Study Engineering at Austrias most specialised University

As a technical university with a unique profile, Montanuniversität Leoben claims a special position in both the Austrian and international academic landscape. The study programmes offered - with their specific focus areas - can only be pursued in Leoben. As a result, Montanuniversität graduates are amongst the most sought-after academics of all. 

Students relaxing before lectures 

As one of the smallest universities in Austria, Montanuniversität offers students an outstandingly good infrastructure and the best possible attention from academic staff. Due to its comfortable size, students benefit from a close cooperation with their lecturers and any problems can be solved swiftly and efficiently. The concept ‘mass university’ is foreign in Leoben. Montanuniversität has been ranked The Best University by HR managers for the sixth time in a row, in a survey carried out by the Austrian magazine Format. 


Studies are based on the value-added chain, from raw materials and production materials, on to the finished product and to the end of the life cycle with recycling and disposal. The range of studies is complemented by multidisciplinary fields such as Industrial Energy Technology and Industrial Logistics.

Available degrees

Upon successful completion of their graduate studies, students receive the academic title of Diplomingenieur, which is equivalent to the qualification of a Master of Science. Students can continue their studies with a doctoral degree (six semesters). During their studies, all students are required to complete a six-month internship at a company that is relevant to their fields of studies.

Knowledge of the German language is required (level B2) for all BSc degrees.

Many of our MSc programmes are held in English.
