Improve Your Skills

Our double degree programs allow you to gain a more comprehensive knowledge of a specific subject as you’re able to study in two different countries. Although a double degree is a worthwhile endeavor and can be very beneficial, it does demand a little more commitment and self-discipline, while requiring excellent time management skills as you adapt to alternative teaching styles and overcome language barriers. But your effort will result in greatly improved personal skills, such as flexibility and cultural openness, as well as in enhanced language abilities.

Expand Your International Network

A double degree can be a real advantage to those who want to pursue a degree where international experience is vital—and informatics certainly is such a science. Not only does it strengthen your employability prospects, but you will also improve your networking abilities and expand your personal and professional connections.

Our Programs. Your Opportunities.

We currently offer two double degree programs in cooperation with INSA Lyon’s Département Informatique and TU Darmstadt, respectively:

Double Diploma INSA Lyon

This integrated degree program is aimed at students at INSA Lyon’s Département Informatique and students of a master degree program at TU Wien Informatics. You will switch to the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées Lyon (INSA Lyon) after completing your first year of study. After one year, you complete an internship and work on your diploma thesis under the co-supervision of a faculty member of TU Wien Informatics and a faculty member of INSA Lyon. During your stay at INSA Lyon, you remain enrolled at TU Wien and may be required to pay tuition here. No fees are charged by INSA Lyon. Overall, the double degree program lasts 6 semesters.
