The degree program in Electrical and Automation Engineering is focused on electrical engineering, the automation of production machines and equipment, production facility maintenance, distributed energy production applications and smart controls.
The degree program makes use of the possibilities of new technology in a practical learning process that contains plenty of doing things by oneself.
As a Bachelor of Electrical and Automation Engineering graduate, you will be able to design, develop and implement new systems and solutions related to electrification and automation for the needs of industry, transport, housing, households and more.
Bachelors of engineering specializing in electrical and automation engineering have the competence required for designing electrification and automation for buildings and industrial production equipment. They are able to make use of their education in applying electrical and automation engineering to different application areas, such as lighting, traffic and lift control as well as robotics.
HAMK aims to provide all of its students with these skills, and help them apply the things they learn in class to real-life situations.

Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Automation Engineering typically work in planning and specialist tasks. These tasks are available in, for example, production facilities, planning and consultancy firms as well as equipment and software sales companies.
Planning tasks often consist of projects that focus on, for example, planning and implementing the electrification and automatic control of production equipment and processes. Electrifying residential and production buildings as well as building automation are also typical tasks in the work of a Planning Engineer, as well as tasks relating to work machines, traffic guidance systems and the electricity supply.
Sales and marketing tasks often include mapping the customer’s needs, guiding them in questions that relate to electrical and automation engineering, and the sales and marketing of suitable systems. Their work is often project sales that can include multiple, international companies operating in various fields. Training customers to use their new product can also be included in their tasks.
Maintenance tasks include tasks that relate to the electrical and automation engineering of production equipment and processes. They ensure a factory’s or production equipment’s uninterrupted operation for a predetermined period. Tasks include, for example, mapping the failure rate of a piece of production equipment as well as the definition of tasks during planned maintenance outages.
