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.
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.
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.
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.
