management positions in the energy industry and production and in research and consulting positions.
Work tasks are often related to energy economics, the environmental impact of energy production, emission mitigation, renewable energy sources, the construction and safety of nuclear energy, and the operation and control of power plants.
Master’s graduates from energy technology have gone on to become:
research and development engineers
senior design engineers
export managers for energy technology manufacturers
reactor engineers at nuclear power plants
nuclear safety specialists
biomass boiler sales directors
technical planners for wind farms
energy sector consultants
energy production specialists for industry and the government.
