Year 2022 was profitable for TAMK, but the future calls for renewal
The annual review reflects the performance and operational results of Tampere University of Applied Sciences in 2022, especially highlighting the impact of TAMK’s operations: how TAMK has succeeded in its key responsibilities and how it has implemented its strategy. In focus are eg professional higher education; research, development and innovation; and internationalisation.
The aim to renew TAMK’s education proceeded in 2022. In cooperation with working life partners representing a variety of fields, TAMK built a foresight on the competences needed in the future as well as the ways the education is structured.
Credits in the degree programmes were earned more than ever before, 454,000 in total. The employment rate stayed on a good level: 80 percent of the bachelor’s degree graduates had a job, and 90 per cent of the master’s degree graduates.
TAMK’s RDI has 154 ongoing projects in 2022. The value of the project portfolio was 21.2 million euros.
Internationalisation showed at TAMK’s campuses as well as in business. The record number of foreign students is now almost a thousand. TAMK’s education export grew significantly, 130 per cent compared to the previous year.
In the beginning of 2023, President Tapio Kujala sees TAMK being in a crossroads position. During its long and strong history, TAMK has become a recognized, multidisciplinary university of applied sciences and a reliable partner for working life. On the other hand, there are new economic and operational challenges ahead that call for new thinking and new solutions.
”There are plenty of challenges for us, inside TAMK as well as locally, nationally, and globally. Nobody can deal with them alone, but wider and more multidimensional cooperation is needed.”
