Aalto University School of Science and Technology (TKK) (Finnish: Aalto-yliopiston teknillinen korkeakoulu; Swedish: Aalto-universitets tekniska högskola), was the temporary name for Helsinki University of Technology during the process of forming the Aalto University. The School of Science and Technology was one constituent school of the university for one year, before being split up to form the basis for four separate constituent schools of the Aalto University

  • School of Chemical Technology (Aalto CHEM)
  • School of Electrical Engineering (Aalto ELEC)
  • School of Engineering (Aalto ENG)
  • School of Science (Aalto SCI)

For further history of TKK see Helsinki University of Technology.
