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.
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.
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.
Building on your professional experience gained in technical production facilities, the Master's degree program will intensify and expand your competencies in manufacturing technology, production logistics and control and in the core areas of quality management.

Other than the 1980s understanding of isolated management systems we will consider integrated management systems, or to be more precise multilateral relations and dependencies of single systems in corporations and their environment.Models of integrated management systems create the connectivity between management system models (eg. St. Galler Management Model, EFQM), which were discussed at the course Produktionsqualitätssicherungssysteme.The creation of integrative management systems and the aspect of corporate strategy will be covered as an additional integrating frame.We will focus on four integrated issues which can only be managed by combining several individual aspects for optimizing business:- Pricing and pricing psychology- Branding, brand strategy and neuro-economy/-marketing- Business cycles, saisonal effects and speed- Productivity, evaluation of integrative management systems and business optimization

To impart knowledge on approaches for the implementation of continual improvement through tools and methods as well as programes for enhancing processes.The first block deals with the main standards used in the producing industry. For ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 those sections usually causing problems at external audits or during the internal implementation are covered in greater details. Documents on requirements for safety on work (OHSAS 18001) and for risk management (ISO 31000) are outlined in order to introduce the benefit and the advantage of their application in the industrial field. The second block addresses the main quality methods and tools, for example Brainstorming, 635-Method, Mind-Mapping, Ishikawa Diagram, Value Stream Mapping, Pareto Analysis, FMEA and statistical methods to measure quality. They are used in practise to analyse, improve and optimise processes.The third block focuses on different programs (6-Sigma, Kaizen, KVP, Lean Management) which are implemented in successful companies and how they are handled in practise.Furthermore, based on the normative area, strategies in terms of Total Quality Management (TQM) will be presented, which embrace the whole company and go beyond the managament systems mentioned above. The implementation will be discussed by the means of the European Foundation for Quality Managament (EFQM) model and Quality in Process (QiP).

The degree program is designed to teach not only technical skills but also important economical, social and ecological relationships. With the High Tech Manufacturing Master's degree program, you will therefore open up many opportunities for setting your career on course. Highly qualified professionals, familiar with state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, are and will always be sought after for sustainable and dynamic growth. Subjects such as "Management systems for corporate management", "Business English for experts" or "Intercultural Communication in English" will open doors to markets abroad and offer you opportunities for an international managerial career.
The very broad education is considering technical and economical know-how as equally important and will qualify graduates for many areas in the life cycle of products. By an integrative approach to product lifecycle management, graduates are mastering not only manufacturing but also the associated support and product management processes. You will be working in project and process management, in quality management, in research and development or in supply chain management. You are active typically in the following sectors:
The head of the academic section will decide in exceptional cases.
To apply you will require the following documents:
It is not possible to save incomplete online applications. You must complete your application in one session. Your application will be valid as soon as you upload all of the required documents and certificates. In the event that some documents (e.g. references) are not available at the time you apply, you may submit these later via e-mail, mail or in person by no later than the start of the degree program.
Perhaps your qualifications exceed our admission, you are interested in the possibility of joining the program at a higher semester or you hold a degree from a university abroad?
For more information, please refer to the sections on validation and shortening programs.
The selection process examines the aptitude of the applicants for the Master's degree program. It consists of a written test and an interview. The secretary's office will notify you of the date of the selection process.
Experience shows that many questions arise during the application phase and the start of the degree program. We therefore propose that interested persons and applicants should network with higher semester students in the same degree program as yours. Personal and individual contact with your buddy will facilitate your entry into the degree program.
