Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences


The Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences brings together a unique combination of expertise in natural sciences, related applied sciences and engineering sciences. Our research and education are based on in-depth expertise that lays a solid foundation for scientific breakthroughs and technological applications that help address future challenges.

In natural sciences, our strategic profile is made up of three thematic research areas, namely light-based technologies, bio- and circular economy and computational science. In engineering sciences, our thematic research areas focus on the development, production and management of industrial systems and processes from multiple perspectives. 

Our students develop a deep understanding of both natural and engineering sciences. The degrees awarded upon the successful completion of our programmes include Bachelor of Science in Technology, Master of Science in Technology as well as Doctor of Science in Technology and Doctor of Philosophy.  Our Faculty has an important role at the forefront of research conducted at Tampere University. We undertake experimental, theoretical and computational research. Our activities entail both fundamental and applied research.

We provide education and conduct research that meet the different needs of society. Our research interests cover topics ranging from sustainable development, energy and the environment to new materials, autonomous machines and system design. We engage in extensive research collaboration with industry, and a large number of companies have been spun out from our research.
