A record number of new doctorates at the 2022 Ceremonial Conferment of Doctoral Degrees in Technology
This year, 531 new doctors were conferred. The proportion of women increased from previous years and accounted for about a quarter of all doctoral degrees. 153 new doctors and 10 honorary doctors attended the ceremonial event.
"At their best and purest, improving the quality, renewal and impact of teaching and research go hand in hand. One of the most important measures of the quality, renewal and impact of the university is you, the new doctors, the future makers!" said professor Maarit Karppinen, who served as the conferrer (promoottori in Finnish) during the celebration.
This year's event was also notable for having three women leading the ceremony. In addition to Professor Karppinen, the event was chaired by Kristiina Mäkelä, Provost, and Kristiina Kruus, Dean of the School of Chemical Engineering.
The conferment ceremony was attended by over 600 people, some of whom watched the event via a high-quality live stream in the Lumituuli auditorium at Dipoli.
