Faculty of Informatics, TU Vienna

The Faculty of Informatics is one of eight faculties at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna), which carries out research in informatics and business informatics.

Informatics and business informatics are young and innovative disciplines which play a central role in our modern information society. The application of these disciplines, information and communication technologies (ICT), is gradually penetrating into all areas of life and evolving at a rapid pace. The development and use of ICT is affecting not just business and administration but the personal lives of a growing number of people.

The key role of informatics calls for intensive efforts in research and teaching. The Faculty of Informatics strives to play an active role in national and international research. Its activities are guided by the principles of academic excellence, the networking of research and teaching, and by a sense of awareness for the social responsibility it has.

The faculty consits of seven institutes and the central services “Office of the Dean” and the “Coordination and Communication Center”. The major fields of studies are computer science and business informatics, which are the biggest and fourth biggest courses of study, respectively, at Vienna University of Technology. The five main research areas are Distributed and Parallel Systems, Computational Intelligence, Business Informatics, Computer Engineering, and Media Informatics and Visual Computing.
