Slide 2 Expressed by learned community in the early twentieth century, the need for engineering specialists trained nationally became urgent. Until then, young people from Estonia had received their specialist education in St. Petersburg, Germany or Riga. Opportunities had to be sought for engineering-minded people to acquire Estonian-based education adapted to local conditions and needs. Slide 3 On 17 September 1918, the Estonian Engineering Society managed to open an Estonian-based engineering school named Special Engineering Courses. That date has been recognised as the founding date of Tallinn University of Technology. Programmes were offered in mechanical, electrical, civil and hydraulic engineering, shipbuilding and architecture. In 1919, the school became the private Tallinn College of Engineering, which in 1920 was declared a state institution. Teachers' efforts to develop Estonian terminology for science and technology proved fruitful and the first engineering books were published. In 1923, the first engineering graduation theses were defended in Estonia. In the same year, a State laboratory of Materials Testing opened for research work. Slide 4 By the 15 September 1936 Act of the Head of State, the school was granted the status of University, named Tallinn Technical Institute. The institute had two faculties: civil and mechanical engineering and chemistry and mining. In 1938, the name - Tallinn Technical University - was effective. In 1940 the Faculty of Economics, in 1958 the Faculty of Power Engineering and in 1965 the Faculty of Control Engineering were founded. Slide 5 The University Campus is located in Tallinn, Mustame. It has 4 College around Estonia: Kuressaare College, Virumaa College,Tallinn College and Tartu College. There are about 14000 students and about 1200 workers in academical structure.

Three Bachelor programmes: International Business Administration International Relations Law Slide 9 And thirteen international degree programmes on Master's level: International Business Administration International Relations and European Studies Law Technology Governance Cyber Security (joint programme with University of Tartu) Software Engineering (joint programme with University of Tartu) Computer and Systems Engineering Communicative Electronics Industrial Engineering and Management Environmental Management and Cleaner Production Materials and Processes of Sustainable Energetics (joint programme with University of Tartu) Health Care Technology Design and Engineering (joint programme with Estonian Academy of Arts ) Slide 10 Colleges that provide Applied Higher Education Diploma (equal to Bachelor Degree): Kuressaare College of TUT Tourism and Catering Management Electronic Systems Small Business Management Small Craft Building Tallinn College of TUT International Economics and Business Administration Accounting Real Estate Administration Virumaa College of TUT Production Engineering and Entrepreneurship Informatics Fuel Technology Industrial Automation Civil Engineering Power Engineering Tartu College of TUT Curricula for Bachelor and Master level: Landscape Architecture Industrial Ecology Engineer studies: Environmental Engineering Civil and Building Engineering Doctoral studies: Civil and Environmental Engineering Slide 11 Founded in 1999 One of four colleges Smallest and remotest About 200 undergraduate students Own curricula: Small business management Tourism and catering management Electronic systems Small craft engineering Duration of studies 3-4 years Graduates get higher education diploma Slide 12 Kuressaare College project building auditorium Slide 13 Buildings TUT has about thirty buildings at campus in Tallinn Slide 14 At the main facility there is a library, eight study buildings and the student house Slide 15 At campus there are seven hostels It has five student hostels, family hostel and academic hostel Slide 16 There are also facilities for sports and different sciences like natural science, cybernetics and IT Slide 17 At Kuressaare TUT has one building Slide 18 THE INTERNATIONAL CLUB TUTs International Club (IC) was officially founded in 2003 and consists of 20-30 active students of TUT. Tutors are mostly 2nd- and 3rd- year local student volunteers without any monetary compensation. The IC tutors are happy, open-minded, friendly and helpful young people who are prepared to assist foreign students. Slide 19 STUDENT ACTIVITIES One of the most active and known of them is culture club "Ollalaa. Opportunities to spend one`s free time offer TUT`s Centre of Culture and also historical Glehn Castle, administered by TUT. There are outstanding amateur art activities collectives working in the university: Academical Male Chorus, Academical Female Chorus, Chamber Chorus, Alumni Female Chorus, folk-dance group "Kuljus", brass band and student theatre. Besides amateur art activities collectives there are several other associations working in TUT such as Photography Club, student`s paper "Studiosus", which is modified to virtual form by team. Students looking after environment and it's saving are converged in "Conserving Development Club. Slide 20 Student organisations THE FEDERATION OF ESTONIAN STUDENT UNIONS The Federation of Estonian Student Unions (FESU) currently represents over 95% (64 460) of Estonian students. BEST ESTONIA BEST - ESTONIA - Board of European Students of Technology in Estonia unites around 50 active students who organize more than 20 local and international projects annually. IAESTE IAESTE is an international association of over 60 member countries which arranges paid course-related vacation training abroad. AIESEC AIESEC is an international student educational organization engaged in student exchange for practice ESTIM ESTIEM, the organization of European Students of Industrial Engineering and Management, was created to increase communication and cooperation between students and institutions of technology in Europe within the field of Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM). LAPIKUD Lapikud (internationally known as EESTEC LC Tallinn) is a student organization for students studying IT at Tallinn University of Technology
