Water and Environmental Engineering
Our research is divided into two strategic areas: global water issues and sustainable circular economy, which are further divided into four research entities.

Environmental Hydraulics Lab
Aalto Environmental Hydraulics Lab (EHL) is a multipurpose laboratory for experimental research and teaching activities. We seek to improve understanding about dynamics and processes of water, sediment, vegetation, nutrients, and harmful substances in the hydro-environment.

How to find us
Coming by metro:
- Get out at Aalto University metro station and walk to its western Exit B (Tietotie)
- Water Building is just in front of you when at the top of the escalators: you will recognise the building from the white ”Fat Lizard” sign
- Walk around the front of the Fat Lizard i.e. between the two buildings: down small hill and the door to Water Building is immediately on your left
Coming by bus (e.g. 550), get out at the bus stop indicated with ‘BUS’ below
- Walk past metro station and Väre Building either from its northern or southern side
- Enter Tietotie: first up small hill and then down small hill with the Fat Lizard on your left: the door to Water Building is then on your left
- Our offices and lecture hall are on the 2nd floor.
Coming by car: drive to Tietotie 1E + get your parking licence from your host.
