International Week for Engineering

Registration deadline:

Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) will organise its 10th International Week for Engineering on 27 – 30 January 2020. It is our pleasure to invite our international partners to participate in this event in Tampere, Finland. The International Week for Engineering (IWE 2020) will offer the participants a chance to teach engineering students of TAMK and meet colleagues of the same field of study from TAMK and the participating universities. On top of lecturing, there will be a number of other activities: a company visit, city sightseeing tour, outdoor sports and a sauna evening - just to name a few.

If you are not responsible for international teaching staff mobility at your university, you may forward this information to the relevant person(s) at your institution.

TAMK will welcome max 25 visiting lecturers to the International Week for Engineering 2020, and we hope to have a group of participants whose specialisations will represent all the degree programmes in which TAMK offers education in the fields of Engineering, Technology and Natural Resources.

Our Bachelor's Degree Programmes are:

  • Bioproduct and Process Engineering, incl. Paper Technology
  • Building Services Engineering
  • Construction Architect
  • Construction Engineering
  • Construction Site Management
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Energy and Environmental Engineering
  • Forestry
  • ICT Engineering
  • Laboratory Science
  • Mechanical and Production Engineering
  • Vehicle Engineering

Programme

The programme of the IWE 2020 will start on Monday, 27 January 2020 at 9.00 am at the main campus of TAMK at Kuntokatu 3. The programme will end on Thursday, 30 January by 4 pm. All participants are strongly advised to attend the opening session on Monday morning, 27 January.

All the visiting lecturers will give a minimum of 2-3 hours (à 45 min) of lectures to the engineering students who may come from a Degree Programme conducted in Finnish or in English. All the guest lectures will be given in English, and they are grouped in 90 or 135-minute packages.

We will designate a student group for each lecture by matching the suggested lecture topic and the students' Degree Programme as well as possible. The number of students in each lecture will vary from ca 20 to 60. All the students are at undergraduate level, ie they are on their 1st - 4th year in a Bachelor's Degree Programme in Engineering, Technology or Natural Resources.

In addition to the academic programme, we will organise social activities that will include sightseeing in Tampere, light outdoor sports (optional), a sauna evening and an informal dinner. One evening will be left free.

There is a participation fee of 120 € / participant for all International Weeks at TAMK. The fee will cover a daily lunch, two dinners and the social programme. The International Week for Engineering is only meant for the teaching academic staff of the TAMK partner universities. Other delegates (partners, spouses, children etc.) unfortunately cannot join the programme – even for a fee – due to the limited capacity of transport and other facilities.

The participants will cover their travel and accommodation costs from their own budget. It's recommended to apply for a scholarship (eg. LLP Erasmus) at the home institution for a partial or total subsidy of the costs. The programme of the week will be completed by early January 2020. An info package (how to arrive and where to stay etc.) and a tentative programme will be sent to those admitted by mid-December 2019 at the very latest.
