New friends, skills and experiences. Hard work and rewarding results. Wappu festivities in overalls, the Annual Ball in an evening gown or a tailcoat. Taking part in KY activities grants you opportunities like these and much more!
Looking back at your student years, you’ll surely prefer remembering not only auditoriums and lectures at Aalto BIZ, but also the hands-on experience and lifelong friendships gained while studying.
Diverse activities are at the heart of KY. Without various sorts of activities arranged by KY’s volunteers, there would be no KY at all – and without newcomers like you, KY would have no future. Next, you’ll be introduced to our associations and possibilities in volunteering that we have to offer so turn the page and come along!
KY has six different committees that are led by a board member and an employee. All of these committees have different responsibilities ranging from culture and wellbeing to academic affairs and both new Mursus and Masters’ students. These responsibilities reflect well on the things the committees do at KY so stay tuned!
KY has project committees that work on a specific matter. Right now, we have two project committees: Annual Ball Committee and TEKNISTÄ. The project committees are often assembled for specific projects, so stay tuned to see if new ones are formed during your years at KY!
KY’s Annual ball is the single most glamorous event of the year and the highlight of the Annual Ball week held between the end of February and the beginning of March. The traditional event cherishes KY’s centennial history and celebrates our strong community. The Annual ball is organized by the Annual Ball Committee chosen during the autumn, usually around October.
TEKNISTÄ :D is KY’s technical background engine. Nothing works without technology nowadays, and that is why TEKNISTÄ :D exists. The project team is responsible for keeping KY’s hardware and software environments in check; be it an audio-visual installation, website, network environment, building automation or anything else that needs to be fiddled with. Whenever you use the internet at KY premises, see moving pictures or hear music, TEKNISTÄ :D is behind them. TEKNISTÄ :D does things with a can-do attitude, good team spirit, and a healthy dose of low-quality humor!
Both student and business life have numerous interesting stories to be told. Aalto University Business Students’ magazine, Kylteri, provides thought-provoking journalism from the members of our community.
Kylteri has been keeping up the traditions of student journalism since 1999. From the very beginning, KY’s own student magazine has provided its readers with journalism covering topics ranging from student life and alumni stories to societal phenomena and culture.
Do you know your way with words or know how to take a perfect shot? Or have you ever dreamed of working in the field of media and communications? Kylteri is always looking for new assisting writers, photographers and illustrators who want to learn more about magazine making or maybe even get a kickstart for their career in the field of media.
KY has three subcommittees, each of them organizing unforgettable parties and other events.
In addition to making student life more fun for KY members, the subcommittees usually have their own traditions and a tight community to support each other.

The Representative Council consists of KY members who are eager to have an influence on the actions of KY and the future of our dear community. It sets the broader frame to guide KY’s operations. The Council determines what KY is, what it stands for and what KY actually does today and years to come. The Council operates at the very heart of KY, which makes it a great viewpoint to all that’s happening in our community.
