We would like to offer you a good level of supervision during your studies. As such, changes have been made to the framework conditions as of autumn 2016. At TU Wien and the University of Vienna, an admissions procedure is carried out for all applicants (Computer Science and Business Informatics) as of the 2016/17 academic year. This admissions process will only take place once per year, regardless of whether you want to commence your studies in the winter semester, or in the summer semester.

Brief overview of the offered studies

If you decide to study computer science, you will deal with the modeling and design of a wide variety of procedures and processes in reality. For this, knowledge of mathematical basics is just as necessary as technical and social skills. One of the seven master’s programs in computer science or business informatics can be added to the chosen bachelor’s degree for further professional qualification and specialization.

The Media Informatics and Visual Computing Bachelor's course combines training in key technologies and technical processes in the fields of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Visualisation and Augmented/Mixed/Virtual Reality with an education in the design of innovative interfaces. 
The course is founded on formal, IT and mathematical principles. In addition, working with issues of media IT requires an interdisciplinary approach to the basics, covering the skills and knowledge needed for creative and applied design relating to media and their production processes.

Opportunities for graduates lie in application-based research, the development of information and communications systems and the creation, implementation and evaluation of interactive components in such systems, in areas such as visual computing (computer graphics, computer vision, image processing, visualisation, mixed reality etc.), multimedia systems and tangible computing.

Medical Informatics E 033 533

The Medical Informatics Bachelor's course provides integrated training in key technologies and technical processes in fields such as Life Sciences, Software and Requirements Engineering, Visualisation and Usability, IT Planning and Operations, Data Protection and Process Engineering, combined with education in the principles of medicine.

The course is founded on formal, IT, medical, software technology and mathematical principles. In addition, working with issues of medical IT requires an interdisciplinary education that will include the skills and knowledge required in clinical thinking, such as diagnostic processes and documentation. 
Opportunities for graduates lie in the analysis and development of health, information and communications systems or medical software, in the analysis and development or adaptation of clinical processes, in the construction and management of IT systems in healthcare and in application-based medical IT research.

Software engineering is concerned with the development of software, from analysis and design to implementation, quality assurance and software maintenance. Information engineering covers the generation, collection, processing, distribution and presentation of information. Based on scientific principles and methods, the bachelor's course in Software & Information Engineering brings together the entire process of software development with the communication of knowledge in the field of information processing.

Opportunities for graduates lie in the development of information processing systems, either as a team specialist or in a managerial role, and in support roles in research.

The bachelor's course in Computer Engineering is concerned primarily with networked embedded computer systems, which to an ever-increasing extent are to be found not only in technical systems such as medical devices, automation systems, cars and aircraft but also in everyday objects. Despite its primarily IT-orientated approach, dealing with networked embedded systems requires an interdisciplinary training covering (micro-)electronics, telecommunications and the principles of physics.

Opportunities for graduates lie in application engineering at the software/hardware interface, in high-level development tasks in the field of embedded systems and in support roles in relevant research fields.

Business Informatics is concerned with information, knowledge and information processing in organisations and in society. It thus lies at the interface between people, organisations and IT. The teaching covers information and communications systems in business and in society, and specifically the analysis, modelling, design, implementation and evaluation of such systems. In addition to its primarily IT-orientated approach, the success of such systems relies on due attention being paid to technical, economic and social dimensions. IT and economics are combined in both theory and practice. 
Opportunities for graduates lie in the analysis and optimisation of business processes and related information processes, in the planning, realisation and management of information systems, in application-orientated system development, in IT-supported business management on the basis of a unified view of the business and its environment as an information system, and in communicative roles between IT and business.

Study conditions

Computer Science is a very popular area of technical study. Students are taught by academics with an international reputation. With a high degree of international networking, an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and widespread cooperation with industry and business, students will gain a sound specialised and practice-based education. Furthermore, state of the art computer laboratories are available to the students.

Career prospects

Job prospects are varied, as Information Technology affects virtually all areas of life. Examples extend from hardware-related software development in the automotive industry to medical applications, the internet and the development of IT solutions for business and administration.

The solutions to future challenges in our information society can only be found in close cooperation between science and industry. Time and again, important projects in our company have been worked on by the internationally renowned scientists from the Faculty of Informatics at TU Wien. Furthermore, many of the best IT graduates from TU Wien are working for Siemens on innovative solutions in the fields of medical, energy, traffic and environmental technology.
