Signal of quality

At the Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering, science and engineering meet society. Our portfolio covers fields from natural sciences to engineering and information sciences. In parallel with basic research, we develop ideas and technologies further into innovations and services. We are experts in systems science: we develop integrated solutions from care of the elderly to space robotics.

The School's five departments cover the fields of electronics, communications and automation. Special fields include automation and systems technology, electronics and information technology, power engineering, communications engineering and bioinformation technology.

The novel research results and systems solutions require committed researchers, hard-working students, modern research infrastructure, and an excellent support organization. Our international and close-knit community is one of our strengths.
