Welcoming Words from the President and Rector

Pertti Puusaari

HAMK offers not only world-class education, but also modern learning facilities and methods. With its seven campuses HAMK is a state-recognised higher education institution with approximately 8000 students from around 70 different countries. The strategic FUAS alliance between HAMK University of Applied Sciences, Lahti University of Applied Sciences and Laurea University of Applied Sciences allows our students to choose from a wider range of online or summer courses.

Many exciting and new developments are taking place at HAMK. We have invested our time to come up with new and innovative ways to serve our students better and to make sure that all aspects of student’s life are taken care of. Particular attention is paid to degree programmes’ attractiveness, completion rate, student employment and finances.

The process of integrating R&D into teaching has also progressed and produced good results in terms of credits completed by students. HAMK profiles itself as a forward-looking integrator of education, R&D and innovation. Our aim is to support the overall development of the region.

Our quality assurance management system was recently audited by the Finnish Higher Education Evaluation Council. In recognition of our excellent work and high standards, we were awarded the overall status of “advanced” - which is the highest level and the best ever for a Finnish higher education institution.

We welcome new local, national and international partners to our global network, and I am sure we have a great deal to offer you within the areas of teaching, learning and research.

I encourage you to explore the HAMK website to get to know us better and find out more about what we do.
