As part of our overall TU Wien ACE portfolio, international study trips are naturally not to be missed. In this context, we have held intensive discussions together with our partners in order to put together the best possible offers. As a valuable add-on to existing programs, but also as separately bookable learning experiences, our educational study trips are being revised and further expanded regularly.

Requirements: first academic degree, min. 3 years of work experience

Currently we offer the following international study trips together with our partners:
