The changes in technology concern the whole transportation system: road transportation, off-road machines, marine vessels, and aviation.

Electrification can take place both directly and indirectly. Electrical drives, batteries, charging systems, smart grids, and related automation and information systems are essential technologies in the direct electrification of new electric transportation systems.

Most road transportation vehicles and short shipping vessels can be electrified directly. Indirect electrification is needed e.g. for long-distance shipping, aviation, and heavy road transportation.

This program gives an overview of the technology and business in electric transportation systems. It also focuses on key technologies and skills related to electric transportation, such as electro-mechanical drive trains, power electronics, battery technology, and related information technology. Also, indirect electrification methods and e-fuel technologies are considered, and the environmental impacts of different technology solutions are analyzed.

You will receive a Master's degree in electrical engineering with a focus on electric transportation systems. With the expertise from this program, you will be able to work in various expert positions in the electric transportation sector and also beyond it. Due to the emphasis on power electronics and electrical drives, you will also be fully capable to work in these industrial fields.

The Master's program in Electrical Transportation Systems suits applicants with a BSc degree in electrical engineering and those already in full-time work because it mainly utilizes blended and hybrid teaching. Contact teaching will mainly be arranged on the Lahti campus on individual days at the end of the week.
