The orientation week for new students will be organized during week 36 in 2019 (3 - 6 September 2019). The preliminary programme of the orientation week 2019 is available here. The orientation week will provide you with all the relevant information regarding the studies and study environment at Aalto University and in the School of Electrical Engineering. All new students are expected to participate the orientation week.

Students continuing their studies after BSc degree in Aalto

The master's degree programme has been planned as a 2-year programme starting in Autumn. The model schedules and course timetables have been designed based on this 2-year plan. However, if you start your MSc studies during Spring term, it is recommended to first complete the degree elective courses or minor studies.

You are also welcome to participate at the programme welcome session during the orientation week.

 All students

The course Academic Skills in Master’s Studies (ELEC-E0110) will support the starting of your MSc studies and will also support you in the different stages during the first year of your MSc studies. The course will

  • enhance your academic capabilities for successful studies
  • provide you with tools for creating a meaningful and motivational study plan
  • prepare you for the master’s thesis process

On this course you will also be nominated the academic advisor (=mentor) for you master’s studies.
