the TU officially changed the english translation of its name to TU Wien - as seen on its homepage.

Departments[edit]

I see little point in having an exhaustive listing of institutes and departments in an encylopedia article.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.125.149.104 (talkcontribs) 12 April 2006‎

I second that. Folks, this is an encylopedia article, not an organizational directory. What's next, a list of all lecture rooms? Phone and fax numbers of each department? Take a look at other university articles and think about what content you would expect as a user of Wikipedia. Poxy 09:02, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
I agree with that too! Maybe we could have an area of what the university is actually famous for (like what kinda research they do)...— Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.121.158.32 (talkcontribs) 29 June 2006
I disagree. Universities define themselves by their faculties - these are their scaffolds. I think it does make sense to have this in the article.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.170.48.34 (talkcontribs) 9 August 2007

Alumni[edit]

the list of notable alumni is a shame —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.114.10.35 (talk) 11:41, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Namechange[edit]

The TU Wien changed it's english name from Vienna University of Technology to TU Wien (or TUW), see Corporate Design of TU Wien. -- JoKalliauer (talk) 06:56, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
