The More Than the Degree blog has moved to a new platform! Continue reading our student’s posts on the Aalto Blogs webpage: https://ourblogs.aalto.fi/more-than-the-degree.
Hi, my name is Svitlana, and in this blog post, I’ll tell you about my study program and why clouds have to be secure.
Not a while ago, we all had to switch from in-person studies to online. It started a new area of education, required a change in our study habits, and brought many new tools to our daily usage. Now starting a class in the morning associates more with clicking on the Zoom link, joining the Teams conversation rather than sitting in the actual class with other students. No wonder, new circumstances require new solutions. Zoom, Teams, Telegram become an indefeasible part of our student life.
In this blog post, we, Svitlana and Katarzyna, decided to share our tips and tricks in the usage of online learning platforms, making our online studies more efficient and organized.

Hello/Moi/Salam/Namaste/Bonjour/Ni hao/Sup/Hola/Ciao. My name is Saad Azhar and I study master’s in building technology at Aalto and this is my second year here at Aalto and in Finland. I am from Pakistan and I did my bachelor’s in Civil engineering from there as well. I always wanted to go abroad and study and for me studying here has been a dream come true.
In this blog post, I want to share with you my experiences from ME310 Global Innovation Program taught in Design Factory (DF). I took ME310 in 2019/2020 as a minor. That time it used to be a 9-month long Design Thinking course until it merged with IDBM this academic year.
A tribute to the course Creative Writing and Other Discourses (TAI-L0010) with Raphael Dagold, author of my Bastard Heart (Silverfish Review Press 2014).

Sometimes I wonder if there would be anyone who wouldn’t want to live a magnificent life. Perhaps it’s true, we would all want to live such a life, and yet we content ourselves to living the simple life instead. Why is that the case? This was the question I pondered over during one of my electives from philosophy, a course called Magnificent Life, by no other than the philosopher, Esa Saarinen, himself.
However, before I go into my experience from that course, I would like to mention a unique aspect of Aalto University, which actually pushed me to apply and accept a place in this university. It was this degree of flexibility in choosing courses, even when one would belong to a particular degree or program. Of course, there are mandatory courses, but alongside those, there is freedom in choosing whichever courses you would like, even from diverse fields like philosophy or arts. As an example; I am a Strategy major, with minor in Global Innovation Program and electives from Philosophy, a unique combination which I couldn’t have found anywhere else in Europe.
