Informatics (extension curriculum)

This extension curriculum consists of a predefined group of modules with the aim of teaching students the fundamentals of computer science as well as basic methods of software engineering. It serves as a basis for an advanced, interdisciplinary Master's degree program. This interdisciplinary study combines translational, transcultural, computer science, and linguistics disciplines.

In cooperation with the University of Vienna, it is planned to start the English-language Master's degree program Multilingual Technologies in the winter semester 2022/23. One focus is on methods for creating and using language technologies, for example technologies to support research, information and knowledge management, language data management, and translation and interpreting. Another focus is on language resources such as terminologies or computer dictionaries.

Admission to the Master's degree program Multilingual Technologies requires a Bachelor's degree in a suitable subject (e.g. Transcultural Communication of the University of Vienna or Computer Sciences and Digital Communications of the FH Campus Wien) as well as the following subject-specific knowledge:

  1. Basic knowledge of language technologies and technical communication
  2. Basics of computer science, basic methods and tools of software engineering

The specially developed extension curriculum Language Technologies and Technical Communication of the University of Vienna as well as the extension curriculum Computer Science* of the FH Campus Wien cover this subject-specific knowledge.
