Other academic positions
In accordance with the Aalto University strategy, the positions of other academic personnel enable the long-term planning of education and research as well as ensure the sufficient mobility of researchers.
Student titles apply to bachelor’s and master’s degree students and postgraduate students who are employed by Aalto University. Aalto University has also defined criteria for awarding the title of docent to persons outside the university community.
By defining other academic titles, departments/schools/the university can hire personnel for specific purposes and on various grounds. In this way other academic titles and practices and expectations related to them are equalised.
The other academic tasks and titles of Aalto University are shown in the following picture:
