TUT: Tallinn University of Technology
Tallinn University of Technology (TUT) was established in 1918 and is the only university focusing on engineering and technology in Estonia. The University has ca 13000 students and 2000 employees, including 152 professors. In 2013, it was ranked first among the Baltic universities, according to the QS World University Rankings. TUT has a well-established engineering education tradition and has considerable experience, systems and facilities in place to support research cooperation with foreign universities and international student exchanges.
TUT hosts several EU-funded projects and mobility fellowships. Over the last 10 years TUT has participated in 47 FP7 projects (acted as a coordinator in 8) and is currently involved in 19 Horizon2020 projects. TUT is acting as a Host Institution for 2 ERC Advanced grants and 2 ERA Chairs.
The Laboratory of Environmental Technology of the Department of Materials and Environmental Technology was formed in the TUT on the base of the former Chair of Environmental Protection and Chemical Technology of the Department of Chemical Engineering during the 2016-17 structural reform. As a legitimate continuation of the named Chair, the Laboratory deals primarily with water, air and soil treatment, with the main stress on the implementation of the Advanced Oxidation Processes, offering students various research topics on Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral studies level.
The Laboratory is also involved in the projects implementation on optimisation of radionuclides removal technology from groundwater and filtration materials decontamination method optimization. Possessing up-to-date analytical equipment, the Laboratory (https://www.ttu.ee/institutes/department-of-materials-and-environmental-technology/labs-and-services-7/laboratory-of-environmental-technology/) is always open for co-operation with other facilities and enterprises.
