Akva is an association for students in the field of water and environmental engineering, welcoming in anyone with an interest in water and the environment. Akva was established in 1997 and a lot has happened in its short history.
The main objective of Akva is to bring its members closer together – this includes members who are still studying and who have already graduated – and closer to companies in the field of water engineering. Akva organises various events for its members, including excursions to interesting destinations in Finland and abroad, sauna nights and other get-togethers, often with visitors representing the university or other interested parties. Akva is an active collaborator with the Aalto University water laboratory.
Akva is a registered student association, with approximately 100 members, working closely together with companies in the field of water and the environment and AYY. Most of the members are students at Aalto-university.
