Diversity of Expertise in Technology and Business
Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) conducts scientific research and provides academic education. For decades already, Lappeenranta University of Technology has been ahead of its time, combining two fields of science that complement each other – technology and business studies. These two unique viewpoints, these two different approaches lay a fertile ground for creating new and developing the old.
The university's areas of strength include energy efficiency and the energy market, strategic management of business and technology, scientific computing and modelling of industrial processes and expertise in Russian business and industry related to the areas above.
The university works in close cooperation with industries, catering to the needs of both the students and businesses. The cooperation began with the forest industry, and contacts have expanded through the years, ranging to a number of different industries.

Lappeenranta University of Technology Strategy 2013
Lappeenranta University of previous strategy, LUT 2010 was completed in 2003. Strategy was based on the university's key strengths and identified opportunities for the future. Strategy after the completion of a five-year period, and especially the last two years of operation are substantially altered the way universities and also at Lappeenranta University of the operating environment, universities, and operating targets. On this basis is built during 2008 to 2013 reaching a new strategy, which the title is defined as an independent one.
It is based on the amount and intensifying law as in form-changing field of university to build a LUT's future as a flexible and innovative tiedeyliopistona. Action is based on the Networked independence, where the international, national and regional cooperation, strengthen knowledge of selected sectors of the building of strong, scientific results and economic prosperity, generating entities.
Future policy is focused more precisely selected, the traditional sectors - energy, chemistry, metal, and the knowledge economy - the emerging knowledge-based areas. This implies in particular the energy efficiency and energy as well as Russia, the strengthening of the role of knowledge in operation of the University. At the same time investing in the construction of a strategic study of peak-level business and technology management, scientific computing and modeling of industrial processes.
Operations are controlled by the strategic objectives derived from the quantitative and qualitative performance objectives. Objectives and their role on the basis of resource allocation and rewards, and allocated to the unit level that the person on the entire university staff. To achieve this, set performance targets will be monitored, detailed, operational programs for the submission of performance indicators.
I can see all activities of nuclear matter, that the entire university staff, students and their knowledge potential is involved in this work. Future competitiveness can only be built on human knowledge and cooperation efforts. Our strong point is in the past been, and in this day, the fact that we have been able to work with departments and divisions over science. Increased size and scale more injuries only underscore the challenges of these aspects.
