Research, development and services
“The starting points for Karelia University of Applied Sciences are the region, entrepreneurship and working life. Success grows from expertise and activity. We happily engage in cooperation that develops provincial business life. Feel free to contact us and to use our services!”
Harri Mikkonen, Director of Working Life and International Relations
Karelia University of Applied Sciences serves the enterprises and public organisations in its region in many ways. We educate multi-field experts for working life. The province’s businesses and public organisations benefit from the professional labour force we produce for them. When you can count on the availability of expert human resources, you can plan the development and expansion of your business with confidence.
Updating one’s expertise with postgraduate or specialising studies or short courses benefits both adult learners and their employers. Our starting point is to make use of the newest theoretical knowledge and research which we put into practise for the benefit of working life.
Research, development and production
Companies may develop their products and services, production methods and activities by taking part in Karelia UAS research and development projects or by having students carry out final projects.
Internationality is a major option for companies and communities. Internationality is part of all Karelia UAS activities. In our services to companies and communities, internationality becomes concrete through language skills, contacts, cooperation of academic institutions and business life, projects, and market surveys.
At Karelia UAS, more than 400 professionals in their fields are at the service of companies and communities. We want to be among those who are building a better North Karelia. We welcome you to cooperate with us.
