Towards Aalto University

The joint opening of the 2009–2010 academic year of the Helsinki School of Economics, the University of Art and Design Helsinki, and Helsinki University of Technology took place on Tuesday, 1st of September 2009 in Finland Hall. The rectors of each university were emphasizing the opportunities provided by the merger of these three. Aalto University will begin its operations in January 2010.

Rectors Matti Pursula, Helena Hyvönen and Eero Kasanen

The talks by the rectors as well as the talk by the president of Aalto University, Dr. Tuula Teeri were rather seremonial whereas the student union representatives brought up challenges and new openings in their talks.
