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 from LUT University 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.
Developing energy systems, energy-efficient technology, smart grids, electrifying transportation, and electricity markets employ Master's level graduates in electrical engineering now and will continue to do so in the future.
New experts are needed for product development, sales, marketing and management. Your duties may include e.g. the design and production of electric devices, 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.
