Teaching

Teaching at TU Vienna
The education offered by the TU Vienna 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 Vienna from economy and industry,
governmental as well as research institutions are manifest evidence
for this.
Wide Range of Studies
The TU Vienna offers 19 bachelor-, 43 master-, 5 teacher
training and 3 doctoral programmes.
Since October 1, 2006, the study programmes have been taught
as bachelor and master programmes, according to the Bologna
process.
