Welcome to HAMK
You're here to make a change
At Häme University of Applied Sciences, we believe that the world can be saved with both feet on the ground. All it takes are brave people and concrete actions.
There are about 9,000 of us, shaping the future of bioeconomy, health, education, business, design, and technology.
Studying at HAMK is teamwork – both with other students and partners. We have been at the forefront of reforming higher education both in the field of research and teaching, and we intend to continue to do so in the future.
We provide top-quality resources and environments to both staff and students. By doing so, we lay the foundation for the development of useful solutions and meaningful accomplishments.
HAMK makes the world better with concrete actions in partnership
