As an engineering student at our department you will be included in serious research, development and innovation activities already before you’ve attained your degree. At our department we believe in students and researchers working side by side in projects that aim to develop everyday practical products and finding hands-on solutions to problems that our world is facing. The projects focus on multifunctional materials and energy efficiency and we always aim to meet the society’s and industry’s needs. We develop new ways of cost-effective energy renovations of buildings and concrete solutions within the fields of health care, social services and energy. We co-operate with e.g. Helsingin Energia, The Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa, Chalmers University of Technology, Umeå University, Dalarna University and The Finnish Real Estate Federation.
