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.

In everyday life you combine the enjoyment of food with health consciousness. You have good knowledge of the natural sciences and food preparation. You possess strong people and communication skills.
FH Campus Wien is now the largest university of applied sciences for health in Austria. After the legal framework was created in 2006 to introduce the MTD academies and the midwife academy into the higher education sector, FH Campus Wien launched the first bachelor's degree programs in 2007. Shortly afterwards the first master's degree programs where launched in the Department of Health. Today, FH Campus Vienna now has extensive expertise and a large network at its disposal. An important partner in the areas of education, research and development is the Vienna Hospital Association (KAV). We also work closely with the professional association. At our attractive main campus you will benefit from our modern infrastructure, which also includes fully equipped function rooms such as a teaching kitchen. You will also have the opportunity to join an interdisciplinary, professional community. There is also great potential in research projects at the intersection of health and technology. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.
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.

Not least because of some recent food scandals (BSE, Dioxin, “Gammelfleisch”), food law has become one of the most intensely harmonized legal areas. The course will first cover the general legal foundations of food law both on European (e.g. Regulation, 178/2002/EC) and on Austrian level (LMSVG). In this context, the most fundamental terms (e.g. foodstuff), the duties of the foodstuff entrepreneurs, the inspection rights and possible sanctions and remedies of the foodstuff authorities will be addressed. A further focus will be put on the controversially discussed area of labelling law, where attention will given to both general (with special regard to the EG-Regulation on food information to consumers, adopted by EP in July 2011) and more specific labelling provisions. In the area of special food law, particular provisions for specific foodstuffs, especially the GMO, will be examined. The hygiene provisions, the Austrian Codex as well as the global Codex will complete the course.

In addition to being awarded the academic title of "Bachelor of Science in Health Studies", after completing the degree program you will also receive a legally recognized professional qualification. Besides doctors, dieticians are the only occupational group active in the field of nutrition that is allowed to work with sick people. Only with this degree program is it possible to practice the profession of dietician. The MTD Act is the basis for this degree program. The practically oriented degree program means that you will be ready to work immediately. In addition to therapy, the profession is moving more and more towards prevention and health promotion. In every area where you work you apply your know-how of counseling concepts and techniques as a tool to actually reach people. You work with people of all ages, for example in kindergartens, companies, hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, your own dietician practice or at home. As a dietician you will work in interdisciplinary teams or in one-on-one counseling. You will work in this profession either as a staff member or self-employed and will plan and implement nutrition therapies and evaluate their results. In food service management for hospitals and other facilities you will calculate various types of diets, train staff or supervise the preparation of the food. At hospitals, and especially in research, you will be engaged in interdisciplinary work. In addition, you can also apply your knowledge in the industry or in the media. Other areas include prevention and health promotion, for example in schools, businesses, restaurants and hotels as well as in communities.
Nutrition counseling begins with children and plays an important role even into old age. Prevention and therapy will be the core tasks of your future professional life. As a dietician, you can work either as a staff member or self-employed. The following occupations will be open to you:
Master course for advanced professional training, part-time
