Faculty of Information Technology

The history of the Faculty of Information Technology dates back to the year 1965 when the former Faculty of Electrical Engineering was established at TUT. Today the Faculty of Information Technology is the most dynamically developing faculty at our university. The faculty comprises more than 2100 undergraduate and graduate students and 150 persons of research and teaching staff.


The Faculty plays a decisive role in Estonian economy providing education and training for software, system, computer, electronics and telecommunication engineers as well as information management engineers. Different research groups perform their activities for a wide range of Estonian enterprises and public authorities and some foreign companies as well. Research activities of faculty are coordinated by the Centre for Integrated Electronic Systems and Biomedical Engineering (CEBE) - one of seven Estonian centres of research excellence - and Competence Centre in Electronics, Information and Communication Technologies (ELIKO).

Recent years have brought on an increasing integration of education, research and business activities and our faculty is making considerable efforts to keep pace with these trends. The faculty collaborates widely with governing and uniting organizations of the Estonian industrial enterprises and the departments of the faculty are intensifying collaboration with their industrial counterparts as well. High level research and development activities and steady collaboration with companies are considered as the key factor for updating undergraduate and graduate education as well as developing the research infrastructure.
