Courses in English for Exchange Students in the Study Field of Mechanical Engineering during the Academic Year 2018-19 at the Faculty of Technology

NB! Course languages: Most of the Mechanical Engineering courses are lectured in Finnish, but there is an alternative method for completing the course in English: E.g. a book exam = the course has reading materials (self-study materials: books, lecture notes, etc.) are available in English and these materials replace the lectures taught in Finnish. Possible practical exercises and final exams are taught/given in English.

Course availability: The listed courses are available for exchange students hosted by the Faculty of Technology / Study Field Mechanical Engineering, if they have the previous knowledge requirements of the course. Exchange students hosted by other University of Oulu faculties usually cannot take these courses especially if they do not have the required previous knowledge. They must contact the Exchange Coordinator of the Faculty of Technology (contact info below) to ask if it is possible to participate.

When preparing your study plan (Learning Agreement) for your application, use the information provided under the Courses tab in this catalogue.
