What makes this degree program special?

The degree program attaches great importance to linking our field of work to other technical disciplines of our department, as is the case in practice also. We are for instance working on six axis robot control together with the Embedded Systems Engineering section. High Tech Manufacturing is responsible for construction of the robot. Embedded Systems Engineering integrates all controller-related aspects in the planning and implements the control. Further close cooperation exists in this section with Rapid Prototyping, in the three-dimensional capture of object dimensions using 3D printers.

Embedded Systems Engineering controls capturing of object data in this respect.

Your professional future will benefit from our options for specific continuing education offered by the degree program. You may also obtain certifications often required in industry, such as the LabView certificate and/or PMA Project Management Austria Level D.

What you can offer

With your basic technical qualification you are already familiar with production/manufacturing technology and production logistics and control. You are, however, keen to obtain a higher qualification your Bachelor's degree program. You are keen to distinguish yourself from other applicants, especially against the background of ever more flexible production systems of globally operating companies and increasingly externalized technology locations. Your qualities include innovational spirit, creativity and the desire to lead a successful team.

What we offer you

The High Tech Manufacturing department has various active projects, from Rapid Prototyping where we explore the potential of 3D printing and suitable materials, up to current challenges in automation. You therefore as a student have the unique opportunity of dealing with actual R&D project demands in practice, should you be looking for answers to problems encountered in the manufacturing chain. The "Holistic Manufacturing Intelligence3" project for the MONDI paper company is one example here. The High Tech Manufacturing department is working on this project together with the TIETO IT company. The objective of the project is to simulate paper factory processes, in order to remain "one step ahead" of actual events. It would thus be possible to predict and remedy imminent production errors or even stoppages before they occur. All the control systems of the factory will be optimized and interlinked. Researchers at the FH are using complex simulation models to test this.

Lecture contents

The requirement for maximum customizability of products while simultaneously reducing production costs by using robots and new digital systems form the basis of modern production processes. Small batch sizes and shorter product cycles require a model-based virtual verification, ie a review of real properties through computer simulations. The simulation of general technical systems, be it FEM or CFD analyzes of components or simulations of concrete work processes and handling operations (for example robotics), forms the bridge between the conception and the use of a technical development (verification).
