Study in Vienna – In the Heart of Europe
Vienna is an internationally recognized location for schools of higher education where contacts are made and networks are built. The expansion of our campus to the Vienna Institute of Biotechnology (VIBT) by autumn 2009 will strengthen our network connections, both in Austria and abroad. Internationalisation is a lively process, towards which the faculty and staff at the FH Campus Wien are extremely dedicated: Internships, study abroad, or participation in cross-border projects. It is up to you to take advantage of these opportunities.
Within the framework of your Master’s disseration, you will have the opportunity to participate in research and development projects (R&D) that are part of the programme, thus allowing you to take part in an active exchange between the scientific and practical fields while still attending FH Campus Wien. Companies from the private sector as well as universities are involved in these R&D projects in the fields of red and white biotechnology.
