Master’s program of Advanced Energy Solutions – Energy Conversion Processes depends heavily depends on subjects related to chemistry. Therefore, if you are willing to study this program you must have solid foundation in chemistry and thermodynamics. The program has wide range of subjects where students have the freedom to choose their advanced subjects. However, since there’s no defined path for this major I would recommend that it’s essential to know what are your goals or learning outcomes after finishing this program. Thus, it can aid in shaping your career. The program focuses more on subjects related to process engineering so if you are willing to work as a process engineer then this might be the right program for you. Nevertheless, the teaching material itself is rich in content and for each subject there’s are tutorial classes to reinforce the learning experience.
Regarding career prospects, this program might be a bit ambiguous especially for international students. If you do not have a clear idea of what career you want to purse then it might be difficult to find a job in the Finnish market as this program does not entitle graduates to a certain specialization. Likewise. it’s possible that you continue your PhD after your studies since this program covers a wide range of research topics.
Overall, this program is very suitable for students with good background in chemistry and thermodynamics related subjects. Furthermore, projects are linked to real case studies which are very helpful for the students to gain knowledge about the industry. Also, there are a lot of seminars held by leading companies that explain how theories can be implemented and find practical applications. In addition, the teaching staff is very supportive as well as the student environment.View more
The curriculum is very detailed and provides in-depth knowledge. The courses cover a wide and deep range of relevant information with regard to the topic.
However, each course’s time span is a bit short, either 1,5 months or 3 months, so the whole wide range of content is compressed and results in heavy work but less effectiveness in long-term memory.View more
I loved the fact that the machine learning and data science program was very detailed oriented and in-depth. It gave me a deep knowledge of various aspects of machine learning and data mining. I did feel at times that the focus is more on theory as compared to practicalities but I guess it is the need to fulfil the requirement of further research-oriented careers as well as the industrial requirements. Overall it is a great program to master your skills.View more

Studying in Aalto does not force you to be working all the time, instead, you find plenty of time for your personal life and family. Considering the future career perspectives, Aalto University makes sure to introduce companies to their students in the form of industrial projects, thesis and other research works. I would highly recommend getting a life-changing educational experience at Aalto University.View more
I was very happily surprised when my professors at Aalto University encouraged me to question what they were teaching me, as to provide grounds for discussion deepen my understanding of the topics. I come from Pakistan, where the teachers’ word was indisputable, so was very unused to this. What I found was that this approach led to a level of comfort with the professor that made it easier to learn.View more
If you do not really like programming to become a programmer neither you like just electrical engineering to become electrical engineering. This program is a great combination of the best from both worlds.View more
Studying at Aalto University has been the best experience of my living in Finland so far. At Aalto, you will have a chance to meet and work with bright, talented and hard-working students who are also open-minded and fun to hang out with.

The university also has tons of activities ranging from career fairs to sport clubs adventures. You will always find something you want to do here! It is the best school I have ever attendedView more
I am currently doing my bachelor’s degree in Aalto University, Mathematics and System Sciences as my major. I find amazing how much different fields of studies have found each other in the campus area at Otaniemi. Also with it’s strong student union. There is plenty of associations that you can find yourself besides studies, whether you like to train your sauna skills or compete in beer pong, you name it! I myself am internationally minded and found myself on the Board of European Students of Technology (BEST). Even tho the university is diverse and the opportunities you have are endless, I want to see more openness to international involvement and have local students spend more time with the exchange ones. 4/5 comes from the idea that, even tho the university is great in the educational and social areas, there is always space for improvement.View more
