Dietetics

Dieticians are responsible for the nutritional management of healthy and sick persons, as well as in institutions and companies. As a legally recognized health professional and the only occupational group active in the field of nutrition, dieticians are the only experts besides doctors who may plan, implement and evaluate nutrition therapies. Counseling expertise and knowledge of the course of diseases therefore play a major role in the degree program in Dietetics. The practically oriented education provides you with the knowledge of medicine, nutrition, health communication and project management in health promotion necessary for a diversified professional future.

    During the studies

    The FH Campus Wien is characterised by extensive expertise and a large network. FH Campus Wien is the only university of applied sciences in Austria to train all seven legally regulated upper-level medical-therapeutic-diagnostic professions as well as midwifery. An important partner in the areas of education, research and development is the Vienna Healthcare Association. At our attractive main location, you also benefit from our modern infrastructure, which includes test kitchens. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to join a professional community across disciplines. There is great potential in research projects at the interface between health and technology and practical relevance is guaranteed when we organise one of our freely accessible lecture evenings with top-class experts as part of the Campus Lectures.

    The practically oriented degree program combines medicine, natural, social and human sciences. Communication, counseling expertise and knowledge of the development and course of diseases play a major role. Internships that can be completed abroad make up approximately 25% of the bachelor's degree program. Workshops and projects provide varied teaching and learning processes. In practice the profession is more and more concerned with advising people on nutrition and providing training, for example in order to prevent diet-related lifestyle diseases such as obesity and diabetes. Health promotion begins in kindergartens and schools, and this is also where the degree program in Dietetics is also active. As part of the course "Project Management", a prevention project is designed and implemented in practice. This is done in cooperation with a school in the 10th district, where dietetics students introduce school children to the importance of eating a healthy diet. The students and school children cook together in the teaching kitchen at FH Campus Wien to show everyone that healthy food can be very tasty.

    With the event "Pimp your food", dietetics students at the main campus of FH Campus Wien recently encouraged visitors to include more fruits and vegetables in their daily diet and thus implemented project ideas and concepts from courses in practice. Their ideas included delicious smoothies in the entrance hall, practical tips in the form of recipes via Facebook, a photo contest and much more. Another successful class project is the "Dietetics-WiKi", which was designed and implemented as part of an e-learning best practice project and is an integral part of the teaching. This media WiKi tool supports competence-oriented, student-centered, interdisciplinary and networked learning and teaching.

    You acquire a broad theoretical education and complete internships relevant to the dietician profession.

    • The program focuses on the core areas of medicine, nutrition and communication. Using your skills and knowledge in these areas you will practice and learn to give nutritional advice and therapy to healthy and sick people.
    • Small classes, modern teaching methods, workshops, projects and e-learning provide varied teaching and learning processes.
    • Internships that can be completed abroad make up approximately 25% of the bachelor's degree program. In the wide variety of available internships you can expect intensive professional support on site.
