TU Wien has eight faculties: Architecture and Planning, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Sciences, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Mathematics and Geoinformation, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and Physics. The University is led by the Rector and four Vice Rectors (responsible for Research and Innovation, Academic Affairs, Infrastructure as well as Human Resources and Gender). Monitoring, advisory, legislative and strategic tasks, such as issuing curricula, are undertaken by the Senate (26 members). The University Council, consisting of seven members, represents the owners and acts as the governing body.

TU Wien places great emphasis on the inclusion of students in research programmes (researchbasedteaching), considering this an important criterion encouraging new generations of scientists.
TU Wien offers a broad range of studies from "A" like Acturial Theory to "T" like Technical Physics. Also Doctoral Programmes and Secondary School Teacher Accreditation are offered.

Central Divisions

A central task of the service facilities is to provide effective support to the research and teaching teams. Customer orientation, efficiency and perfect service is what matters the most. The TU Wien service providers offer IT Support, Building Services, Library Management, Public Relations, Personnel and Student Management and Documentation, just to name a few. Promotion of Women, Career Enhancement, Support for Disabled People and Internationalisation are also high priorities. World class research requires powerful infrastructure. TU Wien has bundled several Core Shared Research Facilities such as the VSC Superomputer, an X-ray Center, a Low Temperature Unit or the Centre for Micro- and Nanostructures.
