Ceremony Week

The Ceremony Week ends the academic year at Aalto University. Yearly ceremonies include the Graduation Party for masters and bachelors, the ceremonial conferments of doctoral degrees along with exhibitions and discussions.

The ceremony week epitomises an important transition in studies when bachelors, masters, licentiates or doctors achieve an important goal and become alumni after persevering work. Aalto University wants to offer a chance for the university students to celebrate with friends and families. At the same time, the university stakeholders have a chance to meet new talents of the university, and Aalto’s active alumni organization to embrace the new alumni by creating networks.

All in all, the ceremony week is a multi-level insight to the university’s core in the architectural campus. And a lot of fun.
