The faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology offers a Bachelor programme in electrical engineering, scheduled for three years. On top of this, four Master programmes scheduled for two years can be chosen:
Generally, courses are held in German. Therefore, German at B2 level is a prerequisite for studying at Bachelor- or Master-Level. Only the Master programme "Telecommunications" contains courses in English and can be studied without proof of German.
Courses are identified by course numbers of six digits, the first three digits - with a few exceptions - denoting the institute running the course. The main course types are
VO ... Vorlesung (lecture)
UE ... Übung (exercise)
VU ... Vorlesungsübung (lecture & exercise)
LU ... Laborübung (laboratory exercise)
SE ... Seminar (seminar)
The course volume is given in ECTS.

- General Information (Admsission)
- Application form - Bachelor Programme

Admission to a Master programme is possible with a fitting bachelor degree from another university. Additional exams might be imposed on you by the Dean of Studies, if the contents of your bachelor programme do not cover all prerequisites for the desired Master programme.
Applications for admission should be submitted as early as possible since processing might take considerable time and admission must be settled by September 5th for the winter term. Presently, EU citizens fulfilling the formal requirements, will be accepted without further selection process. Non-EU citizens have to submit a certification that they would be admitted for the same or a similar study in their home country ("special university qualifications"), in addition to the other documents.
The OEAD (Österreichischer Austauschdienst) offers support for students coming from abroad. For general information, please have a look at oead.at.
Please keep in mind that non-EU citizens must have a residence permit for Austria. For more info, please contact the Austrian embassy in your home country.
On top of the "Diplomstudium", a Masters Programme or an equivalent qualification a "Doktoratsstudium" (Doctoral Programme) is possible. The starting point for engaging in a doctoral programme is to look for and find a supervisor. This is especially important, if you have obtained your diploma abroad, as it is required in this case to have the written consent of your future supervisor on the application form. You can find potential supervisors by searching the web sites of appropriate institutes for research areas of your interest and by contacting the professors mentioned there.
Application form and infosheet are available at the Admission Office (Studienabteilung):
