    During the studies

    We offer you an interdisciplinary degree program which spans two areas of growth - technology and health - perfectly preparing you for the practical world. Laboratory work offers you numerous opportunities of familiarizing yourself with the demands of your future career and of practicing concrete tasks. Interdisciplinary projects are part of our university's research strategy. As a student, you are part of the force driving interdisciplinary research where technology and health are overlapping. This in turn is useful in practice, helping you build on your acquired and scientifically assured knowledge in the field.

    A range of interesting companies and cooperation partners are represented at our "Firmentag Technik" (Company day Technology) at the main FH Campus Wien. Utilize your time between courses to establish contacts for your professional career and to enter into discussions with potential employers. We will support you towards realizing your ideas for exciting projects and offer you a stage: We exhibit the best projects to a wide audience in our Campus Innovation Lab at Open House or at the BeSt trade fair.

    Practical relevance is also guaranteed through our Campus Lecture evenings which are open to all and offer contributions by prominent experts.

    The Clinical Engineering Bachelor degree program is Austria's first academic qualification in the coordination of technical systems in the field of healthcare. The mix of topics ranging from medical, electrical and installations technology via IT and building automation (including heating, ventilation, air conditioning and sanitation) to medical basics, supplemented by project and process management skills, will be ideal for your wide range of opportunities in healthcare. Your extensive laboratory work during your studies will include concrete case studies which you may be faced with when practicing your profession. As the member a project team, you will be dealing with different tasks and problems in every semester.
    You may in your team design the furnishings and technical supplies of a doctor's practice or a section in a hospital. After planning, you will support the building phase including the required electrical, sanitary, heating and air conditioning installation and also include the necessary IT systems. You will furthermore plan the optimal medical facilities to suit the requirements of the specialist medical staff. To ensure perfect operation of the technical infrastructure, you will design and successfully implement the service and maintenance structure. With the above know-how and your high level of quality and cost awareness you will, after graduation, be qualified for a wide range of responsibilities in the healthcare sector.

    In the Clinical Engineering Bachelor degree program you will, in addition to comprehensive technical knowledge, also acquire basic know-how in the medical field and in process and project management.

    • The first two semesters of the Bachelor degree program will teach you the technical basics in building and electrical technology and also services and installation, power supply and IT networks.
    • In addition to IT, databases, facility management and process control, semesters three and four also focus on project and process management methods and on medical basics in the fields of anatomy, hygiene and medical systems.
    • The last two semesters concentrate on company and personnel management and on the basics of regulatory healthcare. During this time you will also write your scientific papers and complete your internship in the medical field. Any professional experience you may have in this field may be credited.

    Lecture contents

    The employment contract is the central structuring instrument for the use of one's own labor in the context of a dependent employment relationship. Labor law only applies to genuine employees, so other types of contract must also be presented and distinguished from the employment contract: free service contract, contract for work and services, partnership agreement.
    The social security relevance of this distinction is also presented. Furthermore, the basic rights and obligations of the contracting parties as well as the complex of continued payment of remuneration in spite of the absence of work are dealt with in the context of individual labor law
    .
    Finally, the problem area of termination of the employment relationship is also dealt with. The second and naturally interlinked topic is collective labor law, with the collective agreement and the works agreement as central instruments. In this context, the co-determination of employees is also addressed.
    Social law is presented in general (insurance and benefit relationships) and in the individual insurance branches (health, accident, pension and unemployment insurance).

    After graduation

    As a graduate of this program, a wide range of professional fields and career opportunities are open to you. Find out where your path can lead you.

    The rate of technical development in healthcare is giving rise to a strongly increasing demand for trained specialist hospital technicians. Healthcare organizations need experts with a high level of quality and cost awareness in the fields of procurement, maintenance and ongoing development of technical systems. As a Clinical Engineering Bachelor degree program graduate, you will be working in a rapidly developing and diversified technical environment and will be in high demand in the job market.

    The Clinical Engineering Bachelor degree program will convey the basics of medical systems, electrical engineering, IT and building control technology as well as medical basics and project management. This interdisciplinary know-how will enable you to successfully implement healthcare projects and will familiarize you with process management and quality assurance standards and methods. You may, for instance, work in the following core sectors:

    • Healthcare: Convalescent homes and hospitals, rehab centers

    • Electrical engineering: Furnishing and adaptation of buildings used for medical purposes

    • Medical technology: Furnishing of rooms used for medical purposes

    • IT: Furnishing, definition, commissioning, maintenance and coordination of IT infrastructure in healthcare facilities and in planning of equipment and plant

      • Building control technology: Furnishing of buildings used for medical purposes, project coordination

      • Engineering offices: Coordination, project control/management, consulting

      • Facility management in healthcare institutions: Maintenance, coordination of interfaces

      • Building and subconstruction: Project coordination of new constructions and annexes and conversion of buildings for medical purposes
