As the home of the Aaltonaut program, the Design Factory is one of the spearhead initiatives in Aalto University encouraging and enabling fruitful interactions between students, researchers, and professional practitioners. We, at Aaltonaut want to do our share in bringing these groups together and are committed in developing new and exciting ways of university-industry collaboration.
The university-industry collaboration in Aaltonaut aims at matching education with working life requirements. Our students are a carefully selected, interdisciplinary group of Aalto University Bachelor’s students looking forward to changing the world! They are conducting real-life problem-based learning projects related to product development, being coached by Aalto professors and alumni, taking on summer internships and foreign exchange studies as well as doing their Bachelor theses within Aaltonaut.
