Tallinn University of Technology

Cooperation

The Department of Software Science aims to be a partner to:

  • enterprises, offering research-based practical solutions via joint research and development project and co-supervision of theses on all levels of university education;
  • the society and the state, as a responsible visionary and authoritative professional adviser, offering research based and practically relevant expert advice that is in accordance with the professional ethics of engineers and researchers;
  • other universities and academic organisations, contributing jointly to advancing the boundaries of research and technology.

On the School of IT website you can find information about ways of cooperation between the university and partner and also how we ensure the confidentiality of information. The Department of  Software Science research groups competences are divided into the following fields of cooperation:
