To date, more than 23,000 students are studying here and more than 2,000 teachers and researchers are working - this is the largest specialized educational center in Austria dedicated to research in engineering and natural sciences.

Graduates are in demand in Austria, Europe and other countries of the world: former students usually develop the most successful career in the field of economics and administration, become scientists, researchers and teachers. The university is famous for its excellent technical and material base. Also students appreciate the fact of the possibility of choosing an individual specialization, high mobility of studying. In the educational process, various projects, research, and teamwork are constantly being developed, which helps students to grow as professionals and scientists.

International students appreciate the opportunity to enroll immediately after graduation, by passing the preparatory year, as well as the lack of entrance examinations. Also, a great plus is the opportunity to independently prepare your own curriculum (classes, practices and lectures, even exams), the opportunity to work during studying (10 hours weekly) - so you can cover part of the cost of education, gain valuable practical experience and internships. After the end of the program the student receives a visa for 1 year - as a rule, this is more than enough to find suitable, prestigious and qualified work.

The total number of faculties is 8, all of them provide studying in engineering and natural sciences, the most popular ones are the following:

  • Engineering Engineering;
  • Engineering Chemistry;
  • Information Management;
  • Technical Physics;
  • Economic Engineering Engineering;
  • Electrical Engineering;
  • Technical Mathematics;
  • Economic Informatics;
  • Space planning;
  • Geoinformatics;
  • Computer science (medical, technical, in the field of media; Data Engineering & Statistics, Software & Information Engineering);
  • Technology.

64 institutions function in which more than two thousand scientific workers, acting experts of the area work and the qualified, skilled teachers work.

Vienna Technical University reviews

Hello. In 2013, I graduated from school, entered a university, studied for a year and dropped out, as I realized that it was not mine and I was wrong with the choice. At the same time, I did not take my documents, but I think I was expelled a long time ago. Now I work as a programmer. Please tell me if I can enter the Vienna Technical University with my certificate from 2013 in any of the areas of Computer science or programming? Will I be able to work while studying (albeit part-time)?
Manager Daria
Hello Vadim. Yes, you can apply to the Vienna University of Technology on the basis of your high school diploma, assuming that you will have the German C1 level, which can be obtained in a year of language training at the Vienna College. On a student visa, you are allowed to work 20 hours a week during study, and 40 hours during holidays
I am a 1st year student at RUDN University. I want to transfer to the Vienna Technical University in the 2nd semester
To clarify information on how to transfer, and what is needed for this, you need to contact the manager.
Zdrastvujte. We need preparatory programs or courses for a technical university in Vienna. Thanks in advance.
