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 (TREY) who have paid the guild's yearly membership fee of 5 euros. Additional information and payment instructions can be found here.

Our members are mostly students with physics, mathematics 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. students. Depending on the major and minor subjects, our graduates have a wide variety of special knowledge.

  • annual kyykkä tournament
  • annual The First Party that starts the academic year

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!
