Colourful and interdisciplinary - TA at the Technical University of Vienna

For the second time, students from the TU Vienna had the opportunity to get to know various areas of TA in the winter semester. They presented their results in open space of the main building at Karlsplatz.

Once again, students of the Vienna University of Technology had the opportunity to get to know TA up close and personal and to create practical examples in various subject areas. Yesterday they presented their projects on the first floor of the foyer of the main building, which also showed their term papers printed on posters.

The selected topics reflect the diversity of the research areas of technology assessment, the ITA supervisors, who accompanied the students during the course, agreed. This year, the students even delved a little deeper into the matter. TA has arrived at the TU and has taken a fixed place in the TU curriculum.

Colourful variety of themes

Vice-Rector Matyas was also impressed by the results, which the students proudly presented in short lectures in front of their posters. The selected topics included social robots as age-appropriate assistance systems in homes, 3D printers, product life, crypto currencies, digitization in the construction industry and electromobility.

TA is diverse and colourful, not only because of its interdisciplinarity, but also because it examines social and technical aspects and effects on people. (Picture: CC0)
