In today’s technological society, engineers need to know their way around a field spanning from high-tech materials to unmanned aerial vehicles. We need increasingly more engineers whose knowledge is not limited to a single narrow subject, who can tie their knowledge and skills to IT, business and process management, product development, design and the digitalisation of production. All of that and much more is taught in Integrated Engineering!
Degree: Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSc)
Duration: 3 years
Faculty: School of Engineering
Study Load: 180 ECTS (view curriculum)
Mode of Study: Full-time study
Students for TalTech international study programmes are admitted based on the admission threshold. Online interview will be conducted only to candidates who have passed the online test. An applicant who receives the minimum of 5 points for motivation letter and online interview is admitted.
Candidates who have achieved a medal of an international subjects proficiency olympiad are admitted based on the olympiad result, gaining maximum admissions points. This means passing the online test and interview is not applicable. The certificate confirming the result of the international olympiad, motivation letter and other required documents must be submitted via DreamApply. List of accepted olympiads can be found here. Please note that the medal must have been received within the three years prior to applying.
Programme Specific Requirements
In order to qualify for the studies in Tallinn University of Technology an applicant has to have at least 60% of the highest possible CGPA.
Please include the following:
Why are you interested in Engineering?
Why did you choose Estonia and TalTech University for your future studies?
What are the reasons for you to choose a study program of Integrated Engineering (IE)?
Do you work or study? For how long have you been working and in which field? Have you completed some other BSc programme? How many years have passed from your last training course in college, secondary school, or university?
Name the programming languages and/or software packages you know well and are able to use.
Describe your previous experience and competencies related to Engineering and/or Information Technology — e.g. your works and projects, skills you have mastered at training courses or by yourself, online courses you have passed, projects you have participated in, etc.
Describe your language skills.
Describe your international experience — have you studied or worked abroad, or have you travelled to other countries?
List your achievements in study fields, e.g. participating in contests in Programming, Mathematics and Physics.
Write about your interests and social activities.
NB! It is important to properly cite and reference any sources used in your motivation letter (quotations, publications, ideas etc. that are not your own). Neglecting the rules of referencing and citation is considered plagiarism and will result in the disqualification of your application.
TalTech Moodle online multiple choice test is to evaluate candidate's secondary school mathematics, physics, chemistry and information technology knowledge.
You have 30 minutes to complete the test. It is required to collect at least 6 points out of 10 to be invited to the online interview.
Only candidates who have passed the Moodle test will be invited to the interview.
During the interview, the following aspects will be evaluated: motivation; interests; achievements; skills and knowledge (math, physics, chemistry, information technology; English); international studying/working experience.
TalTech’s curriculum of Integrated Engineering unites different engineering subjects to satisfy the increasing need for engineers with versatile skills and knowledge who can solve the complicated problems of today’s industry. Therefore, your studies will include programming, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Robotics and Digital Manufacturing.
The curriculum is in English, preparing the students for continued studies in the Master’s degree curricula in the field of technology and IT. With the Erasmus+ programme, you will have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester. You will also expand your sphere of influence by studying together with international students and Erasmus+ exchange students.

Why this programme?
- Connecting different fields, such as IT, business and process management, design and product development, mechatronics and the digitalisation of production can only be studied at TalTech in Estonia (and in the entire Baltic region). We have the best opportunities and high-quality laboratories for this: laboratories for 3D printing, mechatronics, wood, metal, electronics, logistics, mobile services and media, virtual and augmented reality, etc.
- As a student, you can join the TalTech Mektory Satellite programme team, the TalTech Robotics Club or the student formula team FS Team Tallinn to put what you have learned into practice and try out new and exciting ideas.
You will understand the role of VR/AR in services development during this course. Additionally, you will go through the entire simulation process from planning of manufacturing and generating ideas to a prototype, involving monitoring of manufacturing by Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies. Furthermore, you can use VR/AR for controlling robots from distance and design user interface for smart-glass applications.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will understand the role of design in product development. You will go through the entire creative design process from the discovery of a problem and generating ideas to a prototype.
You will look deep into the inner workings of robots: which components they consist of, how to control, programme and teach them.
CURRICULUM OUTLINE (180 ECTS)
- General studies - cover mathematical analysis, entrepreneurship, chemistry, physics, metrology, measurement engineering, etc.
- Core studies - include courses about robotics, machine automation, programming, material engineering, logistics, etc.
- Special studies – consist of courses about design and engineering and integrated engineering.
- Free choice courses - students can choose from the wide variety of courses offered at the university
- Graduation thesis - an engineering project that allows to apply theoretical knowledge to solving practical problems.
Most engineers work in international teams. You may find a job as a product developer who creates new products, machines, systems and services. Product and design managers are needed in companies that create their own products or product families or operate in product development. As a production manager or engineer, you must know the construction, uses and technological capabilities of different technical systems, such as robots, production lines, etc. Increasingly more specialists with strong IT skills as software developers or product owners are needed to take products and production further to an online platform.
What Students Say
Samuel Dare Awoseyin
I definitely would recommend TalTech. The courses are quite practical and they have all sorts of scholarships to motivate you. If you are hardworking enough, you will end up being paid to study here and I love it…. I like Mathematics because I have kind of always been a maths guy. I will add that the maths tutors are quite available and direct. I also like the Programming due to the interactive nature of classes and the approachability of tutors…Entrepreneurship would be my new favourite and that´s because I have kind of a knack for business for a few years now and the way a seed could just grow into something so feasible is invigorating.
First of all, TalTech has introduced a new and very innovative study programme in English which combines different but highly essential fields of modern engineering: ICT, plus mechanical and electrical engineering. A successful engineer crucially needs to have at least some knowledge in these fields which, I believe, are also the essence of creativity and innovation. This is what I got to know and eventually practice at TalTech.
What's more, life as an international student is very exciting, colourful, and fruitful in Estonia. I also had an exchange term at the University of Massachusetts, in Dartmouth in the USA, which happened to be TalTech's partner university and therefore I was able to enjoy the opportunity to familiarise myself with the USA's education system and its approach to learning, and I gained myself a wonderful experience last year.
I cannot express how happy I am for making such a decision. My experience here at TalTech helped me to broaden my perspectives in various aspects of educational life, as well as in my personal life. Because of the experiences I have had so far, I have never regretted my decision, but instead, I remained very proud of it.
