Health care is unthinkable without perfect interaction between many technical systems. Health institutions therefore always need experts to design technical systems, control their operation and especially to guarantee their safety. The comprehensive degree program will qualify you as a hospital technician. You will coordinate and optimize technical projects and process flows specifically in health care, thereby significantly contributing to its flawless operation.

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.
