Students of the Aalto Bachelor’s Programme in Science and Technology are directly admitted to one of the study options of the programme which is also the major subject of the Bachelor of Science degree. Students have the possibility to change the major subject within the programme after the first year of studies. 
Currently, it is not possible to change your major subject to this programme from Aalto University's other programmes offered in Finnish/Swedish, or by applying for transfer of study right from another university.

The following criteria apply when changing the major subject in 2023:

  • at least 55 credits of studies by the end of June 2023, which can be transferred towards the degree
  • a grade point average of at least 3,50.

The 2023 quota per major is two. If there are more applicants than study places, the students with the highest weighted grade point average (GPA) are admitted. If several applicants have the same GPA, they will all be admitted.

Changing one’s major is possible only after the first year of studies (with consideration to absences permitted by law). Changing a major subject will not affect student’s liability to pay tuition fees or the scholarship terms and conditions.
