* The Vienna University of Technology is among the institutions that don't provide data on acceptance rates. This might happen because a university has programs where an applicant only needs to meet admission requirements to enroll and doesn't necessarily competes with others.

We estimate the above acceptance rate based on admission statistics of closely-ranked nearby universities with similar research profiles that do publish such data.

    Christian Andreas Doppler /ˈdɒplər/ was an Austrian mathematician and physicist.

He used this concept to explain the color of binary stars.
