With its eight faculties - mathematics and geo-information, physics, technical chemistry, informatics, civil engineering, architecture and regional planning, mechanical engineering and business science, electrical engineering and information technology – the Vienna University of Technology covers the classic engineering disciplines.

The TU Vienna has a great pool of specialists who are acting in a wide range of different topics in research, teaching and as partners of the economy. More than 2000 scientists do their research and teaching at highly advanced and modern institutes – in summary about 70. Although fundamental research has priority at the TU Vienna applied research is also done. Moreover services are offered as high-tech problem solving and examination expertise for industry and economy. Innovation orientated companies are highly interested in co-operating with the Vienna University of Technology because of its high-tech and high-quality research and its openness for requests of the economy.

The Vienna University of Technology puts great emphasis on co-operation between its own institutes as well as with other universities. Therefore the TU Vienna participates in several European Union (EU) and other research programmes.

Multiferroics - magnetic properties influenced by electric voltage - open up new sensor prospects
02 December, 2013
In the extraordinary materials called "multiferroics’, electric and magnetic excitations are closely linked. Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) have now shown in an experiment that magnetic properties and excitations can be influenced by an electric voltage. This opens up completely new possibilities for electronics at high frequencies. There are many ideas for future applications - wherever it is desirable to combine the respective advantages of magnetic and electric effects, the new magneto-electric materials could be used. This could lead to new kinds of amplifiers, transistors or data storage devices. Also, highly sensitive sensors could be built with electromagnon technology.
Layered oxide heterostructures promise improved solar cells
20 February, 2013
Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology show that a recently discovered class of materials - Layered oxide heterostructures - can be used to create a new kind of solar cell.
Rotating vortex beams based on silicon nitride thin film - a fresh approach to electron microscopy
11 November, 2012
A method of producing extremely intense vortex beams, rotating like a tornado, has been discovered at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) and offer new possibilities for electron microscopy.
New measurement technique helps catalytic converters with lower ignition temperatures
05 November, 2012
What is the required operating temperature that an efficient automotive catalytic converter requires? Tiny metal particles require a minimum temperature, which, thanks to a new measuring technique, the Vienna University of Technology can now clarify. It should then be possible to build catalytic converters which take effect in cars as soon as possible after start-up.
