The innovations we develop are aimed at social design, organizational development and the formation of networks. Participation and inclusion are our principles that we follow in interdisciplinary cooperation. Our goal is to enable the social, ecological and technological sustainability of complex problem solutions.
Complex social problems require comprehensive research design, which is why we advocate evidence-based practice interlinked with politics, business and society. We make a contribution to the exchange with society and business, innovative teaching and interdisciplinary expansion of knowledge as well as applied research and participatory design.
At the interface between social sustainability, innovative technology development and ethical responsibility, we conduct research in interdisciplinary teams and develop teaching and learning formats with a focus on solutions and applications.
The TU Wien is the largest scientific-technical research and teaching institution in Austria. More than 4,000 scientists are researching "technology for people" in five main research areas at eight faculties. The content of the studies offered is derived from the excellent research. More than 27,000 students in 55 degree programmes benefit from this. As a driver of innovation, TU Wien strengthens the business location, facilitates cooperation and contributes to the prosperity of society.
Along with the TU Graz and the MU Leoben, the TU Wien is a main partner in the association of Austrian Universities of Technology. Founded in 1915 as Polytechnisches Institut, the TU Wien was designated as Technische Hochschule, gaining the right to award doctorates as early as 1901. From 1919 on, women were allowed to enroll. In 1975, the Technische Hochschule was renamed to Technische Universität.
Having an extensive experience in inter-university and interfaculty collaboration, the TU Wien drives the Polymer Competence Center Leoben, the Science Center on the Arsenal/Wien, the Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory as well as the Plus-Energie-Hochhaus. Recent projects such as the Aspern Mobil Lab or the Pilotfabrik make TU Wien one of the largest and foremost networked universities in Austria. Lighthouse projects such as the Centre for Informatics and Society (C!S) were established in recent years.
As the largest universities of applied sciences (UAS) in Austria with more than 7000 students, the UAS Campus Wien offers a large variety of curricula in numerous disciplines, which are almost entirely focused on research-driven education.
The UAS Campus Wien can rely on a multitude of excellent and highly qualified experts both in science and practice. Focusing on practical research and development, students and researchers alike profit from UAS Campus Wien's close ties to multiple national and international professional networks, as well as the cooperation with universities, socio-economic organisations and economic partners.
The departments Applied Nursing Science, Applied Life Sciences, Building and Design, Health Sciences, Social Sciences, Technology as well as Administration, Economy, Security and Politics offer more than 60 bachelor and master curricula as well as part-time master degree programs.
Founded in 1994, the FH Technikum Wien was the first institution being granted the status University of Applied Science. Since 2012, FH Technikum is a member of the European University Association (EUA), and in 2015, she received the Erasmus+ Award in the category university education, being the first FH in Austria to do so.
FH Technikum offers the widest range of technical studies in Austria and includes an excellent economic and international network. She is a network partner of the FEEI (Fachverband der Elektro- und Elektronikindustrie). Having these contacts, students of FH Technikum are offered brilliant career chances.
Lighthouse projects like the two Josef-Ressel-Centers (Christian Doppler Gesellschaft) in Verification of Embedded Computing Systens and Innovative Platforms for Electronic-Based Systems characterize the actual range of relevant impulses out of FH Technikum Wien.
