We bundle TU Wien's open source efforts in the area of science and engineering

We represent several free open source projects in the area of science and engineering at the TU Wien, Austria. Our focus is on developing, providing, and utilizing free open source software, which is associated with our active research work. Our group's aim is to bundle our university's free open source efforts to improve synergy effects and to advance the open source tools themselves as well as their utilization. We are especially interested in working with young developers, to ensure that future generations continue on the path of developing free open source software for science and engineering.

We offer students the opportunity to work directly with young and vibrant research groups at our university on cutting-edge software projects. Not only will students get experience in developing free open source code but also they will get acquainted with advanced science and engineering challenges, broadening their horizons.

We are composed of a diverse set of free open source projects, covering various aspects of science and engineering-relevant topics. With our participating projects, we cover areas like calculating the carbon footprint within Google maps, an Internet of Things integration middleware, a cross-platform image viewer, a mesh generation tool for preparing highly intricate computer simulation models, and simulating Large Hardon Collider particle collisions.

Our free open source projects are:
