Hello!

Welcome to KRK’s website! On our website and on our Facebook page you’ll be able to find information about the guild as well as the events we organise.

WHAT IS KRK?

KRK was founded in 1974 and our official colour is orange. Members of KRK can be found throughout Lappeenranta sporting their orange student overalls. KRK is an abbreviation of Koneenrakennuskilta, which directly translates to Machine Building Guild.

Guilds are nonprofit voluntary associations run by students that study the same subject. Guilds represent their members’ interests and seek to ensure that the quality of education provided by the university is upheld. Additionally, guilds provide other services to their members by organising events and other extracurricular activities, by sharing information about the job market, and by maintaining an alumi network and a clubroom in LUT’s Lappeenranta campus.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN KRK?

Members of KRK are able to join the guild’s weekly email list, as well as KRK’s Telegram channel, in which information about events, job openings, and more are provided in a weekly message. All information is also translated to English! Additionally, members of KRK are also entitled to a free pair of orange student overalls.

HOW CAN I JOIN KRK?

Anyone interested in mechanical engineering is welcome to join the guild! The membership fee consists of a one-time payment of 20€. The membership fee must be paid to KRK’s account (to IBAN: FI93 8146 9710 2387 25 BIC: DABAFIHH). Please include your full name, municipality of residence, and the word ’Jäsenmaksu’ (Finnish for membership fee) in the payment’s message line. For example: John Appleseed, Lappeenranta, Jäsenmaksu.

HOW CAN I GET OVERALLS?

Overalls are ordered in November each year. During October it is possible to try on different sizes and sign up for the order list. They typically arrive in early February.

KRK does not currently keep a large stock of overalls, but we do occasionally have some extra pairs left over. If your stay in Lappeenranta is so short that you cannot participate in our overalls order in November or won’t be around to receive them in January, please get in touch with our international affairs officer who will check if we have an extra pair in your size (contact details below).
