What you can offer

Would you like to help shape innovations in the software field and apply the current methods and technologies for modern software development in your profession? With this master degree program, you will deepen your existing IT knowledge and benefit from the experience of numerous recognized experts from the business and research fields.
As a technical basis, you already have advanced programming skills and a technical bachelor's degree. You are curious and goal-oriented, you want to complete your skills and expertise in software engineering and have the option to also pursue a scientific career.

What we offer you

Just as important as the "what" is the "how". Therefore, we are constantly developing our program contents and didactic methods for teaching. We presented our innovative didactic concepts at several international conferences, most recently by invitation at Columbia University in New York City. In addition to teaching, practical experience is very important to us. We maintain partnerships with renowned IT companies that also attend our annual Technology Career Fair. Take the opportunity to make important contacts for your future career and to get in touch with potential employers.  We also offer you the chance to extend your contacts abroad through exchange programs. You benefit from our large network of international universities. If you want to realize your ideas in exciting projects, we will support you. With us, you also have the opportunity to actively participate in R & D projects. In addition to consultation, information and an excellent network, access to the innovative Start-up Corner  is also made possible for selected parties interested in founding a start-up company.

What makes this degree program special

  • Ongoing software projects with our company partners or in the context of our research projects, which can also serve as a basis for your master’s thesis.
  • Individualization through elective courses in the 3rd semester, which can also be completed at our partner universities as part of a semester abroad.
  • Attendance on an average of 3 evenings per week, supported by distance learning.
  • All lecturers have been in relevant management positions for several years and/or have many years of research experience with a doctorate or postdoctoral qualification.

We place great importance on integrating our program and field of work with other disciplines at FH Campus Wien, just as it is in practice. Our individual continuing education opportunities offered during your studies will also greatly benefit your future career. You can gain important certifications for the industry, such as Oracle Java, Oracle SQL, ISTQB (Software Testing), ISAQB (Software Architectures), IREB (Requirements Engineering) and PMA Project Management Austria Level D.


What you will learn in the degree program

In Austrian and international companies, there is an increasing demand for qualified personnel in every area of software engineering. The focus of the degree program is on technical content and is rounded out with management content, which enables you to take on responsibilities in technical project management and software quality assurance. The architecture and the production of software are combined in concrete projects. In addition, the combination of both aspects with the practical and scientific modules contributes to the interdisciplinary nature of the entire degree program. In this master degree program, the architecture and implementation of software solutions are clearly in the foreground. A central focus is the support and consultation of users with the added value of providing a translating interface between users and professional experts.
