At IST Austria, being part of a vibrant community of scientists from diverse backgrounds starts from Day One.
Students have the opportunity to join a number of extracurricular activities, groups, and social events, all stemming from the outside interests of our dynamic student community.
There is a range of clubs and social groups that meet regularly at IST Austria. Here is a sample of some of them.
Under the direction of Karin Mitosch and Lenka Matejovičova the IST Choir has developed a diverse repertoire of international music.
