Tallinn University of Technology
Tallinn University of Technology (TUT) is the only technological university in Estonia and the flagship of Estonian engineering and technical education. The mission of Tallinn University of Technology is to be a promoter of science, technology and innovation and a leading provider of engineering and economic education in Estonia. We value professionalism and reliability, entrepreneurship and innovation, openness and cooperativeness. Education from TUT is highly appreciated worldwide. TUT in figures: established in 1918, 11 500 students, 2 000 employees, 1100 teaching and researching staff , 70 000 alumni members, 4 shools (School of Information Technologies, School of Engineering, School of Science, School of Business and Governance). Total no. 72 buildings (55,5 ha). Goal for 2020: TUT is an internationally outstanding university of engineering and technology; We make use of our academic potential in particular through strategic partnership with major technology-intensive companies in the world, while being an active partner to Estonia. The school of Information Technology (IT) with its almost 50 years of history, is the largest ICT research and tertiary education institution in Estonia and the only one in the areas of computer systems hardware, electronics and telecommunications. The school has more than 2400 undergraduate and graduate students and more than 320 staff members, divided into 4 departments and one IT Collage. IT plays a decisive role in Estonian economy providing education and training for software, system, computer, electronics and telecommunication engineers as well as information management engineers. Several programs are offered in English, attracting large number of international applicants, most notably Cyber Security as well as e-Governance Technologies and Services programs. The educational programs are run in tight cooperation with industry sector and international organizations (such as Skype, Ericsson, NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence and others). The School of Engineering is the biggest School of Tallinn University of Technology. It consists of 5 departments and 2 colleges Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Department of Elecrical Power Engineering and Mechatronics, Department of Energy Technology, Department of Materials and Environmental Technology, Department of Mechanical and Indsutrial Engineering Tartu College, Virumaa College. Our graduates are true engineers, inventors, innovators and business leaders, whose task is to shape future technologies. Even today the demand for such people is high – there are much more work offers than there has been graduates in recent years. TUT has sertified curiculas in field of Electrical and Mechanical engineering closely dealing with following topics: Industry automation and robotics, Electrical drives and converters, Power electronic converters and energy saving , Electricity supply, Electric lighting. TUT provides courses and advanced studies on mechatronics, electrical engineering and machine building. School of Science has Master’s programme: Engineering Physics (MSc), School of Business and Governance has Master’s programmes in International Business Administration, Law, and Technology Governance. There are 10 PhD programmes at Tallinn University of Technology: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Chemical and Materials Technology, Chemistry and Gene Technology, Earth Sciences, Economics and Business Administration, Engineering Physics, Information and Communication Technology, Mechanical Engineering, Power Engineering and Geotechnology, Public Administration. For the successful implementation of the current project TUT will play a crucial role not only because of its strong expertise in ICT, Electrical, Mechatronics and Mechanical engineering but also thanks to TUT’s cooperation with the top 10 universities (Stanford, Berkeley, MIT, Harvard, etc.), scientists and companies (e.g. Microsoft, Google, IBM, ABB, etc.) of the world. TUT has cooperation agreements with more than 40 universities from Europe, Asia and America. TUT’s large international network will contribute also to wide dissemination of MILAN project results through the modern University library, e-library, web site (news feed), innovation centre MECTORY and magazines. Outside of TUT project results will be distributed at international conferences and in journals, as well as in the Estonian Association of Engineers magazine named Inseneeria. For the effective exploitation of the project outcomes, the following main groups and key actors will be reached by TUT: students, alumni and also employees from small and medium-sized enterprises.
