About Aalto University
At Aalto University we create the conditions needed for innovation, economic growth, employment and wellbeing. Our research is concentrated around seven key areas combining four core competences in the fields of ICT, materials, arts, design and business together with three grand challenges related to energy, living environment and health.
The first hub of world class research, a pioneer of modern architecture, the stage for the CSCE and the home of Finland’s first satellite – Otaniemi’s Aalto campus has a colourful history. Next the campus will become Aalto University’s joint campus and an open community for all.
A parkland-style campus established in the 1950s forms the core of Otaniemi. The overall vision of the campus was that of Alvar Aalto, and its individual buildings were designed by Aalto and other celebratedFinnish architects such as Reima and Raili Pietilä and Heikki and Kaija Sirén.
Aalto university was established in 2010 when three leading Finnish universities, the Helsinki School of Economics, Helsinki University of Technology and the University of Art and Design Helsinki were merged together.
