The Aalto University
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 January 01, 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 areas.
The Aalto University School of Chemical Technology started its operations on January 01, 2011. It is based on the Faculty of Chemistry and Materials Sciences of the School of Science and Technology (former Helsinki University of Technology).
