About BTD


The BEST Training Days are a two day soft skill lecture held in English at the Technical University

of Vienna. This will take place from the 9th to 10th of May in summer semester 2014.

At BTD, participants are trained in four soft skill topics by certified BEST trainers. Although it’s a lecture, the sessions are interactive and small exercises are used to provide insight into the topics.

BTD is an official course at the Technical University of Vienna and is supervised by Dr. Ernst Karl Hauswirth. By attending all four trainings you can earn 1.5 ECTS.



Each training has a duration of 4 hours with 20 minutes breaks in between. You participate in all sessions actively by performing exercises, as well as working in groups. Students will be divided into groups of 12 to attend each session. Concerning to the small sized groups the trainers are able to individualize their trainings and make them effective and very remarkable.

The topics for the summer semester 2014 are:

  • Communication
  • Project Management
  • Presentation Skills
  • Conflict Solving
