TAMK celebrates its graduates
TAMK held its graduation ceremonies on Saturday the 6th of June. 382 degrees were completed at TAMK during the spring 2009. This was the last graduation ceremony held at TAMK as it is today, because TAMK merges with PIRAMK on the 1st of January 2009.
Managing Director Sari Rämö from SCA Packaging Finland represented the working life. “A degree from a university of applied sciences gives excellent prerequisites for interesting tasks. As the years go by, you might find yourself in surprising places. A person with a Bachelor’s degree in engineering might find themselves in sales tasks or being a personnel manager.”
TAMK president Markku Lahtinen was happy to announce that over 90 % of TAMK’s Bachelor’s and Master’s theses are carried out to meet the demands of the working life. “These theses are of high quality, which has been demonstrated by e.g. having a student graduating from TAMK degree programme of electrical engineering receive the national Thesis award in May 2009.”
Graduating students naturally gave speeches at the ceremony as well. Brazilian Vanessa Dos Santos-Juusela, who graduated from Environmental engineering, praised the support she had received from TAMK staff: “There was never a problem which the Head of our Degree Programme could not solve.”
