Teaching at TU Wien - Imparting Competence

Adalbert Prechtl, Vice Rector for Academic Affairs

The education offered by the Vienna University of Technology is rewarded by high international and domestic recognition. The chances for graduates for getting an attractive employment are very prosperous. The high demand for graduates of the TU Wien from economy and industry, governmental as well as research institutions are manifest evidence for this.

By establishing TUcareer, the Career-Center, in 2004 the Vienna University of Technology made it even more easy for graduates to start a career.

Modern studies with great flexibility

The content of the teaching courses are actualized continuously and adjusted to the requirements by industry and economy. The contents in technical and natural sciences are completed by an offer of courses covering personality development and so called “soft skills” (e.g. foreign languages, management know-how, etc.). Students of the TU Wien are very flexible because of their solid know-how in technical and natural science. They get a solid basic knowledge in combination with a specific knowledge which can be chosen by each student subject to their personal interests. Great emphasis is also put on the participation of students in current research projects.

Multiplex range of studies

Students of the TU Wien can choose between several fields of study. They are offered with one exeption (teacher training programme) as bachelor and master programmes. Bachelor programmes last for 6 semesters. Master programmes can be completed within further 3 or 4 semesters following a bachelor programme or equivalent postgraduate degree.

According to its status as a university, the Vienna University of Technology offers postgraduate doctoral programmes as a follow up to all master programmes. Besides the already well established doctoral programmes of Technical (DSc Tech) sciences and Science (DSc) social and economic affairs (DSocEcSc) has been introduced in 2004 as a new doctoral programme.

More emphasis is at the moment and will in the future be put on at the following three important accents: internationalization of education, e-learning and continuing education. These tasks are fulfilled by the approved International Office, the Teaching Support Center and the Continuing Education Center.

There will be no selection procedure for the academic year 2013/2014 at the Vienna University of Technology (Press Release)
