This curriculum is a translation of the curriculum of the Finnish degree program.

Structure of Studies

The full degree programme of Energy Technology consists of 240 ECTS and the full-time studies take about 4 years. According to the curriculun, the work load for one academic year is 60 ECTS, which is approximately 1600 hours of student’s work. It consist, among others, of contact lessons in class, distance and independent learning, e-learning, project working and practical training. R&D activities are included in the studies.

The curriculum of the degree programme in Energy Technology is made up of four annual themes:
1st year: Orientation to Energy Technology
2nd year: Processes and economy of Energy Technology
3rd year: Professional studies of Energy Technology
4th year: Application of Energy Technology knowledge
