Our History

Read more about the most important milestones in our history below.

20 Years of Excellence, Innovation and Cooperation

TTTech was established in 1998 as a spin-off of the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) based on 30 years of research in Europe and the US. This extensive research and development work provides a mature basis for our core technology to build applications in safety-critical areas.

TTTech provides a mature cross-industry technology and has an established clientele in different industries. Thus we see a high potential for a great success of TTTech products in the market.
