Bridge builders between technology and economy

The times when technology and business worked separately in a quiet little room are definitely over - companies are only successful if they combine their know-how on both the technical and the economic level and put it into practice effectively. The specialists who bring this about are technically at home in both worlds. They are trained on the "Industrial Engineering and Management" (WING) course of study.

Interdisciplinary engineering studies

As bridge builders, future industrial engineers have an interdisciplinary engineering degree ahead of them, which prepares them not only for work in commercial or industrial companies, but also for entrepreneurship - as founders of start-ups or independent entrepreneurs. In both areas, the course of study, which is unique in Carinthia, offers the best career prospects in a wide range of economic sectors. The prospects are so varied because generalists are trained in the course: Students deal with innovations, innovation marketing, technology management, technology marketing, industry 4.0 and industrial management, to name but a few topics.

The practice-oriented course contents are taught by a committed team that is characterized by professionalism and humanity in research and teaching. The team has specialist and methodological competence in the areas of innovation management, production engineering and smart production, project management, product development and product management. In addition, the Industrial Engineering and Management course can draw on a wide industrial network and local contacts: For the placement of internships, but also to attract experts from the field for teaching. The course of study relies on a high quality and personal mentoring relationship during the course of study.

In addition to economic and technical skills, "Industrial Engineering and Management" also focuses on social skills. Targeted promotion of personal development takes place as well as the teaching of methodological skills: students can put what they have learned into practice in a number of ways: In the innovation workshop, where they initiate and accompany innovative economic developments, or in the Smart Lab, which provides the spatial infrastructure and necessary machines to put their own ideas into practice and create the first prototypes - and perhaps even start their first own company.

Profile

Based on the major in economics and technology, the Engineering Management program provides students with a sound engineering education based on two main areas of specialisation: a technical specialisation in industrial engineering and an economic specialisation with a focus on innovation management and manufacturing economics. Students are trained to become "bridge builders" who work at the interface between business and technology in a wide range of industry sectors.

The course contents are conveyed in a practical and personal way, and the Industrial Engineering and Management course can also draw on a widely ramified network for this purpose. Students benefit from these contacts not only when choosing an internship, but also when it comes to projects and later on when it comes to job opportunities. In the Innovation Workshop and the Smart Lab they can develop and implement their own ideas and possibly even lay the foundation for a successful business start-up.

What students should bring to their studies:

  • A fundamental interest and a pleasure in economic and technical topics.
  • A creative personality who enjoys innovative developments.
  • Logical thinking skills combined with a good command of English.
  • Curiosity and the ability to work independently.
  • Good knowledge of English, mathematics and PC.

Concrete previous knowledge is not necessary for the Bachelor's degree in Engineering Management. Therefore, students from all types of schools can start this course of study after the Matura if they bring the appropriate interest and willingness to perform. In order to facilitate the start of studies, the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences offers intensive courses in mathematics, computer science and physics. Missing university entrance qualifications can be compensated by relevant professional qualifications and attendance of the pre-study course.

After successful completion of their studies, graduates have the following skills and knowledge:

  • They have basic knowledge in mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, business administration, economics and law.
  • They are able to analyse business problems holistically and solve them in a team, taking into account technical and economic aspects.
  • You understand the innovation process and are able to initiate and accompany innovation processes.
  • They apply the essential methods of statics and strength theory, kinematics and kinetics, construction and materials science as well as electrical engineering.
  • They participate in the implementation of control and regulation systems in mechanical plants.
  • They prepare holistic assessments of manufacturing processes under technical and economic parameters as well as technology roadmaps.
  • You will design basic concepts for production machines and production systems based on various requirement criteria.
  • They work out business models and business plans.
  • You will develop projects and create project orders.

Job & Career

Industrial Engineers work as generalists and, depending on their personal interests and abilities, in many different industry sectors and fields of work.

Examples of professional fields are in industrial and commercial enterprises (production management, logistics, project management, innovation management, technology marketing and sales, purchasing, controlling), in the service sector (engineering offices, consulting, civil engineering, expert activities) and in the public sector (research and teaching at universities, teaching at technical colleges, public administration).

The successful completion of the Bachelor's degree entitles the holder to a Master's degree in the field of Engineering & IT at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences in the scope of 4 semesters as well as a Master's degree in the field of Engineering & IT at another FH or university according to FHStG § 6 (4).

Campus & Arrival

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.
