TUT – A Foundation University
Tampere University of Technology is one of the two Finnish universities operating in the form of a foundation. The foundation model promotes the development of education and research at TUT and gives the University good prerequisites to succeed amid growing international competition. The proceeds of the 137 million euro foundation capital enable further investment in new openings in research and education as well as in the development of quality and operations management.
Tampere University of Technology, the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Applied Sciences have joined forces in order to develop a new kind of mode of operation in the Finnish higher education field. The aim of the Tampere3 process is to establish an inspiring and globally attractive environment for research and learning, which benefits from multidisciplinary interfaces and draws interest and has a high impact in both Finland and internationally.
The new university will provide a unique hub for the interdisciplinary research on the economy, technology, health and society.
The high-quality education will enable students to have new kinds of flexible study paths and to earn versatile degrees that will serve the needs of the working life and science.
The Tampere3 project is being prepared in cooperation with the Ministry for Education and Culture.
