Experienced professionals from both private and public sectors are involved and consulted to create curricula that would meet the latest needs of the labour market. The featured projects cover self-driving vehicles, student satellites, autonomous robotic boat, smart elevator, e-pavement (road pavement that produces solar electricity), artificial intelligence to create personal routes for tourists, and much more. One of the recent initiatives — TalTechDigital — links digitalisation with education, making TalTech the most innovative campus in the country. Therefore, today TalTech is an academic opinion leader, as well as the flagship of Estonian engineering and technology.Learn more!
TalTech offers 4 bachelor’s programmes taught entirely in English: Business Administration, Law, Cyber Security and Integrated Engineering. After graduating, students have a comprehensive knowledge that allows them to apply for master’s studies or enter a job market.
TalTech offers 16 master’s programmes in IT, Engineering, Business, Law and Natural Sciences fields. The classes are conducted in modern labs and study rooms, where students get extensive theoretical and practical education.
There are 9 PhD programmes at TalTech taught in English language. No tuition fee is applied to the full time PhD students. In addition, they receive a doctoral allowance every month during the nominal study period.
A great advantage of TalTech is an opportunity to diversify one’s curriculum, learn about new fields and understand how Physics can also be applied in commercial companies or while developing start-up ideas. Besides, TalTech offers Master’s students an opportunity to participate in scientific projects along with PhD students and professors. In my case, it was a satellite development project in the Mektory.

I chose TalTech because of its international approach to legal education, coupled with an international student body. Looking back, as a current Stanford Law School graduate student, having worked in international law firms, and in-house legal departments of leading technology companies, I can say that many of those opportunities would not have been there if not for my studies at TalTech.

Studying at TalTech gives students the opportunity to learn about the Estonian e-governance infrastructure from a legal, technological, social, and organizational perspective. Students are able to see first-hand how Estonians use e-solutions every day. The practical experience is vital for understanding the implementation of sustainable e-governance.

I would definitely recommend TalTech Health Care Technology for future students. The university provides a wide range of courses in English, which helps more international students study with no need to learn the local language. Moreover, the quality of education and teaching staff is excellent and matches the European standards.
