The Department of Energy and Materials Technology focuses its applied research on multifunctional materials and energy efficiency, and does so in tune with the needs of the community and the business world. In co-operation with our students our researchers are developing everyday products in order to find practical and concrete solutions to the challenges our world is facing, such as new forms of cost-effective energy renovations of buildings.

Within the priority area of functional materials Arcada provides smart solutions within health care, social and energy services. Partners in this area are, among others, Helsingin Energia, Helsinki and Uusimaa’s hospital district, Chalmer’s University of Technology, Umeå University, Dalarna University, and the Finnish Real Estate Association.
