Modern manufacturing processes are becoming increasingly complex and keeping pace with this trend demands corresponding multidisciplinary skill. The core elements of this degree program are therefore know-how about the latest production and manufacturing technologies, about mechanical engineering, automation and robotics and also about management and economics. The very broad education qualifies you for many positions dealing with product lifecycle in the technical industry.

You have a pronounced passion for technology, construction and technical processes. You are interested in a product's progress along the manufacturing chain and in developing your own concepts towards further automating or optimizing production. Your way of working - thinking ideas through to the end - are to your advantage here. You are keen to be part of the quest for alternatives to materials, since you take sustainability and preservation of resources seriously. You consider knowledge of economics as a good supplement to the technical degree programs.
We cooperate closely with renowned companies in commerce and industry. You may benefit from this in many ways: Our state-of-the-art research and development laboratories were set up by Phoenix Contact, an internationally operating company in the field of electrical engineering and automation. This guarantees a wide spectrum of teaching and learning in automation. A range of interesting companies and cooperation partners are also represented at our "Firmentag Technik" (Company day Technology) at the main FH Campus Vienna. You may utilize your time between courses to establish contacts for your professional career and enter into discussions with potential employers.
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. You may, furthermore, participate in R&D projects and in developing the dialog between practice and science.
The project-oriented and strong practical orientation of this study course is a major advantage. Taking into account the full life cycle of a product from design to implementation is a priority of ours. Students may, for instance, design a racing car, be responsible for its manufacture and race it themselves - as with the international Formula Student construction competition of the Society of Automotive Engineers, for instance. The possibilities and potentials of 3D printing are a salient High Tech Manufacturing topic. A project combining computer tomography with 3D printing is currently running in the Radiology section. A special program scans parts of the body and the three dimensional data are then analyzed, for producing plastic models on the 3D printer for mouth, jaw and facial surgery. This includes following trends in material research and integrating these in the study course. These currently comprise bioplastics, increasingly considered as materials for construction.Within the framework of their studies, we can also offer students of the High Tech Manufacturing Bachelor's degree program certifications in demand in industry, such as the LabView certificate and PMA Project management Austria Level D.The Bachelor's degree program in this form is unique in Austria.
The focus is mainly on the four major fields of competency in contemporary industrial engineering degree programs: Technological basics, automation, economy and leadership and management competency.
