Tampere University

Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences constitute the Tampere university community, created in 2019 from the merger of the University of Tampere and the Tampere University of Technology into the foundation-based Tampere University, which is itself the major shareholder in the Tampere University of Applied Sciences.

Tampere University is one of the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. Almost all internationally recognised fields of study are represented at our university. Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) is one of the largest and most popular universities of applied sciences in Finland. Our strengths are multidisciplinary education, creativity, and a strong international dimension. Together we are building a new model for higher education and research in Finland. Our new community brings together research and education, for example, in the fields of economics, technology, health and society. We have made it our mission to address the greatest challenges facing our society and to create new opportunities. The guiding principles of our community are to combine world-class research and innovation activities, promote multidisciplinary learning and lifelong partnerships, and generate unique expertise in developing applications that benefit industry, business and the public sector.
