Bachelor of Engineering | Mechanical Engineering | full-time

The Bachelor of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering (Mechatronics) programme develops technology industry experts with a specialisation in mechatronics. Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on the integration of mechanical, electronic and electrical engineering systems.

At the Savonia University of Applied Sciences mechatronics is studied with machines such as mini excavators to which students can design new parts or systems. Other examples of mechatronics are welding robots and robotic arms. Those will also become familiar to Mechanical Engineering students.

The degree programme qualifies engineers to work in high technology companies working in international technology projects. The duties of a mechanical engineering graduate fall within the fields of mechanical engineering and control system. Engineer’s responsibilities may include planning, machine design, product development, production development, manufacturing, procurement, resource planning, system development, supply chain management, management, service chain management, maintenance and other industrial-related activities.

In addition, to acquiring industrial engineering know-how, an important part of the programme focuses on developing an international competence, learning how to operate effectively in a variety of interpersonal networks, and cultivating communication, social, teamwork, and problem-solving skills. The goal is to educate high-quality team players instead of individual autonomous workers.

This programme has strong roots in the North Savo region. Engineers have been educated here since 1886. This means that the programme is highly networked with local businesses.

Content of studies

Engineers need good basic skills and knowledge in mathematics, natural sciences, product design, product development and manufacturing technology. That is why these areas form the main content of the programme during the first and second year of studies. These areas provide a strong basis for professional competencies in Mechanical Engineering. In addition, mechatronics studies provide students with a diverse knowledge of designing machine parts.

Project management is a special emphasis in your studies each academic year. It covers the principles and methods of managing processes, projects and change.

Project working is also an integral part of the study methods in Mechanical Engineering. Engineering skills, including working life skills, are learned via projects. Good interpersonal and communication skills are a must when working on global projects, involving people representing a wide range of nationalities and cultures. Managing different types of networks is also an essential skill for a future technology industry expert.

Career possibilities

As a Mechanical Engineer, you will have a wide range of career opportunities. The studies include a diverse perspective on technology and project management which will give you a good background to work on demanding tasks.  Your studies, including practical training, will help you to find your own career path and professional interests.

Mechanical Engineers are often employed in positions of experts and managers who are responsible for planning, product development and project management. In addition, Mechanical Engineer may work with manufacturing, commissioning and sales support of technological products and services.

Possible job titles for mechanical engineers are:

  • Development Engineer, Design Engineer, Patent Engineer
  • Commissioning engineer, Installation Supervisor, Inspection Engineer
  • Project Engineer, Project Manager
  • Maintenance Engineer, Service Engineer, Product Support Engineer
  • Production Planner, Production Engineer, Foreman, Production Manager
  • Sales Engineer, Sales Manager, After-sales Manager
  • Technology Advisor, Consultant, CEO
