Our mission is “technology for people”.

Through our research we “develop scientific excellence”, through our teaching we “enhance comprehensive competence”. TU Wien has eight faculties lead by deans: Architecture and Planning, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, computer Sciences, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Mathematics and Geoinformation, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and Physics. The University is led by the Rector and four Vice Rectors (responsible for Research, Academic Affairs, Finance as well as Human Resources and Gender). The Senate has 26 members. The University Council, consisting of seven members, acts as a supervisory board.

Studies

Studying at TU Wien means gaining a broad range of basic knowledge whilst simultaneously being given the opportunity to specialise according to subject and interest. TU Wien places particular emphasis and value on the involvement of students in current research programmes.

The university offers a broad spectrum through its 18 Bachelor, 31 Masters and 3 Doctoral study  programmes and its many university courses. Some 30,000 students are already taking advantage of this spectrum and the number is increasing.

Research

Research at TU Wien is focused on six focal areas. These five pillars represent strengths and skills of TU Wien going back many years, and they strengthen its profile in international competition. Within these key areas, work is carried out on an inter-disciplinary basis and the research spectrum is being constantly developed. The "Additional Fields" provide further, equally important areas for research. All research activities are organised into a matrix.
