Framtidens industriföretag, FIF, 60 cr

FIF is a Nordic interdisciplinary programme for students of technology. Students who have been admitted to the Master's Programme in Mechanical Engineering can apply to take part in FIF. The application round is organized annually in March/April.

Students who participate in the programme will place the 60 cr of the FIF studies in their Advanced studies and Elective studies. Half of the studies are completed at Aalto University and the other half in one of our Nordic FIF partner universities.

  • Common studies 30 cr: according to the Mechanical Engineering Master's programme
  • Advanced studies 30 cr: chosen from the FIF course list
  • Elective studies 30 cr: chosen from the FIF course list

For more information, please see (in Swedish).


ME310 is an interdisciplinary minor for Master-level students from all Aalto schools. It is orgazined as a set of courses that are taken together. During one academic year, the project teaches students how to use the Stanford/IDEO design process in product development, and is concentrated in practice-based learning. The global student teams prototype, test and iterate in order to develop and implement innovative solutions to real world design challenges posed by multinational corporate sponsors.

Students who have been admitted to the Master's Programme in Mechanical Engineering can apply to take part in ME310. More information on the minor and how to apply:

Students who participate in ME310 will place the courses in their advanced or elective studies.
