Hey there, you new freshman starting in the Master’s Programs of Real Estate Economics, Spatial Planning and Transportation Engineering or Urban Studies and Planning!
Welcome to the Master’s Freshmen page of the Guild of Surveying Engineering. This page has some useful information to make it easier for you to start your new studies. If you haven’t already read the Guild Guide, I strongly recommend you to do so.
The primary way of communication in Otaniemi is an app called Telegram which I recommend you get for your mobile device. After that you can join the MK Masters 2020 group here. To further stay updated on events and what's going on, you should join the ENG International 20 Facebook group and follow our guild's Facebook page.
Besides me, the Master’s Student Captain, there are also many tutors to help you. They are guild members whose task is to introduce you to the teekkari culture and student life. You will have your own tutor group which includes 5 to 7 members and one tutor to guide you. Tutors will help you with all the practical matters such as where the next lecture is, where and how you enroll for courses or where the best lunch restaurants are. There must be plenty of questions that you have in mind. For the most frequently asked questions you can find an answer here.
Participate in all the interesting events and keep an open mind during your freshmen year - let’s make it awesome together!
