University courses on energy and environment at TU Wien

The TU Wien has been successfully running university courses since 1989. They are intended for individuals who have a sincere interest in the relevant field and who would like to pursue this interest further by working towards a supplementary vocational qualification. The courses are academically based and offer a practical educational experience at university level.

The courses offered by the TU Wien are mainly designed for those in full employment, so that the classes are organized in blocks, taking place in the form of modules. The language of tuition is German or English, depending on the course.

Environmental Technology and International Affairs

This postgraduate MSc Programme is the result of the cooperation between the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna and the TU Wien. Over the last few years the importance of environmental issues and discussions has been increased on a local, regional and global level. This puts new and increased demands on people being confronted with the political, juridical, technical as well as economic side of environmental questions.


Sustainable Construction

The aim of this university course is to generate an awareness of holistic lifecycle-oriented approaches to construction based on the three-pillar model of sustainability. This means that graduates will be in a position to implement the principles of ecological, economic and socio-cultural sustainability in project development and design and realisation, as well as in the operation and demolition of building structures.


Renewable Energy Systems

The MSc Program "Renewable Energy Systems" is the first cross-border postgraduate program in Austria dealing with the future issues of alternative energy production. It is conducted by TU Wien in cooperation with Energiepark Bruck/Leitha. The program is designed more and more cross-border in view of the growing markets in European countries and the expected investments of enterprises in these countries. The international orientation of the program is reflected not only in the curriculum, but also in the cross-border cooperation with universities and organizations of other countries in the scope of country modules. These tailor-made country modules are offered to gain in-depth knowledge on energy markets in selected European countries.
