We need to save energy and fresh water
Sustainable material choices are needed all around us in our daily lives. Our society needs to save energy and fresh water, as well as minimize waste from consumption and the production of daily products. During your studies you will learn about bio-based polymers as sustainable material choices, and the efficient and cost-effective use of materials in general. You will also become familiar with current product applications for conserving energy and fresh water resources.
An international approach
The increasingly international focus of today's labour market is clearly reflected in the degree programmes Arcada offers. The degree programme in Materials Processing Technology is for example closely tied to its parallel programme in Swedish (Process- och materialteknik). The idea is to utilise structural networks and learning experiences from the counterpart programme, and also to familiarise international students with the Finnish labour market in a genuinely multicultural environment.
A modern and safe study environment
Arcada’s plastics engineers put their skills to work in a machine laboratory that simulates a plastics factory in miniature. Students learn to master the entire process, from understanding the properties of various materials to product design and the manufacturing of plastic products. The Plastics Laboratory is equipped with all key machinery used in the plastics industry.
