guiding principle

Since its foundation in 1995, CUAS has made history. Back then we started with 2 programs and about 70 students; currently we offer 30 study programs that educate almost 2000 full- and part-time students. About the same number of CUAS graduates is impressive proof of the necessity and importance of this academic institution. Through ever growing acceptance of the programs as well as the high demand for our graduates in industry, the programs will be further developed in the coming years.

CUAS has developed into a unique educational institution in Carinthia. Through constant further development of the degree programs at CUAS and intensive cooperation with the worlds of business and science, those studying at the university can be certain of a progressive education with its finger on the pulse of time. CUAS lives the vision of direct practical experience. Full- and part-time lecturers, as well as guest speakers from industry and business ensure an interdisciplinary, internationally oriented education. Degree programs are offered in the fields of civil engineering and architecture, engineering, as well as management, healthcare and social issues.

The quality of our education is emphasized through the development of innovative teaching and learning methods, such as, blended learning, which offers students and professors greater flexibility in the creation of a suitable learning environment.Furthermore, the CUAS library offers educational support through state of the art facilities. On all sites CUAS libraries administrate 33,000 media.

The Carinthia University of Applied Sciences is a dynamic and dialogue-oriented university of applied sciences with regional roots and international orientation. It is active in the focal areas of health and social affairs, technology and economics. Its core tasks lie in the areas of study and teaching, applied research, knowledge transfer and further education.

We live a collegial and respectful coexistence. Our university culture is family-friendly and characterized by trust and appreciation.

We are prepared to ensure and develop the quality of our educational offerings through competence, commitment and the willingness to support necessary change.

We cultivate an open, cross-departmental exchange and promote interdisciplinary cooperation. 

We strive for a cooperative partnership between students and university staff.

Students and university staff actively shape their university and thus shape the university culture.

We attach great importance to clear structures and effective teaching methods that offer room for the development of individuality and diversity.

Our courses of study, further education and services as well as our research topics are oriented towards the requirements of the economy and society.

We methodically develop our knowledge in order to contribute to mastering current and future challenges of society.

"We want to position ourselves as a university in teaching and applied research in our core areas of technology, economy, health and social affairs in the top group of Austrian universities!“

 

In February 2015 Carinthia University of Applied Sciences together with companies from the region of Carinthia has signed the Diversity Charta.

The Diversity Charter is a public, voluntary commitment by Austrian companies, institutions and organisations that enables them to declare their appreciation of the diversity of people, regardless of their gender, age, background and skin colour, sexual orientation, religion and world view, or of their physical and mental capacities.

University Management

Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS) was established in 1995 in the legal form of a society as the organisational body for university studies in Carinthia. The registered office of the society was in Spittal an der Drau. Since the beginning of 2002, Carinthia University of Applied Sciences gemeinnuetzige Privatstiftung (non-profit private foundation) has been the organisational and funding body for Carinthia university degree programs.
    
The financing of the non-profit private foundation takes place by means of contributions from the federal government, the province of Carinthia and the local municipalities. Also, the membership fees of the society, which has become one of the 15 founders, as well as donations and proceeds from events contribute to financing the operation of the organisation.

Responsibilities of the Board of Governors

In consultation with both of the other members of the Board of Governors, the Executive Director of the Board of Governors conducts the business of Carinthia University of Applied Sciences gemeinnuetzige Privatstiftung (non-profit private foundation). The three members of the Board of Governors form the Foundation Board of Governors, which manages the private foundation, represents it in external dealings and ensures the fulfilment of the purpose of the foundation, namely the organisation and operation of university degree programmes within the meaning of the FHStG (Fachhochschule Studies Act).    

The Executive Director of the Board of Governors is responsible for the commercial and organisational management of Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS) and in this function, is the overall supervisor of all employees. Furthermore, the Executive Director of the Board of Governors, in consultation with the other members of the Board of Governors, must ensure the development and implementation of the strategic goals and the positioning of Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.

THE CARINTHIAN UNIVERSITY CONFERENCE & THE PROVINCE OF CARINTHIA

Shaping the future together

On 10 October 2012, the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt, the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences and the Carinthian University of Education - Viktor Frankl University joined forces to form the Carinthian University Conference in order to bundle the joint forces even better, to use synergies and to "rethink Carinthia".

Carinthia's universities are key centres of education policy, which make a decisive contribution to mastering the coming social and economic challenges. They thus make a significant contribution to the development and prosperity of the state. The common Carinthian higher education area leads to a sharpened profile and the expansion of the location advantage, to a consolidation of the common research profile and to a higher ability to cooperate with each other and with the economy.

Competition and transparency in the international education market are constantly increasing. A joint positioning of Carinthia's universities is therefore of central importance for the future of the entire education location and for the competitiveness of the province of Carinthia.

Students' expectations of their universities are changing: processes of adaptation and specialisation must be carried out ever more quickly in order to be able to operate successfully and competitively both nationally and internationally. Together, the challenges in internationalisation programmes, infrastructure issues and university didactics can be met more efficiently and better.

Particularly in a country with few resources such as Carinthia, education is a key success factor and a solid foundation for the future: It determines the development opportunities, quality of life and prosperity of the next generations, and the ability to actively and creatively master the "grand challenges" facing our society.

  • Elaboration of strategies for the development of the Carinthian higher education area in close cooperation with the State of Carinthia;
  • Sharpening and strengthening a common profile to guide student flows from Austria and abroad;
  • Development of common positions on social, economic and higher education strategy issues;
  • Coordinated cooperation with politics, business and society to develop a joint strategy "Rethinking Carinthia".
  • Interdisciplinary and inter-institutional cooperation in research and development on the "Grand Challenges" defined by the EU;
  • Securing federal investment in personnel and infrastructure in the region through concerted cooperation between the state, cities and universities.
Common concepts for a tertiary education strategy

Carinthia's universities fulfil a central social mission, are the qualification engines of the economy and a driving force for innovation. They develop potentials from basic skills to key qualifications and make a decisive contribution to securing the economic location by training and employing qualified workers. Carinthia's universities make the coming generation fit for the future and guarantee the decisive view beyond the horizon in a humane, socially coherent, emotionally strengthened, enlightened, adaptive, innovation and performance-oriented society.

The conditions for Carinthia as a location for education, science and research are challenging but promising. The province of Carinthia plays a decisive role in its sustainable safeguarding and future-oriented further development: it sets the political course in order to work out viable future concepts together with the Carinthian University Conference and to position itself as a competitive research and education location at the federal level as well. Therefore, the cooperation between the Carinthian University Conference and the State of Carinthia will be further intensified in the future: The more coordinated and consciously all the players involved pull together and commit themselves to a productive joint development strategy, the better it will be possible to attract federal funding for further priority areas and infrastructure measures. Together we are stronger - mentally, physically and as a university location.

Work Council

Work Council

It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do. (Molière)

The work council represents the interface between the staff and faculty (employees) and the management (employer). Its task is twofold: 1) to be active as mediating entity as well as 2) to function as a central contact point.  The current work council team harmonizes well with one another, complements each other well and is committed to positively act upon the concerns of all fellow colleagues.

An elected work council can – supported by the solidarity of the staff and faculty – forcefully and consequently address and represent the concerns of its colleagues. In addition to its core function of representing the work force vis-à-vis the management of the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences, the work council looks for opportunities as well as funding for business, social, health and cultural interests of the staff and faculty.

Spittal an der Drau stands out

The comedy town of Spittal in the Carinthian Oberland with its 16,000 inhabitants knows perfectly well how to combine living tradition with a culturally conscious present.

Villach

The Villach region combines tradition, cosmopolitanism and quality of life with the advantages of an innovative business location. Villach, a small town with about 60,000 inhabitants, is an international high-tech location with groundbreaking cooperation between science and industry and is also increasingly developing into a start-up town.

Situated directly at the intersection of three cultures, Villach, situated on the Drava river, is an important traffic junction in the Alps-Adriatic region. This special geographical location and the beautiful landscape around Villach and in the federal state of Carinthia have made the region a popular holiday destination for generations, further beyond the borders. The drinking water quality of the lakes and the particularly clean air make Villach and its surroundings an environmental paradise.

In addition to its geographical advantages, Austria also leads the world in terms of its social and health care system and is considered a particularly safe, prosperous and liveable country.

Despite the above-average prosperity and the comprehensive state social benefits, Villach compares favourably with many international destinations. The "small town bonus" comes into its own here and makes everyday life affordable.
