Overview

Modern manufacturing processes are becoming increasingly complex and keeping pace with this trend demands corresponding multidisciplinary skill. The core elements of this degree program are therefore know-how about the latest production and manufacturing technologies, about mechanical engineering, automation and robotics and also about management and economics. The very broad education qualifies you for many positions dealing with product lifecycle in the technical industry.

What you can offer

You have a pronounced passion for technology, construction and technical processes. You are interested in a product's progress along the manufacturing chain and in developing your own concepts towards further automating or optimizing production. Your way of working - thinking ideas through to the end - are to your advantage here. You are keen to be part of the quest for alternatives to materials, since you take sustainability and preservation of resources seriously. You consider knowledge of economics as a good supplement to the technical degree programs.

What we offer you

We cooperate closely with renowned companies in commerce and industry. You may benefit from this in many ways: Our state-of-the-art research and development laboratories were set up by Phoenix Contact, an internationally operating company in the field of electrical engineering and automation. This guarantees a wide spectrum of teaching and learning in automation. A range of interesting companies and cooperation partners are also represented at our "Firmentag Technik" (Company day Technology) at the main FH Campus Vienna. You may utilize your time between courses to establish contacts for your professional career and enter into discussions with potential employers.

We will support you towards realizing your ideas for exciting projects and offer you a stage: We showcase the best projects to a wide audience in our Campus Innovation Lab at the Open House or at the BeSt trade fair. You may, furthermore, participate in R&D projects and in developing the dialog between practice and science.

What makes this degree program special

  • Focus on manufacturing technology, mechanical engineering, automation and robotics plus business and management skills
  • Top infrastructure: From the robotics laboratory to the Phoenix Contact Competence Center for automation to the 3D printer for rapid prototyping
  • As a member of the OS.Car Racing Team with the Formula Student design competition in Spielberg

The project-oriented and strong practical orientation of this study course is a major advantage. Taking into account the full life cycle of a product from design to implementation is a priority of ours. Students may, for instance, design a racing car, be responsible for its manufacture and race it themselves - as with the international Formula Student construction competition of the Society of Automotive Engineers, for instance.

The possibilities and potentials of 3D printing are a salient High Tech Manufacturing topic. A project combining computer tomography with 3D printing is currently running in the Radiology section. A special program scans parts of the body and the three dimensional data are then analyzed, for producing plastic models on the 3D printer for mouth, jaw and facial surgery.

This includes following trends in material research and integrating these in the study course. These currently comprise bioplastics, increasingly considered as materials for construction.

Within the framework of their studies, we can also offer students of the High Tech Manufacturing Bachelor's degree program certifications in demand in industry, such as the LabView certificate and PMA Project management Austria Level D.

The Bachelor's degree program in this form is unique in Austria.


What you will learn in the degree program

The focus is mainly on the four major fields of competency in contemporary industrial engineering degree programs: Technological basics, automation, economy and leadership and management competency.

  • The basic degree program imparts scientific engineering skills in mathematics, mechanics, manufacturing technology, electronics and IT. Semesters 3 and 4 focus on pertinent basics such as planning and control of manufacturing processes, high-tech production procedures, logistical processes, business administration fundamentals, leadership and management.
  • The fifth semester is all about your internship.
  • In the sixth semester, you will choose between two fields of specialization.
    • Leadership in social systems - social system integration: You will here be specializing on team leadership and control. You will learn about abstract models of leadership and promotion of social systems in the context of organizations and deal with intervention techniques for professional leadership, personnel management and staff and organizational development.
    • Technical systems integration: You will increasingly deal with modern communication and control systems, structuring of automated manufacturing systems, application of IT systems in process control and monitoring, also future innovative developments in the field of Intelligent Manufacturing Systems.
