and some answers to ease the project participation

Participation

Participating in SCIL projects is possible for all students from University of Tampere (UTA), Tampere University of Technology (TUT) and Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK). Generally, all the projects will require the willingness to work and learn through practical experience in a multidisciplinary group. Also, commitment to project participation (minimum time requirement approx. 10 h/week) is compulsory.

Even though some of the pre-approved curriculum matches (see below) are IS or IT-fields related, SCIL´s purpose is to serve as a platform for students from any given field covered by Tampere3. 

Getting study credits

Smart Campus Innovation Lab (SCIL) has a project studies module ‘Smart Campus Innovation Lab Projects’ (1-20cr.) . This module is available at Tampere3 cross-studies portal. Currently, the credits of this module are awarded by TAMK Floworks (as Tampere3 cross-studies credits for the students of UTA and TUT). Other common means of getting credits from the SCIL projects are through an internship or as part of your own degree or study programme´s project studies.

For some degree or study programmes we also have specific pre-approved a curriculum match, for others we will work with you and your degree programme to find a good fit. It is a little bit of extra paperwork for sure, but projects should fit pretty well into most curriculums.

Please contact Floworks (floworks@tamk.fi) for more information. For more detailed description of the SCIL study module, check https://www10.uta.fi/ristiinopiskelupalvelu/?uiLang=en (UTA & TUT students) or PAKKI (TAMK students).

If you are a curious student from TUT, UTA or TAMK, looking for new challenges, you are more than welcome to participate. Don’t postpone your chance to meet interesting people and create something really great. It is time for new discoveries!
