A work-based learning period at Omnia or at some company in Finland's capital area will add to your professional skills as well as cultural knowledge of Finland and your ability to live in a different environment.
The average length of the mobility period is from 3 to 12 weeks, but longer periods are also possible.
I’m happy I got to know the very nice and kind people of Omnia and Aalto University. The wood workshop and the possibilities for the carpenter at Omnia are very impressing. I had a great time working here and learned a lot.

It was great to stay in Helsinki/Espoo. Through Omnia I had an opportunity to do an internship with ABB. I was able to increase my English skills as well as my technical skills with frequency converters.
