    Vor dem Studium

    Sie möchten in einem Bereich tätig sein, der sich mit zentralen Zukunftsfragen wie der Vermeidung von Lebensmittelabfall oder der Schonung unserer Ressourcen beschäftigt. Sie besitzen einen technisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Hintergrund und interessieren sich für die interdisziplinäre Materie der Verpackungstechnologie. Sie möchten Ihre Kenntnisse für Herstellungs- und Verarbeitungsverfahren von Verpackungsmaterialien vertiefen. Darüber hinaus zeigen Sie starkes Interesse an der Optimierung von Produktionsprozessen in Hinblick auf ökologische, ökonomische und soziale Aspekte. Sie sind in der Lage, vernetzt zu denken und gehen gut strukturiert und organisiert an Fragestellungen heran. Sie streben eine Führungsposition in Unternehmen der einschlägigen Branchen an.
    Berufserfahrung und Berufstätigkeit sind vorteilhaft, aber keine Voraussetzung für das Studium.

    Das spricht für Ihr Studium bei uns

    Studienplatz = Laborplatz

    Teilen ist gut, aber bitte nicht den Laborplatz. Wir garantieren Ihnen Ihren eigenen.

    Gefragtes Wissen

    Was Sie hier lernen ist ausschlaggebend, um globale Probleme lösen zu können.

    International vernetzt

    Für ein Praktikum oder einen Job ins Ausland: mit Ihrem Studium bei uns der nächste logische Schritt.

    Im Studium

    Das Masterstudium wurde gemeinsam mit namhaften Unternehmen der Verpackungsbranche und mit Fachverbänden der Wirtschaftskammer entwickelt.

    In Lehre und Forschung arbeiten wir u.a. mit der Hochschule München, der Technischen Universität Wien, dem Österreichischen Forschungsinstitut für Chemie und Technik sowie zahlreichen namhaften Unternehmen der Verpackungsindustrie zusammen. Aus diesem Netzwerk, das stetig erweitert wird, gewinnen wir hervorragende Lektor*innen, entwickeln F&E-Projekte und können industrielle Anlagen im Rahmen von Exkursionen vorstellen. Das gibt Ihnen schon während des Studiums die Chance, wertvolle Kontakte für Ihre berufliche Zukunft zu knüpfen. Der Studiengang ist in einem neuen Gebäude in der Favoritenstraße angesiedelt – es stehen moderne Hörsäle und hochwertig ausgestattete Laborflächen für Sie bereit.

    Berufsbegleitend: Das Studium ist berufsbegleitend organisiert und weist einen hohen Anteil an E-Learning auf. So kann es sowohl mit Wohnort in Österreich als auch außerhalb von Österreich absolviert werden. „Berufsbegleitend“ bedeutet jedoch nicht, dass Sie während des Studiums berufstätig sein müssen.

    Die Hochschule, die mehr kann: Sie profitieren von der FH Campus Wien als multidisziplinäre Hochschule. Beispielsweise forschen die Studiengänge der Molekularen Biotechnologie auf dem Gebiet zellbasierter Testsysteme. Hier knüpft der Studiengang Verpackungstechnologie an, um Verpackungen auf Hormonaktivität und Genotoxizität zu testen. Im Rahmen der offenen Lehrveranstaltungen haben Sie die Möglichkeit, Lehrveranstaltungen zu Department-übergreifenden Themen zu besuchen. Aktuelle und vielfältige Themen greifen auch die Campus Lectures auf – zu diesen frei zugänglichen Vortragsabenden mit hochkarätigen Expert*innen aus der Praxis lädt die FH Campus Wien regelmäßig ein.

    Dieses Masterstudium bereitet Sie optimal auf eine Tätigkeit in der Entwicklung und Produktion von Verpackungen, in der Industrie, im verpackungsaffinen Ein- und Verkauf, im Consultingbereich oder im Handel vor. Sie lernen, Wirtschaftlichkeitsanalysen und Optimierungen im Unternehmen durchzuführen sowie Lebenszyklusanalysen selbständig zu planen und durchzuführen. Aufgrund dieser maßgeschneiderten Ausbildung, in der Sie sich auch die englische Fachsprache aneignen, sind Sie in der Lage, in der internationalen Verpackungsbranche eine leitende Rolle zu übernehmen.

    Das Studium ist in vier Schwerpunkte gegliedert: Packaging Technology, Sustainability, Management sowie Science and Research. Sie lernen die neuesten Technologien zur packstoffübergreifenden Verpackungsproduktion und -prüfung sowie im Abfüll- und Abpackprozess kennen. Das Thema Nachhaltigkeit hat große Bedeutung für die Verpackungstechnologie und begleitet Sie konsequent durch das Studium. Präsentationstechnik, Moderations- und Konflikttechnik, Leadership sowie wissenschaftliches Arbeiten und Forschungsmanagement runden Ihre Ausbildung ab und bereiten Sie auf eine Führungsposition vor. Im Rahmen Ihrer Masterarbeit bearbeiten Sie auf wissenschaftlicher Basis ein im Berufsfeld relevantes Thema.

    Prüfungsmodus

    Immanente Leistungsüberprüfung
    The integrated course is assessed through formative assessment. By
    awarding points during the integrated course (ongoing performance
    evaluation + 80% mandatory attendance) and not just at the end
    through a final examination, several advantages arise:
    - The workload is distributed evenly throughout the semester.
    - The assessment does not represent a snapshot.
    - Teaching methods can be modified and adjusted as needed.
    - Students take active responsibility for the learning process and receive
    individual courses for action.
    In detail, the course is assessed through the following partial
    performance evaluations:
    1. active participation in class (= 15 points)
    2. literature test (= 10 points)
    3. individual work and presentation in class (= 30 points)
    4. group start-up concept and presentation in class (= 30 points)
    5. written final examination (= 15 points | min. 2 groups)
    The overall assessment of all partial performances will be
    communicated by the lecturer in Moodle. The maximum achievable score
    for the overall assessment of all partial performances is 100 points.
    The overall assessment will be carried out according to the following
    grading scale and will be communicated by the course instructor in the
    students portal.
    > 0 to 59 points => insufficient (5)
    > from 60 points => sufficient (4)
    > from 70 points => satisfactory (3)
    > from 80 points => good (2)
    > from 90 points => excellent (1)

    Lehr- und Lernmethode

    Didactic setting – in class (face-to-face) and online teaching:
    3 SWS / 6 ECTS (= 150 TU workload students) =
    23 TU in class teaching (face-to-face)
    1 TU exam (examination supervision by the lecturer)
    126 TU distance learning (=workload students)

    Presentational methods:
    Topics of innovation, entrepreneurship & strategy will be elaborated based on a PowerPoint presentation prepared specifically for the purposes of the course, whereby basic prior knowledge (as economic topics are taught as part of the Bachelor's degree programme) is expected, and the willingness to engage in economic and innovative thinking is a key requirement.

    Participatory methods:
    The students independently prepare sub-areas of the innovation processes and methods of entrepreneurial leadership and present their knowledge in class and answer questions from the participants as experts. In addition, students are required to develop an entrepreneurial venture step by step in group work and work out concrete concepts for founding a start-up.

Individual work: Students work on a topic of their choice. This serves both for deepening knowledge in a specific area and for learning how to write a scholarly paper. Creating a power point presentation: Students present the results of their work with the help of a power point presentation.

    Participatory methods:
    Group work: In addition to elaborating on a specific topic and applying learned concepts, students acquire interdisciplinary skills such as social skills, media didactics competence and language proficiency when working in groups.
