NOTE about the master's thesis: In some exit universities, requirements for a master's thesis may be different from Aalto's requirements. A master's thesis done according to the requirements of such an exit university is accepted at Aalto. However at Aalto the thesis is evaluated according to the guidelines of Aalto. If a section of a thesis is not adequate in terms of Aalto's requirements, it may affect the grade of the thesis. Guidelines for master's thesis evaluation are available in Into: https://into.aalto.fi/display/enmastersci/Master%27s+thesis

Note also: According to Finnish legislation, a master's thesis is a public document and its contents cannot be confidential. Therefore, the material of the thesis must be chosen so that it does not include any information that could be classified as a business secret of the financing company.

Exit year at Aalto

Aalto specialization – Software and Services for Smart Spaces

The starting point for the second year in SSA at Aalto is to create a personal study plan for each student that matches the student’s own interests as well as the needs of the research project that forms the foundation of the student’s Master’s thesis.

Aalto  offers  a  specialization  in Software and Services for Smart Spaces. The courses cover the theoretical and practical aspects of designing digital services with a strong mobile focus. In the Master’s thesis project, the students can focus on problems arising from the thematic research projects in the Helsinki Node of EIT Digital.
