Hello new fuksis! Welcome to Tampere University to study ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING! This page is meant for you fuksis, first year students. This page contains everything you need to get through your first weeks in UNI. You can find a technology student – English – technology student dictionaryat the end of this page. You will find new vocabulary, which you will surely need in the coming year. On this page we will also publish the orientation week schedule as long as it is confirmed from the university side. However, we can say this from orientation week that it will officially begin on 17 August 2020.
We, fuksi representatives of Skilta (the Guild of Electrical Engineering) Janne (fuksi captain) and Joel (electric shepherd), make sure that your fuksi year will be unforgettable. We will help you get acquainted with technology student culture and studying in university.
We've set up your own Facebook group for you to see via this link. In addition to Facebook, another important communication channel is Telegram, a link to the Telegram group can be found in the Facebook group mentioned above. Telegram is kind of like WhatsApp, but you don’t need a phone number to use it. If you have any questions about starting your studies, etc. you can contact our International Official Ida Sippola via Telegram by username @Idasip. Also you catch us in telegram by usernames @fuksikapu (Janne) and @kaljapaimen (Joel).
If you are interested to know more about your new guild, the Electric guild (Sähkökilta), you should follow us on Instagram “sahkokilta” and like our page Skilta on Facebook.
See you in the fall!
Fuksi: You, a first-year student, are one. On your first year, you get to enjoy all kinds of fun activities, which we recommend you to attend as much as possible!
Teekkari: At the end of the year fuksis will get dipped in Tammerkoski and then you will become a real technology student, teekkari.
Fuksipassi: This little booklet is full of different kinds of events that will give you points. You need 300 points to get dipped into Tammerkoski. The fuksi with the most points will get the honor of being called superfuksi and gets dipped first.
Kilta & Skilta: Guild (kilta) is a student organisation that keeps teekkari culture alive and ongoing. Skilta (Electrical guild) is your own guild. We offer coffee, food, games and company.
Wappu: The main event of the year is Wappu. It is over two weeks of different kinds of happenings and activities. The main event is on the 1st of May when fuksis get dipped.
Teekkarikaste: On the Wappu day (1st of May) fuksis will get dipped into Tammerkoski. During the dipping fuksis die and a teekkaris are born.
A couple of times in a year we are having events at a sauna (you know sauna; the Finnish substitute for superfood, since we don’t have seaweed). There we sing, have fun together, and of course go to sauna. These events are usually organized at Teekkarisauna called Mörrimöykky near TUT, but for example the semester’s opening sauna, Kiltojen Avajaissauna (Guilds’ Opening Sauna), takes place at Koo-Vee’s sauna in Ylöjärvi (some 50 km from Tampere).
Keskiasteen Välitutkinto is a different sort of degree, in order to complete which you need to visit a few Hervant-ean pubs. The event is organized right in the beginning of the semester, and the new freshmen (fuksis) will get to complete a degree of their own: the Fuksi Degree (Fuksitutkinto). This is one of the best ways to get to know Hervanta!
During Wappu Skilta organizes a sport-ish event called KumipelausISO. In this game the inner tube of a wheelbarrow acts the "ball". Usually it is played at a beach, though sometimes the game has taken a trip into the water too...
Excursions, a.k.a. XQs, are organized a couple of times a year. Usually it is about visiting companies in the area of electrical technology. "Rankka" is an excursion, which takes a few days longer.
n September Skilta organizes a wine festival at the courtyard of Sähkötalo (one of TUT’s buildings) with other g***ds having rooms in Sähkötalo. Anyone is allowed to prepare their own exotic beverage for others to taste; let the best wine win!
Skilta has an exam archive (both traditional and online) and a bookshelf, which is located next to Skilta’s study corner. You can borrow books and old exams as long as you remember to return them back to where they belong, so that others get to use them too.
During Wappu the courtyard of Sähkötalo is taken over by a huge barbecue party. This event gets together the most magnificent grills and the finest sausages. Also this event is organized in collaboration with other guilds.
