A vision of today’s society is innovative, entrepreneurial, technologically advanced, and open to the world, and this is what Tallinn Unversity of Technology (TalTech) is applying for through internationally high-level studies and research.
At TalTech, you can experience the future without stepping into a time machine. Here, education meets all things digital!
Here we make real things and develop them on the spot from scratch. The featured projects cover self-driving vehicles, student satellites, e-Pavement (road pavement that produces solar electricity), artificial intelligence to create personal routes for tourists, and much more. We offer an opportunity to study in a modern digital campus where many of the most recent technologies are tested and implemented on a daily basis. One of our recent initiatives — TalTechDigital — links digitalisation with education, making TalTech the most innovative campus in the country.
Founded in 1918, TalTech is ranked in top 3% of world's best universities (QS World University Rankings). It is the only university of technology in Estonia and accommodates around 10,000 students, out of which 14% are international students from over 100 different countries.
Modern study programmes
TalTech’s study programmes and learning environment are constantly developing. Experienced professionals from both private and public sectors are involved and consulted to create curricula that would meet the latest needs of the labour market. Several of the university’s laboratories have recently been renewed and more and more teaching is done via e-channels. Engineering and IT go in hand in hand in TalTech, which is reflected in our modern study programmes that closely combine the two fields. Over the years, TalTech engineers have developed smart and sustainable solutions for many pertinent problems in Estonia.

Bringing together students, scientist and entrepreneurs
At TalTech, we value cooperation with enterprises and business. For many companies as well as public authorities, we are often the first contact point for finding solutions to a variety of organizational and product development questions. Our innovation and business centre Mektory brings together researchers, students and entrepreneurs offering young people inspiration, knowledge, and resources to create and develop student start-ups and other innovative business ideas.
TalTech is an academic opinion leader as well as the flagship of Estonian engineering and technology. The courage to change, the will to evolve, and desire to have knowledge-based discussions make TalTech a think tank in academic discussions.
We believe that a high level of research and academic studies, as well as academic freedom, are absolutely crucial. Thus, TalTech is the first university in Estonia to offer a tenure-based academic career model.
