Below are the instructions for students graduating from the School of Engineering. Please see Graduation at CHEM for instructions in the School of Chemical Engineering.

Graduation practices to be harmonised 31.12.2019

Aalto University is harmonising the graduation dates as of 31 December 2019. From a student viewpoint, the most notable change is that all credits must be entered into Oodi before you can submit a degree certificate request. An exception to this are master’s theses, which must be submitted for evaluation when submitting the degree certificate request at the latest. If you are a student of technology, please check the thesis processing schedule from the Into site of your school.

The deadline for submitting the degree certificate request is the official date of graduation, which will be printed on the degree certificate. It is also the submission deadline for the thesis and the maturity essay.

Checklist for graduating students


 1. Familiarize yourself with timetable

Please note that master's thesis topic and master's thesis are approved by the degree programme committee. The graduation dates between the meetings are intended for bachelor's degree students and those master's degreee students who have already approved their master's thesis. The topic for the master’s thesis and the completed master’s thesis cannot be approved at the same meeting of the degree programme committee. Please note that the deadlines are absolute. If you do not submit the documents and request the degree certificate by the deadlines given, your graduation will be automatically postponed to the next possible date of graduation.
