Are you still trying to find your own sports or have you already found it and you want to know, what kind of associations organize events related to that in Aalto? This fall, the sports committee organizes Healthyappro, during which nine different sports associations present themselves by organizing nine different sports events. These events will be organized starting from September and lasting until November and every week there will be one event or two events at the same time. After every event, there will also be a possibility for the participants to hangout with the other participants and representatives of the sports associations and enjoy a warm sauna as well as free snacks!

PDP – INFO
|Are you passionate about design, business and technology?
Then, PdP is the right fit for you.
But what is PdP?
According to a former PdP student, is “the most rewarding, most inspiring, and at times the most ridiculous experience”.Seriously…What is PdP?
Well, Product Development Project (PdP) is a course that is primarily aimed at master level students of any field, who want to learn the development process of investment and/or consumer products. PdP is truly a transdisciplinary team learning project. The team forming, project planning, project execution, and finally, the demonstration of the results are supported by the teaching team. The challenges are real and sponsored with 10.000€ by industry partners, who are searching for innovative cooperation with the next generation of changemakers…and YOU can be part of it. In PdP, all teams are expected to build functional prototypes and carry out testing in meaningful way.If you are a student of design, business or technology and you want to learn real product development – you can’t have better option than this!
It’s once in a life-time experience with great emphasis on passion-based learning (PBL) methodology!
