The curriculum has been planned so that the student completes 60 ECTS credits per academic year and 30 ECTS credits per semester

Studies of syllabus is planned so 60 credits are studied in academic year and length of studies is 3,5/4/4,5 years. Planned syllabus may change during studies.

Electrical Engineering is a broad field within engineering where one needs to develop an understanding of several different areas. The main fields are the provision of electricity and the electrical control systems for industry and buildings. Today, many systems also incorporate ICT. The students need to both specialize and have a broad understanding of the field.
As many of the occupations in the field mean working in international projects, the programme offers an opportunity to develop language skills, communication skills, group work skills and flexibility. There are many openings for private entrepreneurs and in accordance with TAMK strategy the students have a chance to develop their skills in business.
CAREER PROSPECTS
We train students for occupations in electrical power engineering and electrical automation. The aim is to develop the skills needed to work in technically demanding jobs and further studies that require a good theoretical base and information search skills.
Graduates can look for work in planning, development, operating, maintenance, marketing and management in engineering companies, technical commerce, in energy and ICT institutions as well as starting their own business.
VALUES
We value developing a good basic knowledge of science, understanding the theoretical base of electrical engineering and the ability to use mathematical models to describe practical systems.
Many of the tasks in work life require the ability to produce and interpret diagrams, descriptions and other documents. ICT is also widely used.
Along conventional lectures versatile lab and modelling environments are used. These enable putting the theory learnt into practice. This helps problem solving and enhances understanding of the theory.
LEARNING OUTCOMES
During the first and second year of study a broad base for engineering studies is created. These studies enable the students for the three possible study paths which they choose in their second year. The paths have different emphases as follows:
THE STUDY PATH OF ELECTRONIC POWER ENGINEERING
leads the students to an understanding of how electricity is used and distributed through high and low voltages. They will become familiar with planning electrical systems for industry and buildings as well as the technologies that support these e.g. automation, control and monitoring systems. The graduates know the responsibilities when carrying out electrical works and are able to put their understanding into practice. The degree gives the training required for competence 1 in the field. The career opportunities are mainly in planning, maintenance and management of power plants and engineering services. The tasks might include marketing and selling either nationally or internationally.
