Another "Die Presse" scholarship awarded to a happy winner

MSc Environmental Technology and International Affairs

 „It was by chance that I dropped on the TU website - where the scholarship was announced - just in due time, one week before the deadline ended“ explained Wolfgang Otter. He is the happy winner of the scholarship awarded by the daily newspaper "Die Presse" for the MSc postgraduate program ETIA – Environmental Technology and International Affairs for the seventh time.

On the occasion of presenting the certificate to the winner on April 9, 2013, Prof. Hans Puxbaum, Academic Director TU Vienna, highlightened Mr. Otter´s motivation and job experience which persuaded the jury to choose him. Mag. Christian Ultsch from „Die Presse“ emphasized on the success history of the MSc ETIA course since 2007 Prof. Gerhard Loibl encouraged the winner by telling him that the second study year at TU Vienna might be easier for him.

Otter received his BSc in Architecture at the Vienna University of Technology in 2010. Actually he is working at Architekturzentrum Wien where he will have to reduce working hours or quit for attending the MSc ETIA Program.

This MSc Program was installed in 2007 as a unique cooperation between the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna and TU Vienna. Graduates of technical studies are supposed to get an overview about the political and legal frame of environmental technology, whereas lawyers, economists and graduates from other studies should get acquainted with the technical basics (focus on: air, water and waste as well as energy, climate and sustainable development).

Late applications for the ETIA Program starting in October 2013 are still possible.
