Degree Programme in Mechanical Engineering, Full-time studies

PROFILE OF THE PROGRAMME
Specialisation in Automotive and Work Machine Engineering:

The purpose of this line of specialisation is to produce automotive engineers who have basic skills in mechanical engineering and specialised expertise in automotive engineering. Students become familiar with machine design, structural engineering of automobiles, automotive electronics, mechanical engineering and entrepreneurship. Students acquire practical experience, on the level of both the employee and that of the engineer, during their practical training and Project Studies.

There is a wide and diverse range of jobs automotive engineers can perform. Typical jobs include designing, production, management, marketing and sales, or working as an independent entrepreneur. Places of employment may include the automotive industry, engineering industry, and the fields of insurance and inspection.

The automotive industry is one of the fields of industry that has significantly changed the world. Changes have taken place since the time of Henry Ford and will continue to take place in the future. Even today, the automotive engineers are pioneers in technology and their expertise ensures the further development of technology and the preservation of the profession.

Specialisation in Mechanical and Production Engineering:

The purpose of the Mechanical and Production Engineering programme is to produce mechanical engineers who have command of the production processes in the machine and metal industry and production management. Students graduating from this programme will have the readiness they need to work as specialists and supervisors in the machine and metal industry, from designing to production and from sales to marketing.

Emphasis in the programme is placed on production engineering, mechanical engineering and entrepreneurship. Students have the opportunity to acquire advanced skills in technical mechanics, materials design, or automation systems. Students acquire practical experience, on the level of both the employee and that of the engineer, during their practical training and Project Studies.

There is a wide and diverse range of jobs mechanical engineers can perform. Typical jobs include designing, production, management, marketing and sales, or working as an independent entrepreneur.

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.


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.

PEDAGOGICAL APPROACH
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 programmes 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.
