Advisory boards

A total of 25 field-specific advisory boards support the development of our degree programmes. Their main purpose is to ensure continuous interaction between TAMK and working life. Representatives from working life, students' union Tamko, and persons in charge of degree programmes are invited to each advisory board. Our advisory boards anticipate the changing needs for labour and education, develop the curricula, and monitor the quality of TAMK education.
