Those are the winners representing the seven faculties of TU Graz for this academic year 2022/2023 (from left to right in the photo):
In autumn 2022, TU Graz launched its casting call "Be The Face - Sei das Gesicht der TU Graz”, thus searching for students from all seven faculties to represent their university online and offline for one year. With 70 applications, the response to the casting call for our seventh campaign was again impressive. Students from many different countries and fields of study applied, and the seven winners were selected based on the individuality of the students, their field of study and the overall composition of the group.
The first professional photo and film shoot with our seven Faces was set for November. Our Faces 2022/2023 will make their appearance in a variety of media: on the web and on social media as well as in print publications such as folders and brochures. The Faces of previous campaigns have also appeared on billboards, on the TU Graz fair booth, on flags and even on trains.
Are you ready to become a Face of TU Graz? In autumn 2023 there will be another opportunity to apply. You will then find more information on this website.
The first photo and film shoot featuring this year’s winners was held in November 2022 with a professional photographer and make-up artist. Portrait photos and group pictures were taken. For spring, photo shoots featuring study, research and the campus areas as well as the city of Graz will be scheduled.

It was games like Minecraft that kindled my passion for architecture. Studying at TU Graz has given me the inspiration to be creative and follow my own path. I think I’d like to open my own studio at some point.
Elena Kropek, 20 | Architecture, Bachelor
I chose TU Graz because of its international projects and close ties with industry, as well as Austria's strong reputation in tunnel construction. Later on, I would like to work with planning teams from the construction consulting sector and do a PhD.

I've always been passionate about technology. My degree gives you solid foundations and there are a wide range of specialisations in the master's programme. This will open all sort of doors for me when I graduate.
Laura Strauss, 19 | Mechanical Engineering and Business Economics, Bachelor
I'm interested in maths, physics and music, and I wanted to learn how to make high-quality recordings. My degree brings these subjects together and highlights new aspects that I can focus on later.

I think process engineering is the perfect blend of chemistry and technology. I really like the study spaces at TU Graz. In the future, I would like to work as a researcher in a lab.
