Energy and Environmental Engineering

The national entrance examination for English degree programmes in the field of technology is held on Wednesday 22 April 2015. All eligible applicants and some of the discretionary admission applicants are invited to the entrance examination either in Finland or abroad (FINNIPS network).

The entrance examination is a four-hour written examination. It measures study abilities, suitability to the field (logical deduction and basic mathematics and physics/chemistry competence), and English language skills.

All parts of the examination have to be passed in order to be admitted. Also the language test is obligatory for all applicants and it is evaluated on the scale pass/fail. Applicants have to pass the language test in order to be admitted.

In admission group 1 (points awarded for school performance and entrance examination), it is possible to have a maximum of 40 points on the examination. A minimum of 10 points have to be received in order to be admitted.

In admission group 2 (admission based on the entrance examination), the entrance examination result is scaled to the maximum admission points (100) by multiplying the result with 2.5. A minimum of 25 points have to be received in order to be admitted.

When possible, the applicant’s points are counted for both admission groups. The applicant can thus be admitted from either admission group.

Universities of applied sciences in Finland organise entrance examinations in cooperation. Degree programmes belonging to the same entrance examination group accept entrance examinations completed in the other universities of applied sciences. TAMK participates in the national entrance examination cooperation.

The entrance examination result is only valid for the one specific joint application.
