Professional Subject Associations
Often called “AA clubs” (short for ammattiainekerho but in some other contexts AA means anonymous alcoholics… ), these associations are not for recovering addicts but rather for students who wish to deepen their connection to a specific subject. The guilds are relatively large organizations catering to everyone, but here you can connect with likeminded people and go on fascinating excursions. Of course, nothing stops you from joining several of them if you are interested! Most of the activity is in Finnish, but just ask and you’ll surely get help.
Below are the AA-clubs for the Guild of Civil Engineers. The AA-clubs for other ENG guilds can be found on their websites, and you are more than welcome to join those too if you’re interested!
