Structure of the studies

In accordance with the Universities of Applied Sciences Act, the studies of a Degree Programme consist of basic studies, professional studies, practical training promoting professional skills, free elective studies, and a final project/thesis. The extent of the studies is 60 credits a year.

The programme includes 30 credits of supervised practical training in field-related companies. Students in both areas of specialisation participate in Project Studies, which are carried out together with a company. The studies involve Project Workshops where students engage in project work in small groups and the Projects course where students complete assignments independently (27 cr). Students also select 15 credits of elective courses and do a final thesis (15 cr). The degree programme has strong ties with European universities of applied sciences. This offers students the opportunity to study and do their practical training abroad.

The curriculum includes five seams permeating through the studies and extending over them. They are based on SeAMK’s reports, studies and strategy, as well as on the national and international recommendations and regulations related to education provided by universities of applied sciences.
- The Information Search seam strengthens the student’s professional and field-specific information search skills throughout the studies.
- The Internationalization seam secures the improvement of the student’s international competencies during their studies. In addition to student exchange opportunities, the seam also manifests itself as visiting lecturers, in which case the teaching is in English. Also some study materials are in English.
- The studies corresponding to the Entrepreneurship seam help the student understand the central and growing role of entrepreneurship in society.
- The Sustainable Development seam. In the degree program in mechanical engineering, the competencies of sustainable development run through the curriculum. The aim of the sustainable development seam is to help students become aware of social responsibility and to understand the multidimensional significance of sustainable development both as a working life skill and as a competence related to the design and maintenance of machines. In the degree program, the student also learns to apply the principles of sustainable development and the circular economy in practice.

Generic and subject specifc competences

Competencies are extensive knowledge entities, or combinations of the individual’s knowledge, skills, and attitudes. They describe qualifications, performance potential, and the ability to cope with professional duties.

Common/general competencies are fields of know-how common to different Degree Programmes, but their special characteristics and importance may vary between professions and work assignments. General competencies form the basis for professional activities, cooperation, and the development of expertise. According to Arene’s (Rectors' Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences) recommendations, general competencies include learning skills, ethical competence, cooperation skills, innovation skills, and internationalization skills. In addition to the above-mentioned competencies, entrepreneurial skills and quality management skills are emphasized in the degree studies of SeAMK as competencies common to all.

Pedagogical approach and learning environment

The working world and expertise demand that employees have advanced skills in information acquisition and processing and problem-solving, the ability to collaborate with others and to always be open to new learning situations, as well as the ability to combine various types of information and various disciplines with practical work. This means that students must understand what they are taught. For this reason, teaching in the engineering programme emphasises the constructivist theory of learning where the students' active role and world of experience form a significant part of the education. It is the teacher's duty to facilitate learning and co-ordinate studies.

A variety of teaching methods are used in the programme to support students' professional development, readiness for the working world and professional expertise. Students work in small groups, listen to lectures by experts, work in the laboratory, do assignments, work in projects and obtain practical experience in real work environments.

Specific arrangements for recognition of prior learning (RPL)

The RPL procedure means the identification and recognition of the student’s previously acquired learning. The student has the opportunity to apply for the recognition of their competencies if the competencies correspond to the learning goals of the Degree Programme. The identification process is closely connected with the preparation of the student’s personal curriculum and is updated during personal counselling discussions.

The identification and recognition practices are presented in the RPL Instruction of SeAMK. It specifies how recognition of competencies is applied for, how the application is processed, and how the student is informed of it. The instruction lists the RPL contact persons of each Degree Programme, who counsel students on matters related to the process.

In the assessment of prior learning, for example the following evidence is used:

- certificates on training programmes with similar content and other training programmes
- testimonials and further clarifications by an employer
- interviews of the student
- written and oral exams or reports
- functional or written assignments or other evidence
- presentations, portfolios

The Project studies and the final project/thesis and the Maturity Test cannot be submitted to the RPL procedure.

The Head of Degree Programme, Student Counsellor, and when necessary, the teacher of the course in question are responsible for RPL. Their task is to inform students of the recognition and assessment process, to discuss students' Personal Study Plan and to guide students in the demonstration of prior learning.

According to the degree regulation, prior learning of a subject expires in ten years.

Assessment is course-specific, defined by the teacher in question. Assessment methods are an exam (written or oral), practical work, a laboratory test, a field test or equivalent.

Work-based learning and work placements

The student’s salaried work during their studies and the competencies achieved through it can be used in order to complete a course. This is referred to as employment-integrated learning, and it can also be related to voluntary work or hobbies. It is essential that the things learnt through working contribute to the attainment of the learning goals of the course. Learning achieved through employment-integrated learning can be verified, for instance, through skills demonstrations and assignments.

Occupational profiles

The automotive engineer's scope of duties is broad and diverse. Their duties typically involve designing, production, management, marketing and sales, or they may be self-employed. Places of employment may include the automotive industry, engineering industry, and the fields of insurance and inspection.

The mechanical engineers scope of duties is broad and diverse. Their duties typically involve designing, production, management, marketing and sales, or they may be self-employed. The employment prospects for mechanical engineers are good. Mechanical engineers are needed to develop and produce top products for a very wide range of clientele, not only in domestic markets but for exporting as well. As graduates in engineering, students have the opportunity to choose a job that interests them and to reinforce the success story created by Finnish engineers.
After completing the vocational language studies the student is able to communicate in spoken and written situations related to his field of study. He can search for information and follow the development of his professional field in the target language.

Internationalization

Internationalization is reflected in the degree program in many ways. Lectures can be either in Finnish or in English, depending on whether the lectures involve foreign students or whether the lecturer comes from an international partnership network. This improves students' language skills, which encourages them to go abroad for exchange studies.

It is possible to go on an international student exchange in several stages of studies. Typically, exchange periods last 3-5 months. There are many destination countries around the world.

Access to further studies

After two years of work experience, the student will be eligible for further studies for a Master’s Degree in the field in question.

Objective

Students will work on multi-technical, international student teams to fulfil product and production development commissions for various companies utilising Seinäjoki UAS's laboratories. Students will develop their technical expertise and skills in project work and enhance their relationships with companies and other actors.

Content

Students carry out tasks given by their employer. They solve these in an engineering way at group work. Project groups are given specific learning goals for doing the tasks. The companies commissions are clearly defined development tasks that supprt learning. The tasks may vary from short-term surveys to more extensive tasks.

A commission may involve a survey pertaining to quality, the manufacturing of prototypes, testing and comparing work methods, and conventional practical and design work. A commission may also involve a company's completed development project, the functioning, need for refining or cost efficiency of which needs to be examined.

The commisions of companies contain business secrets and therefore they are always confidential.
