Teaching at TU Wien - Imparting Competence

Studienbeginn an der TU Wien

Information for prospective students

TU Wien MINT-Map gives an overview on support and information possibilities for prospective students.

A swift and successful study depends on many factors. TU Wien attempts to offer all study beginners a wide range of support measures. These measures are intended to enable the new students from the beginning to network and face challenges as well as to avoid known difficulties.

Take advantage of the offer or become actively part of the support offers (eg mentoring).


Wordcloud for the alignment course mathematics

The Equalization Course Mathematics (German: Angleichungskurs Mathematik - AK MATH) repeats the basic chapters of school mathematics for the upcoming study. Absolute recommendation!


Successful students of higher semesters support study beginners and returnees and accompany them through their first semester at TU Wien.

Barrier-free studying

TUW barrier-free - the service point for students who have disabilities, are chronically ill or are impaired in another form.

The level of protection at TU Wien is high and should be maintained. For the prospect of attendance in the winter semester 21/22, a high vaccination rate among all university members is of great importance. https://www.oesterreich-impft.at/impfanmeldung/, opens an external URL in a new window

First Alumnus of the Vienna PhD School of Informatics

Last week Stefan Rümmele defended his PhD thesis "The Parameterized Complexity of Nonmonotonic Reasoning" in front of an international jury. He finished his studies as the first alumnus of the Vienna PhD School of Informatics with distinction.

The research of Stefan Rümmele deals with the problem of solving efficiently fragments of provable intractable computational problems. Thereby the focus is on problems of nonmonotonic reasoning, a subarea of artificial intelligence.

Stefan Rümmele finished his Master of Science in Computational Intelligence at TU Vienna (2008), and he also received the Distinguished Young Alumnus Award of the Faculty of Informatics. This award is given to the best diploma thesis. Since 2009 he worked as project assistant at the research group for <link http: www.dbai.tuwien.ac.at _blank link_intern>Databases and Artificial Intelligence (DBAI) at the Institute of Information Systems. The same year he was accepted at the Vienna PhD School of Informatics. The jury of his defense was formed by Francesco Scarcello (Università della Calabria, Italy), Gerhard Brewka (University of Leipzig, Germany), and Reinhard Pichler (Advisor and head of DBAI), chaired by Hannes Werthner (director of the Vienna PhD School of Informatics).

The PhD School’s curriculum covers the main research areas of the Faculty of Informatics, and it is a three-year full-time program with scholarship. The program consists of fundamental and area courses which are held in English. At the moment the PhD school has 40 students, where each year a maximum of 15 PhD students is accepted. In 2012 the school had nearly 500 applications world-wide.
