Kaplaakin Alumni Ry is an association for graduated students of LUT Industrial Engineering and Management. Association creates opportunities for networking, professional development, and refreshing events. The biggest event organized by the association is Täyskymppi that gathers LUT IEM alumni who started their studies X*10 years ago, to meet other alumni, network, and to get familiar with LUT and study culture at their current states. Kaplaakin Alumni welcomes everyone with LUT IEM background (either through graduate studies or being a current or former member of the LUT IEM faculty staff) to ourprofessional LinkedIn group (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4408677/), and the association is active in sharing different kinds of job and thesis possibilities.

We are currently doing a project together with Kaplaaki, and our mission is to gather at least 100 alumni career interviews. This form will take 10-30 minutes to complete.

Kaplaakin Alumni representatives / contact people for different GMIT generations

The aim of Kaplaakin Alumni is to reach as many LUT IEM graduates as we can and grow as a community of professionals. We are looking for people who can help us keep in touch with different generations of LUT IEM graduates, including international (former) students. If you are interested to be that person who can expand our network with people you are still in touch with from your LUT times (or know someone who would be up for the task), please reach out to us at kaplaakinalumni(at)gmail.com.

Naturally we won’t mind if there are more than one contact people per starting year 😉
