Bachelor with Honors
Designed as a one-year extension of our regular Bachelor’s degree programs and comparable to the Anglo-American model, this excellence program is an additional offer to undergraduates in all our Bachelor’s programs. As a qualified student, you will receive opportunities that challenge your talents and bring out your full potential. You will also broaden and deepen your professional knowledge and personal skills. Individual mentoring, paired with an interdisciplinary, flexible approach, and distinct and exclusively performance-based rules are the conerstones of the program. Admission and graduation depend solely on performance.
Digital Skills (Digitale Kompetenzen)
The minor program Digital Skills (Erweiterungsstudium Digitale Kompetenzen) provides you with a fundamental, scientifically and methodologically high-quality education in the field of digital skills, which is geared towards lasting knowledge. As a graduate of the bachelor’s programmes at TU Wien, this is of fundamental importance for you and will make you competent and internationally competitive for the demands of modern practice. It is open to Bachelor students of all study programs offered at TU Wien. However, students in the field of informatics are excluded, as these skills are already taught in the course of their regular studies.
We strive for excellence in both research and teaching, and to offering our students a supportive learning environment. A well-balanced student-to-teacher ratio is a key factor to ensure that our students develop to their full potential. To achieve and maintain such an environment, the number of university places in informatics is limited.
In order to apply for admission to our Bachelor’s degree programs at TU Wien you need to take the Entrance Exam for Informatics.
We annually host the Studieninfo, an event for prospective students at which you can get informed about our programs and ask our lecturers anything you’d like to know.
