Aalto Thesis Day 2024, 2.10.2024

For many international students, the Master's thesis is the gateway to Finnish working life. International students who do their thesis in cooperation with a company or research organization are more likely to stay working in Finland after graduation, which benefits both companies and the whole Finnish society.

This year Aalto Thesis Day 2024 combines two previous events, Aalto Thesis Fair and Aalto-EIT Matchmaking Event, to reach more organizations and maximize the match with students from the diverse study fields of Aalto University. Organizations are also invited to join the European Institute of Information & Technology (EIT) Master Programs Track as a prelude to the joint networking session with all students. At the networking session, companies will have stands where they can meet students and talk about research topics with them.

Aalto Thesis Day 2024 supports international Master's students to find thesis opportunities in English at companies and employer organizations. Participating organizations can either have an open thesis position on offer, or a foreseen opening for a thesis worker within their focus area. The event is best suited for organizational representatives working in research and development, as well as supervisors and recruiters who are familiar with the organization's ongoing research projects and topics.
