For prospective students

Welcome to study at the School of Science!

The School of Science offers Bachelor, Master and doctoral level degree studies as well as exchange and non-degree studies in Computer Science, Industrial Engineering and Management, Engineering Physics, Mathematics and Operations Research and Biomedical Engineering and Neuroscience. In addition, there are special thematic entities offered such as Aalto Ventures Programme (AVP), Multi-Disciplinary Energy Studies and Aalto Nuclear Safety Minor.

Forward-looking, multidisciplinary studies are at the core of Aalto University where science and art meet technology and business. The founding principle is that education should create new opportunities, not trail ready-made paths. In addition to more traditional options, at Aalto University you can tailor a more unique study experience to meet your own interests and career goals.
