TU Vienna looks back on a long tradition at the leading edge of scientific research and education: Founded in 1815 as k.k. Polytechnisches Institut (Imperial and Royal Polytechnical Institute), it was divided into 5 faculties in 1865. One year later the first freely elected rector was inaugurated.
TU Wien is very successful when applying for competitively given public funding as well as in the implementation of research projects with employers from economics and / or public authorities (third party funds). Numerous collaborations have also been institutionalised in various forms. In this way, the TU Wien is involved in numerous competence centres, networks, projects and Christian Doppler laboratories and has a large share in the Priority Research programmes of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).
Development work in almost all areas of technology is encouraged, first, by the interaction between basic research and the different fields of engineering sciences at TU Wien itself, and, secondly, within the framework of cooperative projects with other universities, research institutes and business sector partners. TU Wien has sharpened its research profile by defining competence fields and setting up interdisciplinary collaboration centres, and here clearer outlines will be developed.
In an expert organisation the employees are the crucial "capital". Correspondingly personnel recruitment and development are very significant for success. Numerous awards show the quality of the scientists. Also the demands on "general personnel" have risen with autonomy. TU Wien is also dedicated to training apprentices. Extensive implementation of job planning and review meetings and an adequate training and further education offer should help to optimally promote the employees. It is also a great challenge to ensure equal chances for both genders.
