A fun campus party, presentation of the first self-driving car of Estonia, an eye-opening vision conference, a comprehensive exhibition of university history, and amusing alumni reunions are waiting for us.

We will open our amphitheatre – inspired by ancient culture – with a rock opera, where all performers are associated with TTÜ. You can hear and see nearly 100 TTÜ guitar players, and singers Artjom Savitski, Rasmus Rändvee and Anette Maria Rennit. The rock opera Four Drops of Digital – music by Siim Aimla and text by Jüri Kriisemann – is talking about the digital development of the university and the initiative TalTechDigital.
