Founded in 1958, our research and education community is 16 000 students and 3000 employees strong, and one of the biggest and the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. The ten faculties, the many departments and the specialized research units of the University of Oulu create the foundation for multiscientific research, innovation and training of experts for demanding professional tasks.

At the University of Oulu we promote learning and carry out research that pushes the boundaries of the known. We use our full potential to contribute to solving some of the greatest global challenges, including sustainable resource use, responsible business, human wellbeing and lifelong health, intelligent systems and services development, and harnessing environmental risks. The University’s impact is based on excellence, high ambition and productivity in all our activities. We are equally as proud of the scientific breakthroughs, new technology and world-class innovation developed at the University of Oulu, as we are of the impact that our 50 000 alumni have as well-educated citizens around the world. Our strategy is to enhance our significance in international research and secure our role alongside the world leaders in our focus areas. We are building a strong, distinctive scientific profile and plan to further develop our education programs and innovation activities as integral parts of a high impact university. Our high ambition level and open-minded and collaborative culture create a unique environment for the members of our community to grow and develop their expertise. Our two campuses provide exceptional possibilities for multidisciplinary research and education complemented by a welcoming atmosphere. The research done at the University of Oulu benefits people living at all latitudes. However, our heritage as one of the Northernmost multidisciplinary universities in the world is invaluable now, when mankind’s new growth frontier is to the North. The demanding conditions of the far north have always forced people to be inventive and resourceful. Many innovations that have changed the world have their roots roots here. We call this: “Science with Arctic attitude”.
