The Department of Computer Science provides world-class research and education in modern computer science to foster future science and society.
ICT and digitalisation
This forms the foundation for our spearhead in Finland’s drive towards digitizing many aspects of society – from new consumer services to media, entertainment, education, health care, retail, and several areas of industry.
ICT and digitalization research relates to both theory and practice, computational and mathematical sciences, software and hardware technologies, secure communications, digital media, digital services, and digital engineering and management across technologies and industrial sectors.
This combination provides an excellent launch pad for interdisciplinary innovations. For instance, digitalization and social media are topics which may only be profoundly understood via multidisciplinary viewpoints combining arts, business, science and technology.
Departments in this area
The Department of Communications and Networking (Comnet), is the largest unit in Finland in its research area.
The Department of Signal Processing and Acoustics (SPA) combines competence in different areas of research fields varying from ICT technology to core electrical engineering and its basic phenomena.
Our main research areas are algebra and discrete mathematics, analysis, applied mathematics and mechanics, stochastics and statistics, and systems analysis and operations research.
Aalto Digi Platform
Aalto Digi Platform brings together our researchers and external parties for multidisciplinary collaboration in the area of ICT and digitalisation.
Aalto Digi Platform is an open community for anyone interested in digital technologies. We bring digitalization-related research fields together and foster collaboration between Aalto and society at large. We help arrange community events and organize larger events to spark public discussion and showcase Aalto's research.
