About the site

The Aalto University website was revamped in 2013. The site operates alongside the online services of the individual schools of Aalto University.

Feedback, questions or improvement suggestions related to the site can be sent via the Feedback button at the bottom of the page, or by email to communications [at] aalto [dot] fi.

The visual identity of the website is designed by TBWA\Helsinki. Anders Innovations is responsible for the technical implementation, and the website is built on Midgard content management system.

The structure of the site

The site comprises five main parts, which are accessible through the horizontal navigation bar at the top of the page (Studies and programmes, Science and research etc.). In addition, the site has information aimed at specific target groups, such as alumni, the media, collaborative partners and prospective students.

The horizontal navigation bar opens up a broader mega navigation menu, with access to the deeper levels of the pages.
