High school / higher secondary education
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Finnish / Swedish.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
The translations need to be signed and stamped by an authorized translator.
You must take the original entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
You don’t need to submit any English language tests since your English proficiency will be measured in the online entrance exam.
If you meet the eligibility criteria, you will be invited for an online entrance exam.
You can also apply with a SAT test with a minimum score of 400 from Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and 400 from Mathematics. If you submit an SAT test result, you don’t need to participate in the entrance exam.
Mechanical engineering is a constantly developing, versatile and modern science. In addition to traditional mechanics and machine building it also includes, for example, robotics, industrial internet and 3D scanning.
Mechanical designing uses modern calculus, simulation and design software tools as well as automated production and manufacturing technologies when developing intelligent machines and equipment for the future needs.
The degree program allow you to focus on production systems, design of mechanical systems or simulation and modelling.
In addition to general engineering skills, you will develop deeper knowledge in the design processes and methods of machines, equipment, products and structures as well as in production technology, production planning and modern manufacturing methods. The first two years of studies are similar for all mechanical engineering and production technology students, and after that you can choose one or more of the following 15 credit profiling study modules:
- design of industrial appliances
- structural analysis
- manufacturing automation in the workshop.
The program also includes a work placement of 5 months and a final thesis.
HAMK encourages all students to carry out part of the studies abroad in international partner universities around the world. There is also an additional option to study abroad by completing a double degree partly at HAMK and partly at Via University College in Denmark.
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.
