University of Natural Resources & Applied Life Sciences, Vienna or simply BOKU (derived from its German name, Universität für Bodenkultur Wien, literally Vienna University for Soil Culture), first started in the year 1872 with very limited number of students. The main building of the university today was built in 1894. Currently, University has more than 10,000 students pursuing their education with help of around 1500 staff members.
It is research centre for renewable resources. If you are interested in Forestry and Wood Science, Water Management, Agriculture, Food Chemistry and Biotechnology, Natural Resources Management and Ecological Engineering, Landscape Design and Landscape Planning, Environment and Bio-Resources Management, then Vienna is the place to be.
There is a special PhD programme offered namely International Graduate School in BioNanoTechnology (IGS BioNanoTech). This programme offers the possibility to obtain a truly international graduate education in the fundamental and applied aspects of nanoscience with a biological emphasis. The original partners in the graduate school are the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) and the Austrian Institue of Technology (AIT) on the Austrian side and the Nanyang Technical University (NTU) on the Singaporean side. Affiliated with the school are already A*STAR in Singapore and Linköping University in Sweden. Recently also the Medical University of Vienna and the University of Vienna pledged to enter a joint PhD student program with the NTU sponsored by the City of Vienna, which is expected to affiliate with the framework of the IGS Bio-Nano-Tech.
