Top reasons to study here

TalTech was established on 17 September, 1918, when the Estonian Engineering Society uniting local technology intellectuals began to provide special engineering courses in order to cover the need for locally trained engineering specialists. Only in a year the school became the private Tallinn College of Engineering, which in 1920 was declared a state institution.
