The availability and security of the electricity supply are global concerns in the continuing rise of energy production and consumption.
Electrical energy is now more than ever the answer to the world's urgent energy challenges. Electrical energy is the crucial driver of efficiency and success in the energy transition towards a sustainable, truly industrial and consumer-oriented economy.
Electrical engineering is the largest and most diverse technological field in the world. Studies in the Master's Programme in Electrical Engineering are wide-ranging and relevant to industry. You may choose to specialise in the conversion, use and control of electric systems or the electricity market and solar economy.
You will acquire extensive knowledge of how the industry works, and engineering skills and technological knowledge needed to design, assess and improve electrical systems. You will also develop the knowledge, skills and abilities that will facilitate intellectual, creative, responsive and professional growth, and lifelong learning for continuous improvement.
Developing energy systems, energy-efficient technology, smart grids, electrifying transportation, and electricity markets employ Master's level graduates in electrical engineering now and in the future.
New experts are needed for product development, sales, marketing and management. Your duties may include e.g. the design of electric devices and their production, product development, technical sales or production management.
The need for engineers in electricity retail is also growing. Moreover, power plants are undergoing changes as private solar and wind power plants are increasing. In other words, graduates in electrical engineering have ample job opportunities in industry and the public sector.
LUT's electrical engineering training has been the launching pad for a number of important actors and growing companies in the field, some of which are based in Lappeenranta. Job opportunities are available in large international corporations as well as small and medium-sized companies in the field. You will also have a firm basis for doctoral studies in the field of your specialisation studies.
After completing the Master's programme you will have acquired comprehensive knowledge in electrical engineering.
In this Master's programme, you will be provided a holistic view of the modern electric and power systems and their technological development.
As a graduate, you will be able to work independently and scientifically, acquire information and formulate solutions to complex problems and tasks. You will be aware of ethical aspects of the field and its effects on society, and will be capable of critically assessing the future prospects of the field of electrical engineering.
LUT University (Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT) is a pioneering science university in Finland, bringing together the fields of science and business since 1969. LUT international community is composed of approximately 6,000 students and experts engaged in scientific research and academic education.
Clean energy and water, circular economy and sustainable business are the key questions of humankind to which LUT seeks solutions through technology and business.
