Key Learning Outcomes

The studies in the programme of electrical and automation engineering aim at diverse skills in electrical and automation engineering, with a strong focus on technology and mathematics.
The annual themes for the studies describe both the learning goals as well as the professional growth stages for each year. Each year you will carry out design, survey and measurement tasks together with other students. The structure and implementation of the studies emphasise the ”finding out” principle which is central in the field.
1st year theme
The business of electrical and automation engineering, basic engineering skills and finding out your own learning needs.
2nd year theme
Basic engineering skills, basic professional skills of the chosen study path, working as a member of a project group.
3rd year theme
Improving the basic professional skills, improving the learning principles behind “finding out” and working responsibly in different groups.
4th year theme
Skills to develop into an expert of the field, the use, design and maintenance of electrotechnical systems.
You may complete some of the 3rd and 4th year studies in international exchange or working in business life projects.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples

As a Bachelor of Engineer from the study path of automation engineering you may work in design, use and management tasks in automation, technical sales, administration as well as entrepreneurs in both Finland and in international tasks.
Bachelors of Engineering from the study path in electrical power engineering work in design, use and management tasks in the industry, electric energy and electrical installations. They also work in technical sales, administration and as entrepreneurs in Finland and in international tasks.
From the study path in intelligent machines you will graduate as an engineer with strong basic competences in automation and electric power engineering as well as the ability to work in challenging, multidisciplinary innovation projects.
