UWAS 21-22

Dear Aalto student!

University-Wide Art Studies (UWAS) registration is ongoing. Don’t miss out on the unique offer of UWAS transdisciplinary methods and topics opening this fall! 

What is UWAS?

University-Wide Art Studies (UWAS) offers all Aalto students an opportunity to explore art-based practices and processes beyond disciplinary boundaries. Its course portfolio consists of carefully curated courses where art and design facilitate transdisciplinary encounters between students from various backgrounds. Rather than distributing new knowledge and skills for those who seem to lack it or abolishing disciplinary traditions, UWAS encourages Aalto students to approach the world from multiple angles and learn from each other. The instructors of UWAS courses meet high standards in pedagogy, and transdisciplinary fields of practice.

UWAS courses are not traditional courses in art and design, and previous knowledge or skills in arts are not required. 

You can find more info on UWAS courses on our website: http://uwas.aalto.fi. To register in SISU, you can find all UWAS-courses by writing “UWAS” in the search field.

Note!
You can register to a course even it looks full in SISU. Students are accepted to UWAS-courses not only based on the order of registration, but the final selection of students will be made based on the diversity of the students and ensuring that the different schools of Aalto are represented in the selection.

Researchers will use the world’s most accurate radiation detector in quantum computers

Professor Mikko Möttönen’s team and their partners have acquired funding to refine the bolometer technology for use not only in quantum computers but also in ultralow-temperature (ULT) freezers and terahertz cameras. The funding is from the Future Makers Funding Program by Technology Industries Finland Centennial Foundation and by Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation. This would be the first time ever that this bolometer is utilized for practical applications.
