What is TalTechDigital?

TalTech has the desire and readiness  to change first itself  in a global turnaround, and thus show the way to others. It is based on our ambition and determination to use and develop the latest technologies in the best possible way, and to be at the forefront of creating strategic partnerships both at home and abroad. We are doing so not only in the interests of our academic community, but also in the interests of society in particular.

We envisage the future of TalTech as a university that uses the most advanced technologies to better organise its daily activities – learning, teaching and research. Everything that intelligent artificial systems do better than humans is left to the systems and humans can show their abilities in the design and development of new solutions.

This has triggered the TalTechDigital initiative in TalTech University. It is not a program with specific time and financial limits, but a promotion of activities that support the vision-based approach.

  • Jaak Aaviksoo about TalTechDigital

    A large part of the success of today's e-Estonia has rooted from Tallinn University of Technology. TalTechDigital should lead us to a new level by boosting the researchers and students with the use of state-of-the-art technologies to the most important - reaching academic and engineering excellence.

  • Professor Leo Võhandu about heading towards the computers in TTÜ in the 1950s

    "We were able to convince various institutions that a computer can think, too. It was the main theme of our work: how to invent, program, and implement methods that can create order in chaos."

  • Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs Hendrik Voll about e-studies

    "It is important to think about what activities we can take from the classroom into the e-learning environment in order to provide more time for direct communication between lecturers and students in lectures, seminars, classes or practical lessons."

  • Digital Council member Marek Helm about using IT

    "Information technology is only a prerequisite and facilitator, helping to achieve the goals of the organisation. IT is not an end in itself."
