Introducing the University
LUT University is a pioneering science university in Finland, bringing together the fields of science and business since 1969.
Our international community is composed of approximately 6,000 students and experts engaged in scientific research and academic education.
Clean energy and water, circular economy and sustainable business are the key questions of humankind to which LUT seeks solutions through technology and business.
Our expertise in energy is reflected in our Green Campus, a unique research and study environment.
LUT has a tradition of strong links with the business community. The Finnish business journal "Talouselämä" has ranked LUT as the best university in business technology cooperation in Finland. We promote business generated by scientific research. This is demonstrated by the university's own investment company Green Campus Innovations, which supports LUT's research-based start-up companies.
