School of Science: governance


Learning Centre Interior

Aalto University maintains and develops a quality management system in order to support its strategic management and to be able to continuously improve its activities on all levels. The  quality system is thus an entity of procedures and processes aimed at safeguarding and improving the quality of the university, its education, its research and other activities.

Development Manager Marja Niemi ([email protected]) and the School's equality and quality group are responsible for quality affairs in the School of Science.

The equality and quality group supports the Dean in developing the school’s quality assurance policy and manuals. The group makes recommendations on areas of development and supports the annual development cycle at the School of Science. The group is also responsible for the equality work at the School, including the annual SCI EQU action plan.
