A brief presentation

The Guild of Mechanical Engineers is called Koneinsinöörikilta, KIK. At Aalto University, School of Science and Technology, students of most departments have founded their own guilds which operate in interest of their members. KIK is the guild for mechanical and energy engineering students.

KIK organizes a large number of events and parties, offers services, takes care of new students, as well as familiarizes its members with companies in the field of mechanical and energy industry. KIK also takes care of students interests towards the departments and faculty.

KIK was founded in 1915 and received a status of registered association in 2001. Any member of AUS (in Finnish AYY), The Student Union of Aalto University, can join the guild. Members of KIK are entitled to use all services provided by the guild. At the moment KIK has around 1100 members.

KIK is managed by an around 12 member board and a large number of officials. The board and officials are chosen at the end of every calendar year, and any member of the guild is welcome to apply.

Don't hesitate to join our events even if most of them are in Finnish! You are guaranteed to find that people also speak English and you're welcome despite the language barrier.
