Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering & Natural Sciences!

To a great extent, our standard of living depends on the continual advancement in engineering and technology. Change, transition, growth and progression constantly shaped our future. For almost 50 years, the Johannes Kepler University has offered degree programs and organized research projects in various technical disciplines, playing an ongoing and instrumental role in shaping our future. The Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences not only pursues and supports distinguished international research and developmental cooperation, but also focuses on hands-on, real world applications designed for use in industry and business.

Many dilemmas found in business and industry can be addressed by applying scientific techniques and methods such as innovative approaches in support of resolving problems; this has been an important and essential contribution to Upper Austria as a location of business and industry. An extensive and significant amount of publications have documented our scientific achievements, research contracts and assignments, projects sponsored and supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the European Union (EU), special research fields and dissertations. By establishing competency centers such as the Christian Doppler laboratories, as well as spin-off companies, the TN Faculty has become an internationally appreciated partner for technologically focused corporations.

Research conducted at the institutes at the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences is characterized by having an interdisciplinary nature, finding innovative technical solutions, conducting modern, cutting-edge research & development as well as having modern alignment. Divided into five main technical disciplines, the institutes focus on both base-knowledge and application-oriented research.

Inaugural Lectures by Junior LIT Researchers

During their inaugural lectures at the Uni Center, professors Martin Kaltenbrunner and Rick Rabiser talked about their respective areas of research.

„Linz offers the advantages of city life but has beautiful green spaces as well. That, and the large number of programs available in the field of natural sciences, make the JKU the perfect place for me to study.“
