  2. 2. A merger of leadingFinnish universities in 2010University of Art and Design Helsinki (TaiK)Helsinki School of Economics (HSE)Helsinki University of Technology (TKK)A community of:• 75,000 alumni• 20,000 students• 4,700 faculty & staff• with 340 professors
  3. 3. Motivation for integration• Comprehension of entities• Levels of integration – University – Curriculum • Content development – Course• The demands for working life

  6. 6. Case 3: Integrating material science• Level of integration: 2nd year course (B.Sc.)• Expands the idea of wood based materials → general materials science and polymeric materials• Polymers in pulp, paper and wood industry – Processing aids – Coatings – Modifiers• Theory course + lab course• Students’ presumptions
  7. 7. Case 4: Integrating multidisciplinaryapproach of sustainability• Level of integration: 1st year course (B.Sc.) optional sustainability cultural technical economical social business science & art & design national technology new mediaeconomy water nanotechnology management international energy graphical design trade recycling brain technology research => System and critical thinking, creativity, communication and interaction skills
