Based on the 1975 Austrian University Organisation Act, the University of Mining has been known as Montanuniversität Leoben since 1 October 1975. Having crossed the 1000-student threshold in 1981, student numbers for 2012/13 reached approx. 3,300 – the highest since the university was founded. Montanuniversität has offered only Bachelors and Masters programmes since 2011/12. The Bachelors programmes run for 7 semesters, ending with the academic title "Bachelor of Science", while the subsequent Masters programmes run for 3/4 semesters (depending on the subject chosen) and end with the academic title "Dipl.-Ing.".

Today, the motto of Montanuniversität Leoben is “We are the solution”, thus stating to research and teach for a better tomorrow; their actions are aligned with the five core values that guide and affect their mission: energy efficiency, climate neutrality, sustainability, zero waste, and circular design. Montanuniversität Leoben stands for top-notch student education in all bachelor's and master's programmes, and for excellence in research and science in our three areas of competence - advanced resources, smart materials and sustainable processing.

Leoben perfectly combines the benefits of city life surrounded by spectacular countryside with its central location in Styria. As a university city, Leoben is the innovative backdrop for business, training and education, science and research.
