Linz Institute of Technology (LIT).

The Johannes Kepler University has always been known for more than just engineering and has a reputation for tradition, technological creativity and accomplishment.

The Linz Institute of Technology, or simply LIT for short, brings these ideals together, becoming the place where tradition meets the future. Researchers from different departments and across faculties in the field of technology and engineering can come together and connect here. Many internationally active companies are involved, providing their support as cooperation partners in order to drive research of tomorrow.

Teaching and research go hand-in-hand at LIT. JKU scientists conduct cutting-edge research and pass their expertise on to the next generation. Students "learn by doing" and are actively involved in conducting 'the research of tomorrow'. All subject areas and departments at the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences work together here.
