Aalto Thesis update on coronavirus

Aalto Thesis Team is also contributing to preventing the outbreak of coronavirus. We take this situation very seriously and follow the Finnish government’s and Aalto University’s instructions. Aalto University has shifted to distant education and remote work, and therefore also Aalto Thesis Team continues working remotely. Aalto University has also recommended not to receive external visitors to Aalto until further notice.

Aalto Thesis continues normally but online

Aalto Thesis Projects yet proceed as usual, but we are meeting online instead of face-to-face. Upcoming Aalto Thesis Status Meetings will be held in Zoom, Skype, or Microsoft Teams. Alternatively, instead of the online meeting, Student Teams can also hand in a written Status Reports (instructions available) for the Partner to comment.

Students: Value the teamwork when working remotely

We highly recommend each Aalto Thesis student to work only from home. Make sure to read Aalto’s recommendations for remote studying. Also, within your team, agree upon which online platform you will use for communication and collaboration (e.g. Microsoft Teams, Zoom, etc.). We hope that you value teamwork even more during the times like these when human contacts are limited. Use your imagination and find ways to keep the team spirit alive! Let us know if you need any ideas or help in organising remote teamwork.

We are here to help.
