New: Degree programmes in the field of health increase the diversity on offer
This transfer into tertiary education to a University of Applied Sciences was the result of a call to tender from the City of Vienna. The FH Campus Wien was the successful course-providing body. At present all FH-degree programmes are involved in the authorisation procedure of the FH Council.
Increasing the diversity on offer
"The variety we offer has increased and allows a networking between the degree programmes", says Wilhelm Behensky, Managing director of the FH Campus Wien. Around 800 additional students are expected, who will choose one of the new University of Applied Sciences bachelor degree programmes:
Biomedical Laboratory Science, Dietology, Occupational Therapy, Logopedics - Phoniatrics - Audiology, Orthoptics, Physiotherapy, Radiological Technology or Midwifery.
New Headquarters for the FH Campus Wien
"An inrush, which we will be able to master with the building of our new University of Applied Sciences building", continues Behensky. The new building has been planned by the Architecture Firm of Delugan Meiss, which, in 2005, as well as the FH Campus Wien building also won the competition to design the Porsche-Museum in Stuttgart. The foundation stone for the new headquarters will be laid in summer 2007 as part of the FH Campus Wien summer party. Then, in autumn 2009 most of the staff and almost all the academic sections will move into the new building at the Altes Landgut, Wien 10. Until then the staff and lecturers of the new degree programmes from the field of “health“ will remain in their current locations at five Viennese hospitals.
