Student associations can be a big part of your university path. They organize different events, like participating in sports and field trips to different companies working in the field of chemical engineering. The associations also support students in their studies and promote their interests at the university level.

At the School of Chemical Engineering, Prosessiteekkarit ry (The Association of Process Engineering Students ) take care of the first-year students. They are responsible for introducing you  to university life and to be a part of the Aalto community. Aside from Prosessiteekkarit, we have three guilds that are specialized in our different fields of studies. Kemistikilta (Chemistry Guild), Vuorimieskilta (Guild of Materials and Metallurgy Students) ja Puunjalostajakilta (Forest Products Guild)are active in the community by organizing events with other associations.

Our students are a part of the teekkari community. Teekkari are university students who study in the fields of technology, they have a long history and lots of traditions.

We also have international students coming from all over the world to study at Aalto.

Student stories

Our students tell about their own perspective on studies

    When I started my studies, I had plans to graduate as quickly as I could. My mind changed as soon as I started my first semester. I realized that Aalto is more then just studying for exams and collecting study points. Aalto University as a community provides something for everyone. Through guild activities and volunteer work, I´ve learned a lot about teamwork and leadership. I’ve also gained lifelong friends here.

    I´ve always been interested in environmental issues and more energy efficient solutions. Chemical engineering provides concrete solutions for these problems. We don’t just discuss the issues; we also solve them!
