The Guild of Science and Engineering Hiukkanen is the subject association for the students of the degree programme in science and engineering. Our purpose is to safeguard the interests of the students in our degree programme and help them in their studies. Hiukkanen also offers a bunch of leisure activities.
The members of our Guild are those members of the Student Union of Tampere University who have paid the Guild’s yearly membership fee of 5 euros. Hiukkanen’s membership fee can be paid for example at our guild room for our board members.
Our members are mostly students with physics, maths or chemistry as their major. Some of them will also go through pedagogic studies and get the ability to become teachers. We also have an international bachelor’s program for science and engineering. More info about our studies can be found from here.
The insignias of our Guild are our purple overalls and our beloved mobile sauna Tarzan. Our guild room is located in the basement of Sähkötalo in room SA025. You can find your way here by going down the spiral staircase next to Sähkökilta, you’ll see our purple door right after going through the fire door. In addition to the guild room, we also organize lots of different activities that can help your studies or on the other hand provide counterbalance for them. Examples for our activities are
- weekly sports possibilities (floorball and other sports shifts, kyykkä)
- sauna evenings and social nights (with Tarzan being there of course)
- a yearly kyykkä tournament
- guidance and counselling for fuksis and olders
- study trips (excursions)
The Guild’s functions are run by the board chosen yearly in the autumn general meeting and officials chosen by the board. All actual members may apply to get involved in the board’s operations. Working with the Guild is voluntary work where the salary is paid in the awesome experiences and dozens of new friends gained from being active. All help is accepted in the Guild and you don’t have to be a board member to be an active operator. Get fearlessly involved and join our jolly purple group!
We are also in constant collaboration with the Tampere Science and Engineering club TaSciEn, which is a club for our international or international-minded students. Find more info about TaSciEn from their website or from here!
