"Promoting scientific excellence and top-quality teaching". Following this guiding principle, the TU Wien combines basic and application-oriented research and research-led teaching at the highest level.

The Vice Rector for Academic Affairs is responsible for teaching staff and students at TU Wien. The Strategic Education Development Center supports her in strategic development, quality assurance in teaching and the operational implementation of teaching projects.

Strategic Education Development Center

The Strategic Education Development Center is a broadly based department within the Vice Rectorate for Academic Affairs. The Center sees itself as an operative link between the Rectorate, the lecturers and the students. Sooner or later, every lecturer and every student will be confronted with the Center's areas of responsibility or projects - even if this is not always visible.
