From 1969 to 2002, the institution functioned as the Lappeenranta Higher School of Economics, in 2002 it was reorganized into the Lappeenranta University of Technology. The main goal of the university is to combine economics and modern technology. Together with the city administration, students developed a project for households, thanks to which they can transfer solar energy from their panels to the city's electric grid.
The main areas of scientific and educational activity of the University of Technology in Lappeenranta can be called energy technology, electrical engineering, mechanics and mechanical engineering.
The university appreciates the time and effort of its students - the subjects studied are divided into compulsory and secondary. A mandatory visit is given three days a week, the rest is at the request and ability of the student.
The academic year at the university is divided into four periods, each of which ends with an exam. Each audience is equipped with audio and video equipment to exclude any possibility of cheating. In one audience, several subjects are handed over at the same time, so there will not be a student nearby who will hand over the same subject.
The university participates in world exchange programs. Students who participate in the programs themselves choose their specialties for study.
