Tampere University of Technology
reorganized into four faculties
TUT's organizational structure will change. From 2013 onwards, the University will comprise four faculties and 20 departments or other units.
The most obvious change will be a merger between the Faculty of Built Environment and the Faculty of Business and Technology Management. The new faculty, called the Faculty of Business and Built Environment, will be made up of eight departments and other units. It will bring together a unique combination of multidisciplinary and business expertise and have a strong impact on society. The faculty will employ more than 500 people, including approximately 50 professors.
In addition, some departments at TUT will merge and the placement of some research groups within the organizational structure will change.
The purpose of the structural reform is to build internationally competitive units and create more synergy between research groups by placing them in their natural operating environments. One of the reasons for launching the process was the recommendations expressed in the final report of the international Research Assessment Exercise, which was completed at TUT in 2011.
