  • In official documents and recognition, in official communications sent out from the university, as well as in press releases, the official name Tallinn University of Technology must be used first. If the short name TalTech is used in addition to the full name, it must first be presented in brackets after the full name and thereafter be used in reasonable proportion to the full name. In addition to the full name, the name University of Technology (Tehnikaülikool) can be used – the capital letters refer to the concrete university.
