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.

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.

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.

During the first and second year of study a broad base for engineering studies is created.

Automation technology requires a broad understanding of the field. In addition to the basic studies in electrical engineering, the students need to understand control systems, measurements and automation. Also the basics of electronics and ICT are thought as well as networks and automation buses.. The curriculum also included programmable control systems and automation systems as well as design instrumentation automation. Studies are practical including laboratory courses, tasks and projects.
The students have the opportunity to complete the qualification needed for supervising electrical installations.
Career opportunities in this study path are usually in companies specializing in automation. Graduates can look for positions in planning, maintenance, management and sales. They can also start their own company and operate in Finland or internationally.
