Energy and Building Services Engineering
In the context of society’s future energy needs, this field of study covers issues such as sustainable energy for buildings and the efficient use of energy on business premises, in public institutions, communities, and other facilities where energy is consumed.
Paper and Packaging Technology
The primary focus is on the industrial high-tech production and use of paper as well as optimised processing technology and creative product development for the packaging industry. Sustainability and energy efficiency also figure prominently in this field of study.
Digital Media & Print
This wide-ranging field of study includes the technologies, processes, products, and markets of the printing industry and the related media industry. The field covers not only the principles of engineering but also industry-based methods used in business administration and media design.
An exciting multimedia career with excellent prospects! Technical writers are translators between technologies and users of interactive systems, machinery and software. They use a variety of means to create attractive descriptions of products: user friendly manuals, 3D animations, utility videos, online help and social media.
Mika Nieminen is an Environmental Manager and visiting lecturer from Finland.
"This semester, I have been teaching Circular Economy for the Paper Technology Master programme and the topic itself is very important to me. Personally, I like to take every opportunity to learn more, meet new people and to see how things are done in other countries. As a humanity, I believe we need to learn from each other. And this is one way to do it."
Prof. Malcolm Keif is a visiting professor from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, USA. His teaching focuses on data management, data science, visualization, and data analytics.
"Teaching here is wonderful for a number of reasons. First of all, it is different and that makes it rewarding. At the same time, the students here are very hungry for knowledge and I appreciate that. It is also great being able to teach Master’s level students. And then just learning the nuances of the way Europeans think, and do education is also very interesting."
