Tampere University of Technology (TUT) (Finnish: Tampereen teknillinen yliopisto (TTY) ) is the second-largest of the universities in engineering sciences in Finland. The university is located in Hervanta, a suburb of Tampere.

The university was founded in 1965 as a branch of Helsinki University of Technology and gained full university status in 1972. The university is state-funded, like all Finnish universities. Its statutory duty is to pursue research and give highest education in its field. The research, conducted by some 1.800 staff and faculty members, mostly focuses on applied science and often has close ties to many different companies (like Nokia). Located next to the university campus is a Technology Centre Hermia, including a large Nokia research facility.

The University awards degrees of B.Sc. (Tech.), M.Sc. (Tech.), B.Sc. (Arch.), M.Sc. (Arch.), Licenciate of Technology, and Doctors of Technology, Architecture and Philosophy. There are some 12.000 students studying for the master's degree, the completion of which takes a total of five years (3 for B.Sc. and 2 for M.Sc.), and about 2.000 doctoral students.

Undergraduate degree study programs leading to M.Sc. available in Finnish language are:
*Automation Engineering
*Civil Engineering
*Communications and Electronics
*Electrical Engineering
*Environmental and Energy Technology
*Industrial Engineering and Management
*Information and Knowledge Management
* Information Technology
*Materials Engineering
*Mechanical Engineering
*Science and Engineering
*Fibre, Textile and Clothing Science

Available International Master's Degree Programmes in English are:
*Biomedical Engineering
*Business and Technology
*Information Technology

*Materials Science
* Radio Frequency Electronics
*Science and Bioengineering

All programs leading to M.Sc. also offer the possibility of continuing research until Ph.D.

In 2003, the university changed its Finnish name from TTKK ("Tampereen teknillinen korkeakoulu") to TTY ("Tampereen teknillinen yliopisto") so that the Finnish name would be closer to the English name and to distinguish itself from polytechnics that are not universities.

All undergraduate students are members of the Student Union of Tampere University of Technology ("Tampereen teknillisen yliopiston ylioppilaskunta, [TTYY] ").
