Aalto University

Our journey

In 2010, we embarked on a mission. By merging three leading universities, Aalto University was founded to work  as a societally embedded, and  innovative research  university for a better world.

Together, we have come far

For over ten years Aalto University has brought together science, art, technology, and business, and is now among the top universities in the world in its main fields. Our campus has rapidly grown into a world-class collaboration hub and meeting place, and we have transformed into one of Europe’s most international universities.

Major trends are shaping us

The world around us is changing faster than ever. We are in the middle of a sustainability crisis, technological disruption, and a transformation of work life. Higher education is also changing, with increasing demand and competition, digitalisation and pressure on funding.

Universities must be trailblazers to respond to these global challenges.
