Among many other degrees, Häme University of Applied Sciences also offers its students a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and Production Technology. This degree program allows students to focus on either production systems or design of mechanical systems, depending on their interests. Both paths offer a wide spectrum of courses, and they include eight common and two separate compulsory core competence modules, all provided fully in English.

Degree: Bachelor of Engineering
Credits: 240 ECTS
Duration: 4 academic years
Studies begin: January/September
Language of instruction: English

  • Objectives

    Mechanical engineering and production technology graduates have the necessary design, production and automation skills required in mechanical engineering.

    In addition, they are well-versed in materials technology, which is necessary in the selection of raw materials. They also have deep and up-to-date knowledge about either design of mechanical systems or production systems. In each of these areas, mechanical engineers are able to utilize the relevant computer-based tools. Graduates also master all general working life needs, like economic thinking, ability to work in teams and communication skills.

    The language of instruction is English and a truly international academic environment ensures high-level language and multicultural skills for graduates. They also have basic practical and professional Finnish language skills, so that they are able to integrate into Finnish working life.

  • Career opportunities

    The graduates are well-recognized experts in cross-cultural teams and projects thanks to their strong skills in English and intercultural communication, which also opens the door to many career opportunities. The Riihimäki campus of HAMK has a long history in mechanical engineering and production technology.

    Mechanical Engineering and Production Technology graduates have a wide range of career choices around the world. A typical employer is a design engineering office, small- or medium-size workshop or a large global company. A common career path may lead to expert tasks, managerial duties or entrepreneurship.​
