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.

Satzengrabenbrücke - Österreichs längste integrale Brücke

The bridge that stretches


Bridges change shape, which is why they are usually built with expansion joints. At TU Wien, a technology has been developed that makes it possible to forego these joints, thus saving time and money.

Im nahezu perfekten Gitter gibt es Stellen an denen ein Kohlenstoffatom zwischen den benachbarten Atomen (weiß) fehlt und daneben ein Stickstoffatom (gelb) eingebaut ist.

New quantum memory stores information for hours


Storing information in a quantum memory system is a difficult challenge, as the data is usually quickly lost. At TU Wien, ultra-long storage times have now been achieved using tiny diamonds.

Spiralförmige Wellen bilden sich auf der Rhodium-Folie. Sie liefern wichtige Information über die chemischen Eigenschaften der Oberfläche.

Chemical waves guide to catalysts of the future


Spectacular electron microscope images at TU Wien lead to important findings: Chemical reactions can produce spiral-like multi-frequency waves and thus provide local information about catalysts.
