Thomas Kittenberger was born 1965 in Vienna and grew up in Krems in Lower Austria. After the Matura at HTL Mödling in 1984 he studied Electrical Engineering and Communications Engineering at the Vienna University of Technology and graduated in 1991 on wave propagation in multilayered piezoelectrical materials. After military service he worked at Siemens Developement Center for Electronis in Vienna for about one year. Interested in computer sience, he joined the department of Computer Technology at the Vienna University of Technology in 1993 as Assistant Professor, where he was responsible for a course on digital system design, worked with a team of 30 students on a fieldbus networking project called Picbus and organised the international fieldbus conference FET'95 in vienna.

From 1997 to 1999 he was engaged in adult education on the whole broad range of computer sience in different education centers in Austria. In 1998 he founded the company Kittenberger Embedded Systems in Vienna where he works with a growing team on several software and hardware development projects for companies like Frequentis, Arri or Insight Instruments in the fields of digital communication, fieldbus systems, motion picture camera electronics, graphic display electronics, graphical user interfaces and biomedical measurement systems.

Since 2002 he is lecturer at the University of Applied Siences Technikum Wien on topics like Embedded Systems, Real Time Operating Systems and Control Theory. In 2003 he became coordinator at the Research Group Embedded Systems and in 2006 he developed two control theory courses for the new Master Degree Programme Embedded Systems. In 2009 an 2010 he was member of several development teams for the reaccreditation of bachelor and master degree programmes an he was elected as a member of the University Council.

In 2010 he qualified as a FH-Professor and he was granted a four year endowed educational professorship for Embedded Control and Navigation by the City of Vienna. The aims are deepening and broadening the knowledge on control theory and navigation technology on the university, development of educational models, for instance inertial navigation systems and MAV's, and the input of expertise in education and research.

Since Feb. 2015 Thomas Kittenberger is a visiting lecturer at the Dept. of Embedded Systems.
