Co-operation with companies and partners

The department of Computer Science has a long tradition of co-operation with the surrounding society and the business world. The department cooperates with industry in all the important research areas including data science, data security, digital health and industrial internet.

Partnerships are vital for us as we believe that co-operation enhances the significance and impact of research results and improves our students' learning experience by bringing in real-life business examples to teaching.

As a part of Aalto University we offer multiple forms of co-operation to companies, communities and alumni.

Our Alumni and Corporate Relations team coordinates, maintains and supports the co-operation.
