Data security, the efficient use of steadily increasing amounts of data, the transmission, processing, structuring, and storage of information – all of these topics are covered in this Field of Expertise. This field also includes the development of communication tools, software for computers and networks, and satellite systems.
In this FoE, TU Graz scientists are developing sustainable solutions that can be applied to meet the challenges of a continuously growing world population, increasing resource consumption, and the effects of environmental pollution and climate change. This field includes smart urban planning as well as innovative construction technologies and energy systems, the use of renewable energy sources, and green mobility.
Researchers in this FoE are working on new vehicle technologies and drive systems and information and data transmission for traffic control and positioning. The research findings contribute to improvements in land and air transport, space travel, production engineering and management.
This FoE places a focus on materials research. Researchers in this field increase our understanding of the structure and function of tiny components, develop new materials, and improve existing materials to make them lighter, more flexible, less expensive, or more robust.
People are the heart of the research focus in this field. The research findings contribute to the fields of medicine, environmental technology, industry and agriculture, and thus directly benefit people.
As an entrepreneurial university, we have created a continuing education portfolio in the thematic cluster of Techno-Economy to promote cross-industry innovation. This portfolio highlights aspects of management, technology, and economics. The core target group includes specialists and executives at all management levels who have a technical or scientific (initial) educational background and who would like to acquire interdisciplinary skills and leadership knowledge through customised continuing education.
