TUT’s campus in the suburb of Hervanta is a community of 10,500 undergraduate and postgraduate students and close to 2,000 employees. Internationality is an inherent part of all the University’s activities.

education. Competent Masters of Science of Technology and Architecture as well as Doctors of Technology and Philosophy graduated from TUT are in high
demand among employers. The University combines a strong tradition of research in the fields of natural sciences and engineering with research related to industry and business. Technology is the key to addressing global challenges. The University’s leading-edge fields of research are signal processing, optics and photonics, intelligent machines, biomodelling and the built environment.

About Finland
Located in the northern part of Europe between Sweden and Russia, Finland is the fifth largest country in Europe. Despite its northern latitude, it enjoys a milder climate, thanks to the warming influence of the Atlantic Gulf Stream. It has extensive forests, rural farmlands, coastal regions, and lakes. With 188,000 lakes, more of the surface area of Finland is covered in water than any other European country.  Most of the population of Finland can be found in the southern part of the country in major cities such as Helsinki. A little over five million people live in Finland and while Finnish is the native language many Finns speak English and Swedish. Finland’s gross domestic product is one of the highest in the world, and this provides a comfortable standard of living for its citizens. It is a major shipbuilder and exporter of forest products, metal, engineering and telecommunications products and it is the third largest exporter of pulp and paper in the world. Finland is self-sufficient in grain, dairy production, and some meat products. Finns love the outdoors and they take part in a wide range of outdoor activities, including walking, fishing, hunting, camping, skiing, track and field, basketball, ice hockey, cycling, and boating.
