The administrative language in Finnish, so fluent skills in both written and spoken Finnish is required from the applicants. For more information (in Finnish) visit http://www.ttyy.fi/vaikuttaminen/halloped and http://www.ttyy.fi/hallopedhaku.
If you're student who is doing bachelor thesis in TUT, receive study grant from The Social Insurance Institute of Finland and you have less than 9 months of study grant left, please answer Student Unions' (TTYY) enquiry and tell us about the reasons which has led to the situation, that your study grant months may end before finishing your bachelor degree.
The Student Union of Tampere University of Technology (TTYY) is concerned about the employee well-being within our University. Wide organizational changes and co-operation negotiations have struck the employee well-being at work so heavily that the effects are already visible even in the students’ everyday life.
The number of teaching staff has been heavily reduced and the teachers’ frustration has been visible during and after the negotiations. The biggest possible loss concerning our students is the voluntary resignation of the most respected teachers caused by the dampening work atmosphere.
From the Student Union’s viewpoint it is difficult to see how the recent measures could improve the quality of teaching in our University and its brand for the better. A recent study conducted by Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland TEK shows that co-operation negotiations have several long-term effects in weakening the work atmosphere (the study in Finnish http://www.tek.fi/edunvalvonta/tutkimus-yt-neuvottelujen-seurauksista).
Tampere University of Technology has chosen proficient people and inspiring work environment to be the keystones in its strategy. The Student Union points out that individual’s skills and experience have no meaning without high employee morale. Inspiring work environment cannot be built on uncertainty. As a side effect for the weakening work atmosphere the brand of TUT has suffered a blow that will have far-reaching impact on the University’s applicant marketing. Good work atmosphere is a significant factor in the employee recruitment process. The Student Union of Tampere University of Technology strongly advises the University to take measures without delay in improving TUT’s faculties work atmosphere, using the existing employee resources and external professionals.
