Welcome to the web site of the Fachschaft Doktorat. We are the representation of interests of doctoral candidates at TU Wien. We act in self-governing bodies at the university. We support and advise you in your matters of studies and research. Aside from this we offer workshops and a social programme. We are very pleased about your feedback and suggestions—especially from people who go the whole hog and want to reinforce our team or introduce their issues and positions in one of our jour fixe meetings.

There are currently no office hours planned.
