Student association of Electrical Engineering at Tampere University since 1968.

Working for the benefit of electrical engineering students 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 Sähkötalo, 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.
