Bachelor of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Lahti

In Mechanical Engineering, all students will study 180 credits of core studies. For additional 60 credits, you can choose from complementary curriculum.

Basic studies include mathematics, physics and mechanics as well as languages. The engineering studies contains mechanics and automation, material and manufacturing technology, actuator selection and dimensioning, and logic control. Complementary studies include advanced courses in mechanical engineering, automation design, material and manufacturing engineering, and manufacturing economics and environmental efficiency.

In each year of study, you will work as a team member for a projects. The first and second year of the project will be done by the institution in the laboratory, the third and fourth year of the project will be carried out by the company or RDI-projects. Especially in these projects, you will get an idea of ??what kind of working life skills are required from an engineer. The scope of the project is about seven credits.

The essential parts of the studies are internship and a thesis. During internships, you are familiar with the company's activities and practical work. In the thesis, you will focus on the task of studying and planning an interesting work-oriented topic.

The studies of each LAMK student include a certain amount of general and professional core competence and complementary competence studies. The core competence of the degree forms the basis of your knowledge and guarantees expertise. With complementary expertise, you will in turn be able to deepen or expand your skills in the direction you want and build your own, the most appropriate, individual degree.

You can complement your skills not only from your own training provider, but also from the entire LAMK joint training offering in the fields, and study in different ways in different learning environments.

Our new Niemi-Campus has Europe's most advanced learning environments, where you study with new, future-oriented methods and equipment. There are facilities for Niemi-Campus for various needs such as workshops, quiet working, laboratory work, co-working, theory teaching and presentations.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering involves the design of machines and mechanisms. You will earn how to choose and design the right hardware for the right objects. Different design-supporting studies, such as strength and technical calculation, will become familiar with the design of the machines. Modern learning environments and software are available for you.
