3 World-class education in modern learning facilities Here at HAMK University of Applied Sciences (HAMK), we offer not only world-class education, but also modern learning facilities and methods. HAMK, with its seven campuses, is a state-recognised higher education institution with over 7000 students from 57 countries. We offer several bachelor-level and master-level degree programmes, and 14 double degree programmes with partner universities around the world. Six of our degree programmes are delivered in English and each field of education offers courses in English. Learning is organised in terms of projects according to the needs and demands of the labour market. In order to link research and development into teaching, our students do real-life projects and write commissioned theses. Entrepreneurship, creativity and innovativeness are core elements of teaching. All students receive basic knowledge of entrepreneurship and business competence in their own field. Our goal is to ensure that all aspects of the student s life are taken care of, and we believe that a balanced everyday life provides the best framework for students to become outstanding global citizens and experts in their professional fields. Student wellbeing, in addition to issues regarding the academic environment, includes such areas as social integration, employment prospects and professional development during and after studies, study guidance services and comfortable housing conditions. FUAS, the Federation of Universities of Applied Sciences, is a strategic alliance formed by HAMK, Lahti and Laurea Universities of Applied Sciences. We operate in the Greater Helsinki Metropolitan Area and have been nominated as centres of excellence for more than 10 times. Together we offer our students a very wide range of study opportunities. Higher Education since

4 Professional Higher Education Universities of applied sciences are multifield institutions of professional higher education. The aim of studies is to provide the necessary knowledge and skills needed in expert functions in the world of work and to meet workplace requirements and development needs. Universities of applied sciences award Bachelor-level degrees and Master-level degrees. In all fields of study the curriculum comprises basic and professional studies, optional studies, a practical training period and a thesis. Higher education is funded by the State. Students enrolled in regular degree programmes pay no tuition fees, but do have to pay for their books and other materials, plus their accommodation and living expenses. 2

6 Located in the heartland of Finland HAMK is situated centrally in the most populated area of the country, southern Finland, where about half of all Finns live. HAMK has campuses in seven locations within a 100 km area of range. These specialise in the following areas: culture; natural resources and the environment; social sciences, business and administration; social services, health and sport; technology, communication and transport; and professional teacher education.

7 8 reasons to choose HAMK 1. Small class sizes ensure that teaching is engaging and lecturers have more time for each individual student. We have a relaxed atmosphere and a low power distance between students and lecturers compared to traditional universities. 2. HAMK has pedagogically highly-qualified lecturers, who are trained to combine theory, practice, and the latest educational technologies in their teaching. HAMK has modern physical and web-based learning environments. The latest educational technologies and elearning techniques are used together with traditional face-to-face teaching (Moodle, WebEx, Adobe Connect Pro, modern auditoriums with real time capture capabilities and classrooms with SmartBoards, Mobiletools, virtual communities, and social networking platforms). 3. There are several options for student exchange mainly within the European Union. HAMK has more than 100 partner institutions around the world. Our students have an opportunity to complete a double degree through our partner institutions. 4. The environment at HAMK is multicultural and international. We have international students from around sixty different countries. 5. HAMK s seven campuses are located in southern Finland, within a 100 km radius of Finland s biggest cities, Helsinki, Tampere and Turku, with international airports. 6. HAMK is a member of the Federation of Universities of Applied Sciences (FUAS). This means that our students can choose from a wider range of summer and online courses. 7. Measured by the amount of research and development conducted, HAMK is among the top universities of applied sciences in Finland. HAMK s main customers for research and development are the region s industry and commerce (particularly small and medium enterprises), as well as the public sector. 8. Our Professional Teacher Education Unit is the oldest and most respected unit in Finland, and is a valuable resource in ensuring high-quality education. 5

8 I graduated from the IB programme in June 2010 and for the last 4 months I have worked at Atlas Copco Rotex, Tampere. Since the organisation has operations in more than 70 different countries, having the BBA degree is like winning in a lottery. I warmly recommend the IB programme since at least to me; it gave the best ingredients for the future. You gain the most valuable skills from international business and get friends from every corner of the world!" Elina Puurunen, Finland Contact information Antti Isoviita Head of the Degree Programme

10 I chose to study at HAMK Valkeakoski Campus, as it is the only place to study Automation Engineering (in English) in Finnish UASs. For my thesis, I designed a new layout for the washing line of Parker Hannifin Ltd.
