Employment opportunities for graduates

Northern Finland is currently experiencing an unparalleled mining boom, making the area one of the exploration and mining powerhouses of Europe. The minerals sector may become one of the key foundations of the Finnish economy as commodity prices are bound to continue their rise on the long term and demand from China and other emerging economies is predicted to grow. These factors ensure employment opportunities for graduates as well as funding opportunities for future research projects.
