For information on the exchange application process please see www.oulu.fi/university/studentexchange. All exchange applicants must submit their exchange application through SoleMOVE by the deadline given, proposed study plan is attached to the on-line application. 

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.) 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.
