Cooperation with students

Internship is a purposeful activity of a student to achieve the learning outcomes of the curriculum in a work environment. For the employer, the intern provides a valuable work contribution and brings fresh ideas and new perspectives to the team. Internship is also an effective recruitment channel and shaper of the company's image.

Software development internships' purpose is to provide students of the informatics curriculum with practical experience of the entire software development cycle: from problem formulation with the client to the creation of a digital solution. The course takes place in the spring semester, the presentation of the projects takes place in June. Offer your project idea to Previous software ordering experience is not essential.

LIFE project is a new kind of subject at Tallinn University where students from different study fields carry out a collaborative project on a topic of their interest in cooperation with teachers and external partners of the university. Take a look at the LIFE webpage to see projects that are already made and propose your own project idea. 


Teaching and supervising cooperation

Enterprise Seminar aims to connect students of the School of Digital Technologies to working life in IT-companies and in companies that use IT to a large extent in their profiles, working methods, staff development, production and other related aspects. We are determined to offer our students positive and inspirational experiences of different company cultures and a broader view on using information technologies in other fields and support learners in specifying their interests in the subject field. 

Guest lectures and workshops are just the right start for cooperation with professors and students. Real-life examples from the working world support learners to make sense of what they learn in lectures and create connections with working life. During guest lectures and workshops companies can introduce themselves as an internship company and a potential employer. Some companies have already developed their own guest lectures and our head of curriculums are happy to incorporate existing lectures as needed to develop new guest lectures and workshops.

Co-supervising student works and raising development and research problems by companies is also a good opportunity to create fresh ideas and new solutions together with students and supervisors from the university.

In order to co-supervise student works, the student may have a research problem based on his/her existing employment relationship, and the employer's representative will act as co-supervisor. This ensures the significance and necessity of the research problem. Alternatively, companies can propose their research topics directly to the head of the curriculum in the relevant field, who will help to find a supervisor at the university and to introduce the problem to students. The final work can also be completed as a team development project.


We offer opportunities for professional development in the form of in-service training, custom training, individual consultations, practical workshops and development seminars.

Custom training and workshops can be ordered in the following areas: educational technology, human-computer interaction, informatics, information sciences, mathematics and mathematics didactics.

Microdegree programme is a longer continuing education programme with a comprehensive content based on one or more subjects from a degree studies programme or as a separate continuing education programme.
