 What is Sisu?

Sisu is a new student information system, developed in co-operation with six universities. Sisu will replace Aalto University’s current student information system Oodi. Currently Sisu is used for making personal study plans (HOPS).

At Aalto University Sisu will be deployed in its entirety in autumn 2021. Sisu will be used a the following universities:

  • Aalto University
  • University of Helsinki
  • University of Jyväskylä
  • University of Tampere
  • Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT
  • Hanken School of Economics

The HOPS individual study plan made by the student is the basis for many processes in Sisu. Sisu makes it possible to track progress and develop studies based on the HOPS In the future Sisu will also offer  

  • a register of student information and studies 
  • tools for teachers to managing course registrations and grade studies 
  • a function to prepare degree certificates
  • online application processes, e.g. applications for graduation, for extending the duration of studies and for credit transfer
