Master's Programme in Automation and Electrical Engineering


You can apply for graduation when all courses required for the Master's degree have been completed and registered in Sisu. An exception to this is master’s thesis which you can submit for evaluation at the same time when submitting the graduation request.

Requests for graduation will be submitted by filling in a graduation request through your study plan in Sisu. Creating a study plan on Sisu is compulsory because Sisu generates the degree certificate based on both it and the graduation request.

When all studies required for the Master's degree are done:

  1. Answer the Survey for New Graduates in Technology. With this survey, Aalto University collects feedback on the studies and employment of new graduates. The survey is carried out in cooperation with the Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland - TEK, who will use the survey results to track the employment situation and salaries of recently graduated technology professionals in Finland.
  2. Make sure that your personal study plan is valid and approved. If needed, please update your study plan and apply for its approval before submitting graduation request.
  3. Submit the graduation request through Sisu. First please check the graduation schedule below. Apply for graduation by filling in a graduation request through your study plan in Sisu. Look at instructions how to request for graduation. The deadline for submitting the graduation request is the official date of graduation. Please also note, that you must be registered as an attending student to submit a graduation request and graduate.
  4. Receive your diploma at the Graduation Ceremony or collect your diploma from the Learning Services. You will receive an invitation to the Graduation Ceremony by email about a month before the Graduation Ceremony.
