The duties of the School of Engineering Degree Programme Committee cover the administrative tasks related to degree education – this includes the evaluation and approval of bachelor's and master's theses, decisions on degree programme development as well as quality assurance and feedback processing.

The degree programme committee also prepares proposals for the Academic Committee for Engineering regarding degree programme curricula, degree requirements and admission criteria.

The administration of the Master's Programme in Advanced Energy Solutions is handled by a separate degree programme committee.

Degree programme committee membership

The committee has a minimum of seven members from the degree programmes represented in the committee. At least four of the members are elected from among teachers – of which at least two must be professors – and three are elected from among students by decision of the Aalto University Student Union. One of the professors is nominated as the committee chair and a vice chair is selected by the committee from among the professor members.

The term of office for the degree programme committee is four years. The term of office for the committee's student members is one year.
