Originally an outreach centre of the Helsinki University of Technology, TUT gained independent status in 1972. Tampere University of Technology is one of the two Finnish universities which started operating as a Foundation University in 2010, when the new Universities Act came into force. The foundation model promotes the development of education and research at TUT and gives the University good prerequisites to succeed amid growing international competition. The increased autonomy provides a competitive edge when competing for good researchers, inspiring teachers.
