  • About TUT
             
         


    Tampere University of Technology (TUT) conducts scientific research in technology and architecture and provides higher education within these fields. TUT started operating in the form of a foundation in the beginning of 2010.
    TUT is a significant national and international pioneer in the development of technology and a sought-after cooperation partner among the scientific community and business life. In its own fields, TUT is Finland’s most attractive research and study environment. Internationality is inherently linked to all activities.
    TUT’s operations are founded on a combination of strong research of the natural sciences and technology and research related to industry and business. Many research fields play a major role in addressing global challenges, such as climate change and demographic ageing. The most extensive and established of the international leading-edge fields of research at TUT are signal processing, nanophotonics and intelligent machines.
    TUT offers its students an opportunity for a broad, cross-disciplinary education. Competent Masters of Science of Technology and Architecture as well as Doctors of Technology and Philosophy graduate from TUT to work in key braches of industry, especially in the technology industries and in tasks related to the built environment. In terms of student numbers, the largest fields of study at TUT are information technology and electrical, mechanical, automation and civil engineering.



    About Tampere                                           

    Tampere is the third most-populous municipality in Finland, after the greater municipalities of Helsinki and Espoo.
    Tampere is located between two lakes, Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi. Since the two lakes differ in level by 18 metres (59 ft), the rapids linking them, Tammerkoski, have been an important power source throughout history, most recently for generating electricity.
    Tampere was founded as a market place on the banks of the Tammerkoski channel in 1775 by Gustav III of Sweden and four years later, 1 October 1779, Tampere was granted full city rights. At this time, it was a rather small town, consisting of only a few square kilometres of land around the Tammerkoski. Tampere grew as a major market town and industrial centre in the 19th century. During the latter half of 19th century Tampere had almost half of Finland's industrial labour. The town's industrial nature in the 19th and 20th centuries gave it the nickname "Manchester of the North".
    Tampere was the centre of many important political events of Finland in the early 20th century. On 1 November 1905, during the general strike, the famous Red Declaration was proclaimed on the Keskustori, the central square of Tampere, subsequently leading to universal suffrage in Finland and the Tsar of Russia granting larger freedoms to Finns. In 1918, when Finland had recently gained independence, Tampere also played a major role, being one of the strategically important scenes during the Civil War in Finland (28 January–15 May 1918). Tampere was a red stronghold during the war, with Hugo Salmela in command. White forces captured Tampere, seizing about 10,000 Red prisoners on 6 April.Most of our international students arrive in Finland by air, either in Helsinki at Helsinki-Vantaa airport or in Tampere at Tampere-Pirkkala airport.
