  • The results of the Student Parliament Elections 2024

    From March 4th to March 20th, 2024, this year's Student Parliament elections took place. TalTech Student Parliament is the highest decision-making body representing students, and has the right to adopt TalTech students views and decisions. Representatives of all Schools of TalTech are represented in the Student Parliament. The Student Parliament stands for the interests of TalTech students, elects representatives to the decision-making bodies of the university, elects the board of the Student union, directs projects that improve students learning and activities, etc. The Student Parliament meets regularly once a month. In addition, each member of the Student Parliament chooses one of the two committees to work with: the Academic Committee and the Student Life Committee. All TalTech students had the opportunity to apply from February 5 to 15. There were a total of 25 candidates across the five faculties: 4 in the School of Engineering, 4 in Estonian Maritime Academy, 5 in the School of Science, 7 in the School of IT and 5 in the School of Business and Governance. One of the candidates from the School of Economics, Mark Toomsalu, gave up her place in the Student Parliament because she was elected as a member of the board of the student body in the field of student life. There are 15 members in the Student Parliament, and the mandates were distributed among the faculties as follows: four mandates each for the School of Engineering and IT, three mandates for the School of Business and Governance, and two mandates each for the School of Science and the Estonian Maritime Academy. The elections were held in the Student Portal. The elections were very successful in terms of voter turnout: this year’s voter turnout of 12% is the highest it's been for the last five years.

More information about the application process: https://taltech.ee/en/student-union/student-parliament If you're not sure whether you'd like to run for the Student Parliament, here are some thoughts from your representative. DANIEL AASORG (School of Business and Governance) Why did you choose to run for the Student Parliament? It seemed like an interesting opportunity to become more involved in student life while simultaneously representing my faculty. Why should someone from your school consider running for the Student Parliament? In my school, someone should consider running for the Student Parliament because it provides a great understanding of how the university as a whole operates, and, of course, it offers the opportunity to represent our school at a higher level. What has being a part of the Student Parliament given you? Being part of the Student Parliament has given me a better understanding of how things work at the university and how various issues are addressed and resolved. RAGNAR KRAMM (School of Information Technologies) Why did you choose to run for the Student Parliament? I ran for the Student Parliament because I felt it was my last chance to contribute to university affairs, as the final semester was about to begin. Another reason was the low participation of IT students in candidacy. I couldn't let my faculty be underrepresented. Why should someone from your school consider running for the Student Parliament? Students from the school of IT should run for the Student Parliament because it's a great opportunity to get involved and gain an overview of important matters related to student life and the university in general. The school of IT is one of the largest schools at TalTech and needs proactive representatives! What has being a part of the Student Parliament given you? Being in the Student Parliament has provided a thorough understanding of TalTech's operational model, an excellent opportunity to connect with people from other schools, and a great chance to practice presentation skills and clear self-expression with fellow representatives. ANNA JÜRISSAAR (School of Science) Why did you choose to run for the Student Parliament? I wanted to be involved in making significant decisions related to student life and gain experience in being part of a decision-making body. Why should someone from your school consider running for the Student Parliament? The School of Science is small, making it particularly important to have students in the Student Parliament, who are willing to stand up for our school and express their opinions. Advocating for fellow students is a significant responsibility, but also a fantastic opportunity to create a better and more diverse learning environment for classmates. What has being a part of the Student Parliament given you? As we mostly analyze official documents, my analytical skills and functional reading ability have improved. I have gained a much better understanding of how the university operates, and my horizons have expanded. The representative body also provides opportunities for new connections, and collaborating with active students has been enjoyable and rewarding. Being in the Student Parliament is definitely more exciting when you dare to actively participate and explore more. Additionally, I liked the feeling of importance when representing my school. HELENE ARMILDE KUDRE (Estonian Maritime Academy) Why did you choose to run for the Student Parliament? I ran for the Student Parliament to represent Maritime Academy students and gain a broader understanding of the university's operations, being part of the student union and the work of the Student Parliament. Why should someone from your school consider running for the Student Parliament? Students from the Maritime Academy should consider running for the Student Parliament to stay directly informed about the main campus and the activities, plans, and goals of other faculties. It is an opportunity to be part of decision-making processes that affect all TalTech students, including those from the Maritime Academy. What has being a part of the Student Parliament given you? Being in the Student Parliament has primarily provided me with an understanding and knowledge of how our university's structure functions. Additionally, it has offered new insights and directions that are helpful for internal development work within my school. ANET MARII PAUMETS (School of Engineering) Why did you choose to run for the Student Parliament? I ran for the Student Parliament on a friend's recommendation. It seemed like a great opportunity to have a say in TalTech student life. Why should someone from your school consider running for the Student Parliament? Anyone considering candidacy should definitely go for it. You get to stand up for your school and contribute to discussions on various topics. The more diverse the people in the Student Parliament, the better the representation of students. What has being a part of the Student Parliament given you? Throughout this year, I have learned a lot, especially about how things work at TalTech. It has made me think differently about things and helps me see the bigger picture.

  • DIGITAL WASTE

    January 26th is a digital clean-up day, in which Tallinn University of Technology also participates. Imagine all the emails, photos, videos, messages, posts, and memes you've sent, saved, or shared online. Pictures that you keep on your phone or in the cloud but don't use. Or two-year-old emails or spam that there's no reason to look at. All of this quietly contributes to the atmosphere's CO2 emissions. The use of people's smart devices and the internet accounts for a whopping 3.7 percent of the world's total CO2 emissions! According to scientists, online communication could globally consume nearly 20 percent of the world's electricity by 2025. Did you know that: 11.1 tons of CO2 is the average Estonian's annual carbon footprint. 570,000,000 trees are needed to make Estonia carbon-positive. The carbon footprint of 1000 emails in your inbox is equivalent to driving from Tallinn to Rapla by car. Why bother deleting digital clutter? Benefits for the climate and your wallet - before acquiring more data volume, free up the excess. By clearing cloud and disk space, you save money and energy. Security - careless storage of data can be a security risk for you. Less confusion and noise - finding and sharing information becomes easier. Use it longer - you can use devices for a longer time, and the memory capacity won't fill up as quickly. By the beginning of the week, nearly 1500 gigabytes of data deletion had been registered on Telia's 2024 Digital Cleanup Day website. This is equivalent to about half a million photos or the data size of one and a half thousand full-length movies, but the cleanup effort is still gaining momentum. Contribute for the sake of the environment and yourself! WHERE TO START? Delete apps you don't really use. Ditch the newsletters you don't actually read. Empty the recycle bins and downloads folders of your devices and environments. Delete files you don't really need from the email server and cloud banks. Start with the biggest ones. Abandon video transmission if sound is sufficient. Drop the video in HD or 4K quality if standard quality is enough. If you know what you're looking for, go straight to the right page instead of searching the web. Organize photo albums both on your device and in the cloud where they are backed up - delete duplicate photos and pointless pics and keep only the ones you really want to see again. Think about what your social media post gives to the world. If you can't figure it out, don't post. If the image or file is available online, don't email it, just link to it. If not and you need to send it to several people, upload it yourself and link to it. Block spammers. Redirecting them to a separate folder is still a resource for your devices and email servers! Do all this regularly, not just on digital cleaning day. How does the last Friday of every month sound? In addition to digital cleaning: Shut down your computer when you are away for at least two hours. Use your devices as long as possible. Look for a repair before buying a new one. Take old electronics to the waste station, not the household waste bin. Record your cleaned-up items here, and the IT department will inform you about the extent of digital clutter we've cleared. The form is open until 02.02.2024, after which we can make summaries and compare the contributions of employees and students.
