Student association of Electrical Engineering at Tampere University since 1968.
Sähkökilta ry, or more informally Skilta, is a registered association working for the benefit of its members according to its official rules. Sähkökilta is mainly aimed for electrical engineering students at Tampere university but students from other fields of study are also welcome to participate in all activities of the guild. The board members and officials of Sähkökilta take care of the day-to-day operation of the guild.
The guild room of Sähkökilta is located at the Hervanta campus of Tampere university. The guild is in Sähkötalos in front of the FabLab workshop and Juniversity. The campus map which you can find here may be helpful when navigating to the guild room. At the guild room you can for example enjoy a cup of free coffee included in the membership fee, study with friends, relax by playing some games on various game consoles, take a nap between lectures or buy something small to eat or drink.
You can also buy Sähkökilta's overalls badges and other products from the office at the guild room. If you'd like to buy something but there's no one at the office, you can probably find some board members from the guild room or from the Sähkökilta Telegram group.
By becoming a member of the guild you can use all of the benefits available to members. These include, among other things, free coffee included in the membership fee, all equipment such as game consoles available in the study and hangout spaces at the guild as well as access to the mailing list of the guild. The mailing list is used to inform members about relevant things such as job opportunities and activities of the guild itself. Last but not least, there are always pleasant people spending time at the guild!
You can become a member of the guild by paying the annual membership fee by wire transfer to the bank account of the guild. A proof of payment and member information required for the member registry can be submitted to the guild via this form. The form also contains more information on how to pay the membership fee. We prefer wire transfer for paying the fee but you can also pay in cash at the guild room if wire transfer is not possible. If you have questions regarding the membership or membership fee, please contact our communications official via E-mail: viestintavastaava(at)skilta.fi.

The daily activities of Sähkökilta are handled by the board which consists of the actual board and officials. An annual general assembly of the guild selects a new chairperson and a new board for the guild each year. One of the first tasks of a new board is to select new officials for the following year. Together the actual board and officials take care of daily tasks such as arranging events, communicating information to guild members, economics of the guild and promotion of students' interests among other things.
