Information Technology

Starting in the third semester, students choose subjects from the elective module “Digitization” and these very topical subjects range from the Internet of Things, Mobile Systems Development as well as Data Science.

The degree program has four study programs, each with a different specialization: geoinformation and environment, medical engineering and information technology, network and communication technology as well as the completely new study program multimedia technology.  Based upon a strong, foundation of IT fundamentals, the focus of the studies gradually shifts to the respective study programs.

Full-time and part-time courses at both campuses

Students of the degree program can attend either as a full-time or a part-time student and can attend the IT-fundamental courses at either the campus in Klagenfurt or Villach. Students simply need to decide which campus is more convenient to them before the first semester.

The Internet nowadays is ubiquitous and as such the desire as well as the requirement to integrate sensors and sensor systems for the acquisition of measured values into the internet community.  Measured values are no longer just generated and displayed locally, but they are stored on servers in the Internet as data packets.  Nowadays, one speaks of machine-to-machine communication, M2M. Subsequently, these data packets are retrieved and processed.  These processes can be found in the healthcare, in industry, in homes – actually in all sectors.  Thus, as a result, the requirements for infrastructure and data security are correspondingly increasing.

In the elective module “IoT” the above-mentioned emphases are analyzed and together with students developed so the students are able to design, build and verify the requirements that are currently arising.

Whether it is mobile communication at home or at work, intelligent uses of transportation or controlling various settings in our apartments and homes – we are connected and at the same time on the move. Mobility can increase personal freedom, improve one’s quality of life as well as open new career perspectives. In the Mobile Systems Development specialization, students learn and become familiar with the latest developments in the field of mobile technologies. In addition to mobile applications (apps), topics such as middleware, architectures and management of mobile systems, digital signal processing, processing of sensor and localization data (GPS, Galileo) and interface design will be covered.

Data science is generally understood to be the extraction of knowledge from data.  Currently, enormous amounts of data exist and from these data, information can be generated and recommendations for action can be derived.  In addition to expertise on suitable analysis tools, coordination and communication skills are important factors for successful work with large amounts of data.  In this elective module, students learn fundamental concepts and fields of application in the areas of artificial intelligence, statistics in modern data analysis and data visualization. Moreover, students learn how to make sound assessments in regards to the quality of the data in question.
