About Vienna University of Technology

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.

In 1872 its name changed to Technische Hochschule (College of Technology), and in 1902 the first doctorates were awarded. The institution has borne its current name Technische Universität Wien (Vienna University of Technology) since 1975. In 2004 TU Vienna reached full autonomy through the University Act 2002.

M.Sc. Business Informatics

The English master program Business Informatics aims at a strong international embedding in research and economics. In order to ensure this, all the lectures of the master program are held in English and the master’s thesis is written in English.


The area of Business Informatics covers information and knowledge as well as information-processing processes in organizations and society. It therefore builds the interface between humans, organizations, and information technology.

The subjects of the research-driven teaching are thereby information and communication systems in economics and society, especially the analysis, modeling, design, implementation, and evaluation of such systems. Besides the primarily computer science-oriented approach, the success of such systems requires the consideration of technical, economic, and social aspects. Thereby, computer science and economics are combined.

Three main role models are considered in this master program:

  • Employment in an enterprise or a public organization, including managing responsibility or consulting (Master practitioner).
  • Qualification for a scientific career in the course of a doctorate study or PhD program in technical, social, or economic sciences (Scientist)
  • Future activity within an area of innovation, either as a free lancer or entrepreneur or a high position of an enterprise’s innovation branch (Innovator)

Faculty for Technical Chemistry

M.Sc. Technical Chemistry — Chemical Process

This specialization is derived as a research-led teaching from a research focus on process engineering and biotechnology. In the area of Bioprocess Engineering is especially enlivened by a new professorship.


The master studies technical Chemistry provides an in-depth, scientifically and methodologically high-quality, sustainable knowledge-oriented training, which the graduates and alumni opened the way for a scientific technical training — about in the context of a relevant doctoral program — as well as for an activity especially in the chemical industry and in all sectors of the industry, in which chemical processes of importance, empowers and internationally competitive makes.
