What are the duties of the HTW?
The HochschülerInnnenschaft at the Technical College Technikum Wien, shortly HTW, represents, advises and helps students at the UAS Technikum Wien. We work closely with the Austrian Students’ Union and together we take a stand on educational and social policy issues that are student concerns.
We act apart from party policial considerations and put the welfare of the students at the FH Technikum Wien first at all levels.
