What you can offer

You have an intrinsic interest in technical systems and their functionality. You are enthusiastic about electronics in general and its many applications in everyday life. You are convinced that the potential has not been exploited by far, which is why you enjoy tinkering with innovations. Subjects such as mathematics, C programming or the course in "Electronic equipment design" stimulate you to implement your ideas and offer practical experience to assist you in your professional challenges. The specialized courses in environmental technology or automation are sure to offer something of interest to you.

What we offer you

We cooperate closely with renowned companies in commerce and industry. You may benefit from this in many ways: Our research and development laboratories set up by Phoenix Contact, an internationally operating company in the field of electrical engineering and automation, are state-of-the-art. This guarantees diversified teaching and learning in automation technology. A number of interesting companies and cooperation partners are furthermore represented at our "Firmentag Technik" (Company day Technology) at the main FH Campus Vienna. Make use of the time between your courses to socialize, to establish ties for your professional future and to enter into discussions with potential employers. You will participate in R & D projects, helping to shape the dialog between practice and science at the FH. We will also gladly support you in finding contacts for your internship or studies abroad. You will in this respect benefit from our extensive networking with international universities. 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. Practical relevance is also guaranteed through our Campus Lecture evenings which are open to all and offer contributions by prominent experts.

What makes this degree program special

  • Specializations in Environmental Technology or Automation Technology
  • Top infrastructure: From the photovoltaic system on the roof of FH Campus Wien to the Phönix Contact Competence Center for automation
  • Additional offer: Certifications requested by the industry

The degree program's strong practical orientation is a defining advantage. We have extensive projects running in our laboratories and test and measurement facilities. In our environmental technology specialization field, students are working with a photovoltaic demonstration and research system. The panels are installed on the roof of the FH Campus Wien and inject renewable power into the local network. This offers our students the opportunity of learning and researching based on a practical photovoltaic system in operation. Another benefit offered to students is the facility of using computer simulations to carry out experiments and research projects at any time, irrespective of the weather.

Our new Phoenix Contact Technology Competence Center will satisfy all your needs for learning and research in automation, the second field of specialization.

Within the framework of this degree program, we also offer the opportunity of obtaining certifications such as the LabView Certificate, PMA Project Management Austria Level D or the Process Management Certificate, all of which are in high demand in industry.

 


What you will learn in the degree program

In addition to a thorough technically training, you will also learn about decision and leadership competency, so important in our industry. You will obtain the project management qualifications you need for complex and planning activities.

  • In three semesters of basic studies you will deal with the theoretical fundamentals of mathematics, electronics and electrical engineering as well as with economics, personal development and management. Business English is part of your basic competency.
  • In the fourth semester you will select you specialization (from the fourth to the sixth semester):
    • Automation: You will learn to develop automation systems for technical processes and deal with the basics of reliability, safety and process control. In seminar projects, you will deal with concrete examples of practical automation.
    • Environmental technology: You will learn more about processes and interrelationships, cycles of materials and variables affecting eco systems and will gain comprehensive insights into environmental framework conditions for the ecological design of electronic devices. Concepts for alternative generation and storage of electrical energy and the utilization of renewable energy round off this specialization field.
  • The sixth semester comprises an internship of seven weeks. An existing career in this field may qualify you for a credit.

  • Procedure
    The written admission test comprises a number of tests to assess your logical thinking faculties and your basic scientific knowledge. (Duration of the written test: approx. 60 minutes) All applicants will then be invited to an admission interview for feedback on the results of their written test. You will also be queried about your personal circumstances, including your motivation for your choice of degree program. (Duration: approx. 15 minutes per candidate) Should you fail to meet the entry level requirements for the degree program, you will after admission be advised on how to best prepare yourself for the specific subject.
  • Criteria
    The criteria for acceptance are based solely on performance. Points are awarded for the written test results and the admission interview. The applicants will be ranked correspondingly.

Getting started

Buddy network

Experience shows that many questions arise during the application phase and start of the degree program. We therefore propose that interested persons and applicants should network with higher semester students in the same degree program as yours. Personal and individual contact with your buddy will facilitate your entry into the degree program.

To the Buddy network

Bridging Courses

First semester students in technical or structural engineering degree programs have the opportunity of attending special refresher and preparatory courses pertinent to their degree program in subjects such as mathematics, physics, English, electronics, C programming etc. This will facilitate entry into the FH degree program and ensure your success in important degree program subjects.
