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.

Intended learning outcomes

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.You will be able to apply the essential theories of electrical engineering to practical electrotechnical applications. In addition to technical competences, you may complement your professional skills by business studies. For those interested in establishing an enterprise, there is an opportunity to include suitable studies in business in the degree.

Degree structure and studies

The Master’s Programme in Electrical Engineering is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.

The programme includes core studies, specialisation studies, minor studies and elective studies.

Core studies (min. 18 ECTS credits) include studies in energy efficiency and technology and society, as well as laboratory assignments.

In specialisation studies (min. 70 ECTS credits), students select two or three of the following elective modules:

  • Electricity Market 22-23 ECTS credits
  • Electrical Drives 25 ECTS credits
  • Power Electronics 19 ECTS credits
  • Design of Electrical Machines 24 ECTS credits
  • Electric Conversion Systems 20 ECTS credits
  • Solar Economy 18-21 ECTS credits
  • Control and Automation 22 ECTS credits
  • Embedded Systems 24 ECTS credits
  • Microelectronics 20 ECTS credits

Minor studies (min. 20 ECTS credits) can be selected freely from the minor subjects provided by LUT, or they can be completed in another domestic or foreign university.

Elective studies (to attain the full 120 ECTS credits) may include any courses offered by LUT.

The Master’s thesis and seminar, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialisation studies. The thesis is an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. It is completed during the fourth semester of the degree programme.

You can find the most recent information about available courses, teaching schedules and degree structures from the LUT study guide.

Double degree studies for students from partner universities

Students from partner universities are able to study as a double degree student at LUT. Students admitted to the double degree programme receive a degree certificate from two universities after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities.

In the double degree studies, the students choose the electricity market and solar energy, electric drives or control engineering as their specialisation.

Electrical Engineering programme’s double degree partner universities are:

  • Moscow Power Engineering Institute, Russia
  • Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnical University, Russia
  • St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University, Russia
  • St. Petersburg Mining University, Russia
  • Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia

Career prospects

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.
