The future is presented by newly graduates at Masters of Aalto 2012
MoA’12 is the year show of Aalto University. Opening on Wednesday 9 May 2012 this month long event showcases the future through theses and projects, research and study programmes.
New graduates working towards the better world
The theses and participants of MoA’12 have now been announced. The almost 100 Aalto University graduates have decided to conquer the challenges of the future.
The common theme in the projects presented in MoA’12, is creating a better, more equal and more functioning world.
