Accomodation

Campus information

To find your way around the TalTech campus, please take a look at [1], there is also a map available there.

Accommodation

The dormitory situation in TalTech is very tight, so please make sure you book your places well ahead. 

The information how to book a place at the dormitories can be found here

For new students, please make sure you file your applications on the 1st of June! The system opens on June 1st, and the sooner you apply the higher you are in the queue. You should not file it earlier either because then your application will end in a pile with all other students, and it takes longer. Student can choose only two houses on the application, so have a look at different dormitory buildings here:[2] Siidisaba building is located not in the campus, but in Kristiine area, which is closer to city centre, but away from university. Campus office will start giving out offers starting July 3. Have a look at the campus website: [3] For students who plan to move after Autumn semester, November is about the latest time when to file an application with CampusTTU. Please note that students who have not stayed in TalTech dormitories can follow the link "Send application". Students who have previously stayed at the dormitories need to follow the link "e-kyla login" and file the application from there. You can send yourself a password reminder from the page.

    • If you will teach this semester (any subject, not just cyber security related teaching; does not have to be in TalTech), then you can sign up for ITC8001 in your study plan. Make sure you send Rain Ottis a summary of your teaching plans first, though, because he needs to assess if it meets the requirements. The summary should cover the topics, volume (total teaching hours), level (MSc course, BSc course, etc.) and type of teaching (lectures, hands-on, teaching assistance, etc.).
    • If you are not teaching this semester, but have considerable teaching practice in the past, you can get credit for ITC8001 via the VÕTA/APEL procedure.
  • The policy for handling academic dishonesty (plagiarism, cheating, etc.) in the IT Faculty.
  • TalTech academic policies. Please note §23.
  • There are multiple versions of the curriculum. In general, the one that applies to you is the one that corresponds to the year of your enrollment.
  • If you have not done so already, please indicate your specialization (Cyber Security, Digital Forensics or Cryptography) in OIS. If you do not make a selection, then some of the courses will end up in the wrong study module. Ask the Dean's office for assistance, if necessary.
  • General note: you can replace courses with more advanced IT courses that have at least the same ECTS. Consult with Siiri before committing to any changes, though.
  • General note: if you take more ECTS than required in any module then this will count towards your Free Choice module. It is not necessary to actually move the courses to Free Studies in this case.
  • General note: contact Siiri Taveter if you need to move a replacement course to the correct module (it may show up under Free Choice). Please note your specialization in your request (Cryptography, Cyber Security or Digital Forensics). You must have passed the course before it can be moved.

Sources for free choice courses

You can look for additional free choice courses from the following sources

Scan the OIS study portal for available courses this semester (takes effort, but it is useful to learn to find your way in OIS). You can find all the courses given in English (timetables of all international programs) in TalTech by looking at OIS -> Timetables -> click to GB flag in the center of the page.

ITX8512 Practical Training in Information Technology

You can get credits if you have working experience in IT field. More information can be found here: ITX8512

Thesis and graduation

The fourth semester is reserved for writing your thesis. This is a demonstration of your professional knowledge and skills, and the process typically involves the following steps (with the help of your supervisor):

  • identify a problem that matters
  • research possible solutions, and select or develop the most suitable one
  • implement the solution
  • analyze the results of your work
  • present your work in a professional manner in written (thesis) and oral (thesis defence) form

  • ITX8063 (Information Systems Hacking Attacks and Defence) is replaced by ITC8070 (Information Systems Attacks and Defence). The new course will be 4 ECTS and there are limited slots available. Do not take it, if you have already passed ITX8063. NB! Schedule change: it takes place every week on weeks 9-16 in SOC-212 on Tuesday 1745-2100.
  • If you enrolled in 2014 or earlier, then the replacement courses (see above) may not display in the correct modules. Do not worry about this, we will move them at the end of the semester. Just contact Rain Ottis during the exam session and let him know what the situation is.
  • A special course on forensics takes place (ITX8220/ITX8221 - you should pick a code that you have not used yet) in the second half of the semester. This will be a hands on course that is going to look at the forensics tools in Kali Linux. It is taught by Erika Matsak. If you consider taking it, you will have to sign up for it by September 10th. NB! Schedule change: it takes place every week on weeks 9-16 in ICT-403 on Monday 1930-2100 and Thursday 1930-2100.
  • The seminars ITX8040 and ITX8230 (depending on your focus) are taking place together on Tuesdays, 1600-1730 in room ICT-315. They are designed to help you with your thesis and should be taken on the third semester. However, you can also take it during your first semester, if you already have some idea about your thesis. You can only sign up for one seminar. If you have passed either one in the past, then you can attend, but not get credit for it.
  • There will be a Special Course on Cyber Security (ITX8050) that focuses on national and international cyber security questions (policy/strategy level). The course is designed to prepare candidates for the Cyber Challenge, although there is no guarantee that those who pass the course actually get to go. Last year we sent a team to Switzerland and they did very well. This course will be run by Tiia Sõmer during the second half of the semester, on Thursday evenings at 1800-1930 in ICT-315.
  • IDN0110 and ITX8080 are not offered this semester.
