The Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) (in Finnish: Lappeenrannan teknillinen yliopisto, LTY) was established in 1969. The university campus is situated on the shore of lake Saimaa, about 7 kilometres away from the city center. It was originally planned to found a university in Vyborg, but the city was annexed by the USSR. In the '50s and '60s the Finnish Government made plans to establish University of Eastern Finland in Lappeenranta, but in the end it was decentralized in three cities: Lappeenranta, Kuopio and Joensuu. Only departments of engineering were located in Lappeenranta at that time. The Department of Business Administration was established and teaching of economics begun in 1991.


Nowadays, LUT specializes in industrial technology (especially forest and energy), information technology and economics. Being located near the eastern boundary of Finland, the university also offers comprehensive know-how related to Russia. Furthermore, LUT co-operates closely with business life and next to the university lies Technology Centre Kareltek. LUT is state run and state funded, like all other universities in Finland.
