In the Technology of Wood, Plastic and Textiles programme at Technology of Wood, Plastic and Textiles programme at Tallinn University of Technology teaching is organised into modules combining lectures, seminars and laboratory work in the recently renovated laboratory of Polymer Physics and Technology, which is equipped with state-of- the-art devices. The curriculum gives students the unique opportunity to implement their individual research projects in collaboration with various companies.
Why this programme?
All courses are taught by using blended learning solutions (face-to- face + e-learning) which makes the learning process more flexible
Students have the opportunity to visit different wood-, plastic, and furniture products manufacturing companies, so they are getting familiar with production
Three hands-on scientific research or industrial projects develop students’ skills and provide a smooth transition from university studies to a professional career
The programme gives students vocational and professional preparation for working in the international engineering industry as a designer/constructor, specialist, industrial engineer or middle manager. This curriculum gives valuable knowledge and the practical experience necessary to work with customised furniture projects (hotels, restaurants, public sector buildings, cruise ships) or material selection and technology development for plastic products manufacturing. Skills in CAD/CAM engineering work in connection with knowledge about the technological properties of wood-, laminates, plywood, chipboard, medium density fibreboard, plastics, metals, leather, textiles and composite materials that might come in handy for different professions.
