Students choose 25-35 credits of elective studies. As elective studies, students can complete a minor and/or take individual courses. Individual elective courses can also be taken from other programmes at Aalto University or other Finnish universities through Flexible Study Right (JOO).

Entrepreneurial and multidisciplinary Aalto studies are recommended. Foreign students are encouraged to take Finnish courses.

Also studies completed abroad during student exchange can be included in the elective studies (exchange studies can also form an international minor or be included in the major). Work experience completed  in Finland or abroad can also be included in Elective Studies.  (SCI students:  max. 10 credits. ELEC students: see the internships credit application instructions of the School of Electrical Engineering.)
