21 Teaching 21 Teaching at TU Vienna The education offered by the TU Vienna is rewarded by high international and domestic recognition. The chances for graduates for getting an attractive employment are very prosperous. The high demand for graduates of the TU Vienna from economy and industry, governmental as well as research institutions are manifest evidence for this. Wide Range of Studies The TU Vienna offers 18 bachelor-, 31 master- and 3 doctoral programmes. Since October 1, 2006, the study programmes have been taught as bachelor and master programmes, according to the Bologna process.
