FiT pre-qualification

FiT (Women into Technology) - Technical pre-qualification and eligible bachelor degree programs

Since 2010, FH Campus Wien has been offering an annual technical pre-qualification course from March to June as part of the FiT (Women into Technology) program of AMS Vienna. This course prepares participating women and all persons who identify as women for technical studies - in particular for the full-time degree programs Computer Science and Digital Communications as well as High Tech Manufacturing.

The comprehensive supervision by lecturers at FH Campus Wien and working together in modern laboratories facilitate the acquisition of new knowledge. The majority of graduates from the previous pre-qualification courses have decided to start a technical degree program at a university of applied sciences or a comparable training program.

At FH Campus Wien, the full-time Bachelor's degree programs Computer Science and Digital Communications as well as High Tech Manufacturing fulfill the eligibility criteria for studying under the FIT program. Furthermore, the full-time degree programs Civil Engineering and Construction Management and Architecture - Green Building can be completed as part of the FiT program in consultation with AMS Vienna.
