Sähkökilta offers services to students and collaborates with Tampere university in order to ensure a good studying environment for all students.

Study advisor helps you with study related matters

Sähkökilta's study advisor is currently Sanna Grundström, and you can ask her for help for example in planning your studies, choosing your courses and other questions regarding studies and the universities activities. The study advisor's job is to make sure that students PSPs are in order, but they can also direct students to the right people if they are unsure about who they should ask a question from.

The study advisor's workspace is at the Hervanta campus of Tampere university, in Tietotalo room TD204. The room is located on the second floor of Tietotalo, in the D-wing next to the exam room. The study advisor is on duty according to their schedule, and you can walk in anytime to ask your questions. If needed, you can reserve a time via the Bookings system. If your issue can be solved via email, you can send an email to sahko.opiskelu.tau(at)

Sähkökilta's student advocate

Our student advocate takes care of student advocacy for electrical engineering students at Tampere University. Their work consists of, among other things, receiving and reading course feedback and influencing student related decisions in the university.

Student Advocate
Member of the Board

Do you want to give course feedback?

Were there issues in a course you took or were you positively surprised about the course arrangements? With this form, you can send feedback to the student advocate on courses organised at the university. Our student advocate also informs the university administration about ways to improve courses based on received feedback.

If the course is not in the list, write the code and name of the course here.
If you want, you can give an E-mail address which we can use to contact you, but it's not required.
Please write the characters in the image into the text field.

Electrical engineering topical studies

Topical studies are the subjects that define the focus of your studies. Your choice of topical studies in your bachelor's degree also defines to a large extent what you will be studying in your master's degree. Topical studies include at least 30 credits of courses, but you can take more if you have the interest, and your degree doesn’t get too bloated. In your master's degree, you also have the option to take extended topical studies, which include 50 credits, and in that case you don’t need to take a minor into your master's degree.

During your bachelor's degree you have the choice of five fields of topical studies:

  • Electronics and embedded systems
  • Intermediate Studies in Signal Processing and Machine learning
  • Communications engineering
  • Intermediate Studies in Power Electronics and Electromechanics
  • Electrical energy engineering

In your master's degree, you can continue to these majors

  • Advanced Studies in Power Electronics and Electromechanics
  • Advanced Studies in Signal Processing and Machine learning
  • Advanced Studies in Smart Grids
  • Advanced Studies in Wireless Communications
  • Advanced studies in electronics
  • Advanced studies in embedded systems
  • Advanced studies in Electrical energy engineering
  • Advanced studies in renewable Electrical energy engineering

You can find more information about topical studies and other courses from the study guide in intra You can also ask the study advisor if anything was left unclear.

In addition to that Tampere university offers a wide selection of elective studies, and you may choose any elective the university offers. You must take at least 20 credits of electives in your degree, and you can read about your options for electives from intra or your study guide. You can also ask about electives from the study advisor, as long as you remember that there is no right answer for the choice of elective studies.

Spend some of your free time in guilds and clubs

In addition to Sähkökilta, there are various guilds and clubs which operate at the university. Some of the clubs are more focused on advancing a specific field of study but there are also a lot of clubs for other free time activities and hobbies. This list contains some professional clubs for electrical engineering students as well as a few foreign electrical engineering guilds. You can find a complete list of clubs operating at Tampere university from TREY's website. Guilds and clubs are a great way to spend your free time, meet new people and network with your future colleagues!

Education policy advocacy and student representatives

The student representatives of the administration (more familiarly hallopeds) represent the views of the students and participate in the development and decision-making of the university. Advocacy takes place at many different levels. Student representation is important because the most up-to-date views on the pain points of studying and how to streamline them can often be found in students. In addition to this, it is important that the voice of the students is also heard along the broad lines. The Student Union appoints hallopeds. The hallopedic season is two years, but you can often get involved in the middle of the season through supplementary applications!

Faculty Council of the Faculty of Information Technology and Communications

All faculties of the University of Tampere have a faculty council and have a maximum of fifteen members, each of whom may have a personal deputy. Professors, teaching and research staff and other staff, as well as students, should be represented on the councils. In the context of the representation of these three groups, there is talk of a triangle. If there is an even representation between the groups, we are talking about an equal triangle.

The student members of the ITC Faculty Council are:

  • Honkasaari Anniina, reserve Kemppinen Petri
  • Juolahti Emmi, reserve Rantamäki Kaisa
  • Kärki Juulia, reserve Ahvonen Veeti
  • Mattila Aleksi, reserve Simisker Saskia
  • Timonen Arttu, reserve Karra Janita

Board of Appeal

A person who is dissatisfied with the decisions related to the study credits may apply for an appeal to the Board of Appeal. No rectification may be sought from the Board of Appeal for an assessment related to a dissertation, a licentiate thesis or an advanced thesis, or for the identification and recognition of previously acquired competence, ie AHOT. The Board of Appeal has three professors, three staff members, one graduate student and two undergraduate students.

The student members of the Board of Appeal are:

  • Student Iiris Taubert, deputy student Saija Yli-Rosti
  • Student Julius Haapakoski, alternate student Eemeli Lahtinen

Social Interaction Council (JSB Council)
