The Alumni Association of the Oulu University of Applied Sciences, founded in 2004, is a registered association for students who have graduated from the Oulu University of Applied Sciences or who work there. The word 'alumni' is the plural form of the Latin 'alumnus', meaning a foster child or a protégée. Today, alumnus means someone who has graduated from a higher education institution.
The Alumni Association aims to bring together the expert knowledge possessed by the Oulu UAS alumni with regard to working life needs and requirements. We put this information forward to the University of Applied Sciences in order to ensure that education is developed in the right direction. For example, we participate in education development committees and visit Oulu UAS courses. Our aim is to ensure that Oulu UAS is recognised as a high-quality educational institution.
We also promote contacts among the alumni by organising regular events and get-togethers. We cooperate closely with Oulu UAS and its Student Union (OSAKO) as well as various working life stakeholders.
We need your expertise!
By joining the Alumni Association, you will get a chance to participate in the events organised by the association and network with alumni from various fields.
