Tampere University is born on January 1, 2019 as the result of the merger of the former University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology, which together with Tampere University of Applied Sciences shape the second biggest higher education institution in Finland. The competitive edges of the new Tampere University are health, society and technology.

Tampere University consists of seven faculties: Faculty of Management and Business (MAB), the Faculty of Built Environment (BEN), Faculty of Education and Culture (EDU), Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences (ENS), Faculty of Information Technology and Communication Sciences (ITC), Faculty of Medicine and Health Technology (MET) and Faculty of Social Sciences (SOC).

The Faculty of Built Environment consists of two units: Architecture and Civil Engineering.

The Unit of Architecture is the second biggest School of Architecture in Finland (the two others are the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture and the University of Oulu Department of Architecture).

Since October 2018 I am an Associate Professor of Architectural Design at Tampere University of Technology, as of 2019 Tampere University.
