Established in 2010, the Aalto University is a new university with centuries of experience. The Aalto University was created from the merger of three Finnish universities: The Helsinki School of Economics, Helsinki University of Technology and The University of Art and Design Helsinki. Aalto University School of Science and Technology has been divided into four new schools starting from 1st of January 2011. The six schools of Aalto University are all leading and renowned institutions in their respective fields and in their own right.
The combination of six schools opens up new possibilities for strong multi-disciplinary education and research. The new university’s ambitious goal is to be one of the leading institutions in the world in terms of research and education in its own specialized disciplines.
An attractive environment for learning and research
The Aalto University is strongly future-oriented while, at the same time, building on the combined 300-year-history of three highly regarded universities. Only the best students and researchers are admitted to study and conduct research at the Aalto University.
A student-centered culture that encourages people to passionately learn new things will be fostered at Aalto University. The new university will provide high-quality research and education and create an internationally attractive environment for learning and research.
The Aalto University will focus its research on major global issues. New research environments often evolve into larger research programs or units through themes that require a cross-disciplinary approach.
