Technology for People

Our mission is "technology for people". Through our research we "develop scientific excellence",
through our teaching we "enhance comprehensive competence".

TU Wien (TUW) is located in the heart of Europe, in a cosmopolitan city of great cultural diversity. For more than 200 years, TU Wien has been a place of research, teaching and learning in the service of progress. TU Wien is among the most successful technical universities in Europe and is Austria’s largest scientific-technical research and educational institution.

Das Epoxidharz - in TU-Form gebracht und ausgehärtet

New synthetic resin – curing at the touch of a button


A novel method for curing of epoxy resins has been developed at TU Wien. Local UV flashes initiate a chemical cascade and cure the entire material.

Focused Beams of Randomness


It was considered a practically unreachable goal: focused light in the Terahertz regime consisting of a broad spectrum of wavelengths. At TU Wien (Vienna) this feat has now been accomplished – using a surprising trick.
