Industrial Excursions
Approximately once per semester the programme will arrange excursions to
visit leading Finnish mechanical engineering industries. These are optional but
they will give students the opportunity become aquainted with international
leading companies.
For example:
STX Europe (design and build passenger ferries)
Ruukki (steel and engineering products)
Wärtsilä (Large diesel motors for ships and power plants)
ABB (Ship propulsion systems and generators)
