What is TiTe?

Tampereen TietoTeekkarikilta ry or TiTe is the Guild of Information Technology at Tampere University - an organisation which supports the interests of all IT students at the university and organises events and services for its members. Any member of the student union (TREY) can join the guild, regardless of their study programme.

TiTe was founded in 1991 by members of Tampereen TietoTeekkarit, a club for students of the then brand new Information Technology study programme. Our guild's colour, black, was inherited from that club and we display it proudly on our overalls. Nowadays, we are one of the largest guilds at the Hervanta campus with about 500 members.

TiTe has its own guild room in the basement of Tietotalo in Hervanta campus. The room number is TA015. At the guild room, we offer many services, among them a television, a PlayStation 5 with several games, computer for our members to use (see here for more information), board games and the guild's official mascot, the wooden teekkari cap wearing dog Ruffe. We also sell overall badges, school supplies, IT study books and printed course handouts. Find out more about our sales items on the sales page .

Joining and Getting Informed

You can easily join the guild's activities by spending time at our guild room, where you can get to know our active members. Stopping by at our events also helps! To become an official member of the guild you need to pay the guild fee, 5,00 euros, at the sales desk at our guild room when a member of the board is present or submit your information in this form .

If you want to stay informed about our activities, you should follow the guild's official information channels: this website, TiTe's Facebook page , TiTe's Instagram page , our mascot Ruffe's tweets (unfortunately mostly only in Finnish due to character limit) and our mailing lists. You can also find our events in the Tuni Intra events calendar. All important information about guild matters ends up on our official e-mail lists, which are as follows:

Alumnit - A list intended for our alumni, who only want to receive information about alumni activities. You shall be a member of TiTTu (our alumni organization) before joining the list.

Fury - This list is intended for our fuksis. In addition to regular announcements, it also receives emails about fuksi events.

Jäsenet - The general members' list, which receives information about guild activities, as well as the weekly newsletter with news from elsewhere on the campus.

Joining the mailing lists has been disabled due to spam. If you want to join a list, please send a message to atk (at) tietoteekkarikilta.fi.

To participate in unofficial discussion you can join the channel #tite on IRCnet. Rules for the channel exist but are currently only in Finnish. In short: set your real name in your IRC client, do not post away messages to the channel and use /lastlog before pasting a more or less funny URL to check that it has not been posted recently.

Helping The Students

As the guild of information technology students, TiTe also seeks to help its members in their studies. We sell school supplies, IT study books and other miscellaneous items at the guild room.

The guild also works closely with the Faculty of Computing and Electrical Engineering to provide its members with information about different study choices at the university. If you have suggestions to improve the guild's services in this field, please contact the board members responsible for studies either via this form or by using the contact details given in the board section further down on this page.

Exam Archive

You can peruse the guild's exam archive in digital form at tite.cs.tut.fi/tenttiarkisto (the page itself is only in Finnish but exams can also be found in English).

You can submit more exams either to the physical red box at the guild room or digitally to kopo at tietoteekkarikilta.fi (better return box coming soon ™)

Study group

The weekly study group for this spring is held every Wednesday at 14-16 in the guild room. Welcome to study!

Study Counsellor

Our members are encouraged to contact the information technology study counsellor if they have any problems or questions relating to their studies at TAU. The study counsellor is also a student at TAU who works part-time to help other students with their studies.

You can find the study counsellor's office hours here.


TiTe's board is elected for one calendar year, usually in November, at the guild's general assembly. The board consists of several board members who are responsible for different guild activities. The board later also nominates guild officials to help with certain activities. Together the board and the officials seek to provide the guild's members with the best possible support, events and services possible. All email addresses are of the form email@tietoteekkarikilta.fi.

The old boards can be found over at the TiTeWiki (currently in Finnish only).
