The Dean's Office of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration supervises the following studies:
- Mechanical Engineering (Bachelor/Master)
- Mechanical Engineering - Management (Bachelor/Master)
- Chemical and Process Engineering (Bachelor/Master)
- Material Science (Master)
- Biomedical Engineering (Master)
- Manufacturing and Robotics (Master)
- PhD studies with relevance to one of the previously mentioned studies (Doctorate)
The following individual studies have already been approved by the Dean of Academic Affairs:
- Mechanical Engineering with focus on Mecatronics
- Material Sciences and Technology
- Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering (ME) / Mechanical Engineering - Management (ME-M)
If you are interested in those programmes, please enroll into the Bachelor's Programme Mechanical Engineering oder Mechanical Engineering Management and then contact the Deans of Academic Affairs (Assoc.Prof. Michael Filzmoser, PhD,, opens an external URL in a new window Univ.Prof. Dr. Paul Mayrhofer, opens an external URL in a new window) as well as the STUKO Chairwoman (Ass.Prof. Dr. Isabella C. Skrna-Jakl, opens an external URL in a new window).
The English-language Master's Programme still requires German at the C1 level. The following modules can be taken in English to complete the corresponding Master:
- Advanced Modules (6 required):
- Numerical Methods for Fluid and Thermal Engineering (both)
- Surface Technology (both)
- Fluid Mechanics 2 (both)
- Materials Technology (both)
- Human Resource Management and Leadership (both)
- 1 individually from the Dean of Academic Affairs approved Advanced Module that consists of lectures held in English to an overarching theme. A query of courses taught in English can be found on the supervised studies page or after the listing
- Vocational Field Orientation Modules (2 required):
- Tissue Biomechanics (both)
- Composite-Structures (both)
- Aircraft Design (both)
- Entrepreneurship and Innovation (ME-M)
- Financial Management (ME-M)
- Managing People and Organizations (ME-M)
- Production Information Management (ME-M)
- Risk Management (ME-M)
- and/or one individually from the Dean of Academic Affairs approved Vocational Field Orientation Module
Information for the admission of international students can be found on the homepage of the Admissions Department.
Information about which courses will be held in English, opens an external URL in a new window this academic year, or in English on demand, opens an external URL in a new window, can be found in the Tiss system, opens an external URL in a new window using the advanced search or by clicking on the relevant links.
A well-established network with universities worldwide is available to you. Degree relevant completed courses are credited towards the degree. Advanced internships can also be carried out at industrial companies after prior consultation with the dean of studies.
Students spending study time abroad does not come under our direct area of responsibility. If you would like to spend part of your course studying abroad, please contact the International Office, opens in new window of TU Wien. Further information about our various programmes and cooperations can be found there.
The following regulations/requirements for the issuance of an elective internship certificate (equivalent to the courses 'Wahlübungen Technologisch') apply specifically to Chemical and Process Engineering (for Sustainable Production):
- The industrial internship activity is relevant to the process engineering degree program.
- A written report is submitted by the student, which establishes the reference to the process engineering study and includes at least the following contents:
- the task
- the activities carried out
- if applicable - if no NDA prevents it - summarized results of the activity
- a summary.
- A confirmation of the supervisor in the industrial company (e.g. service certificate), from which the type and scope (hours of work per week) of the activity in terms of ETCS points and an evaluation in terms of a grade can be derived.
- One week of full-time work corresponds to approx. 1 ECTS, provided that exclusively subject-relevant activities were carried out.
Dates, deadlines and holidays can be found in the Academic Calender.
Information on the admission procedure for students that study one of the three studies we supervise at TU Wien can be found when searching for bachelor programmes with aptitude assessment procedure (VoR-Phase), opens an external URL in a new window.
The Student Council of Mechanical Engineering provides many services for students, including giving enrolment advice.
This advisory service is available in September (more specific timing can be found at Students Council for Mechanical Engineering, opens an external URL in a new window) in the small auditorium in the main building (ground floor), Karlsplatz 13. It is part of the Student Union, opens an external URL in a new window at TU Wien.
AKMATH is a course at TUW that is offered before and during the beginning of the first semester aiming to make the start of your studies easier. The course is dedicated to adapt different mathematical knowledge by repeating fundamental mathematical topics during the lecture as well as during the exercises.
The course is counted as a free elective subject and worth 1 ECTS credit points. Further information can be found in the Anerkennungsverordnung, opens an external URL in a new window.
