Habilitation Procedure

Because of the current situation - as a COVID-Measure - you can submit a habilitation project (together with all necessary supplements - see fact sheet for habilitation applicants) now also in digital form. All further administrative steps will also be carried out without personal contact until further notice - I am available to answer any questions at: georg.penthor@tuwien.ac.at.

The application for the teaching license should be addressed to the Rector and the Dean's Office submitted for Architecture and Planning. 

 The settlement of the habilitation procedure is regulated and described in the guidelines for the habilitation procedure as well as in the notes to the articles of association "habilitation procedure" section of the statutes (only available in German).

It is advisable that the applicant makes an appointment with the Dean prior to the submission of the documents.

The contact for habilitation affairs at the Dean's Office is Mr. Georg Penthor. There is also a fact sheet, which is, as well as the guidelines, only available in German.

Faculty Colloquium

We would like to inform you, that the Rectorate has amended the section "Habilitation procedure" according to which a faculty colloquium is to be held before the (Habil) submission in the future, which ideally should take place one year before the intended submission. In the process, post-doctoral candidates receive feedback and the recommendation as to whether they can be submitted. All groups of people are invited to the faculty colloquium.

The Faculty offers colloquia twice a year - below you will find the upcoming dates:

  • Due to the currently prevailing situation around the Corona Virus, the faculty colloquium had to be canceled for Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

  • Tuesday, 20th of October 2020 - start 10:00 a.m. (Registration deadline: 2020-10-05)

Venue: Conference room A + R, main building, Karlsplatz 13, stair 6, 4th floor, 1040 Vienna
We ask for habilitation candidates who would like to get their habilitation at the faculty in the near future to register (via mailto: georg.penthor@tuwien.ac.at) for one of the two dates.
The duration of each colloquium depends on the number of responses. The time frame per presentation is a total of max. 30 minutes (talk time: 20 minutes + 10 minutes for questions from the audience).
