At TalTech, we make real things, such as self-driving cars or the TTÜ100 satellite. We offer an opportunity to study in a modern digital campus where many of the most recent technologies are tested and implemented on the daily basis. One of our recent initiatives — TalTechDigital — links digitalisation with education, making TalTech the most innovative campus in the country.

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 high level of research and academic studies as well as academic freedom are absolutely crucial. Thus, TalTech has become the first university in Estonia to offer a tenure-based academic career model.
