    Before the studies

    With your existing technical knowledge, you have already laid the foundation for the Master degree program. You are now keen to expand on this by complementing your profile with subjects such as Business Studies, Marketing, Controlling and Accounting. You are aiming for a leadership role as the logical next and imminent step in your career. Yet, you still lack the management skills - which you are now about to acquire in the Master degree program. To you, innovation is not just a buzz word, but an opportunity to clearly enhance processes or products. You are keen to competently address regulatory questions around product liability, e-commerce, warranties or patent law in your career. If German is not your first language, you have to mandatorily to provide a German language certificate at least at level B2.

    During the studies

    By opting for the Technical Management Master degree program, you already hold the key to success in your hand. Because you will achieve success at home and abroad by combining specialized technical know-how, management methods and project, process and quality management. The two specializations in Information Technology and Environmental and Energy Technology deal with internationally topical issues. You may, for instance, offer some solutions to these issues in your Master thesis. Our University of Applied Sciences can offer the academic environment and infrastructure you need to contribute in this field. Our excellently equipped laboratories, such as the electronics and network laboratory and our special photovoltaic facility for teaching and testing, are at your disposal for your research. You will participate in R&D projects, together with innovative companies in commerce and industry. This will enhance your technical and scientific expertise. Practical relevance is also guaranteed through our Campus Lecture evenings which are open to all and offer contributions by prominent experts.

    Projects should, in the practical world, always endeavor to benefit society and the environment. This is also the guideline for project selection in the degree program. In the Information Technology specialization field in the Technical Management Master degree program, the development of a system allowing highly parametrizable traffic simulation is planned, for instance. This project will allow a network of roads to be arbitrarily modeled, permitting addition and interaction of various road users. The complete system will allow for the inclusion all types of roads, crossings, traffic lights, footpaths, bikeways and trolley cars. Using a graphical user interface, experiments and surveys will be carried out to analyze existing and new traffic situations such as normal traffic, congestion, accidents or roadworks, and to examine potential counter-strategies such as detours or changing traffic light timing.

    You will participate in the analysis of results and in finding answers to various traffic situations, to the benefit of road users.

    Our individual options for further education within the framework of the degree program are your added value towards your career planning or finding a job. We can offer you certifications which are important to industry, such as PMA Project Management Austria or the Process Management Certificate.

    Your degree program will focus on project, process and quality management. Business administration, law and personal development will round out your education. You will require these core skills to successfully manage projects. A strong technical emphasis will interlink your various competencies.

    • Your program will focus on technical know-how and project, process and quality management methods. This will include innovation, knowledge, R&D, technology, human resources, product and key account management. All of the above based on the special requirements of technical companies.
    • You will also advance your knowledge of business administration and address the fields of budgeting, accounting, controlling, and product cost calculation. Your marketing know-how will be the basis for the successful high-tech products you will in future develop, plan or sell.
    • You will examine legal issues which frequently arise in the course of your career, such as product liability, warranty, patent law, e-commerce law, and the fundamentals of labor and social laws.
    • The personality development courses will enhance your innate strengths, teaching you how to communicate optimally and manage correctly. Step by step, the degree program will guide you towards management of a technical company.

    Lecture contents

    The focus of this basic course is the presentation of the structure of our legal system. The different legal sources and their relationship to one another should be shown. An important aspect is legal protection, not least through the courts of public law. The basis of the modern constitutional state is and remains constitutional law, which today is heavily influenced by norms of European law and in some cases also overlaid. The legal norms of the European Union also increasingly influence the simple legal norms of the federal and state governments. The presentation of the legislative procedure and the main features of the administrative procedure are important for all further legal considerations. The fundamental rights, mainly those with economic relevance, are also shown using concrete examples. From the special administrative law, the trade regulations, procurement law, electricity industry law and telecommunications law are presented in outline.
