About the study

Four study courses with different focuses are embedded in the program: Geoinformation and Environment,Medical Technology, Network and Communication Technology and Multimediatechnology. In addition to a stronger, well-founded basic IT knowledge, the focus on the branches of study will gradually increase in the course of the course.

You can study "Information Technologies" full-time or part-time. For the basic IT subjects, you have the choice of attending these either in Villach or in Klagenfurt - the special subjects for the branches of study "Geoinformation and Environment**" and "Multimedia Technology" take place at the Villach campus, those for the branches of study "Medical Engineering" and "Network & Communication Engineering" at the Klagenfurt campus. Starting in the 3rd semester, students choose one of the elective modules "Internet of Things" (Klagenfurt Campus), "Mobile Systems Development" (Klagenfurt Campus) and "Data Science" (Villach Campus) for the following 3 semesters (3rd, 4th, 5th). The courses of the elective modules are held jointly for full-time and part-time students.

ADVANTAGES

  • Courses on both campuses
  • Full-time and part-time
  • Wide-ranging training
  • Current topics in the elective module
  • Use of comprehensive lecture hall and laboratory infrastructure

Elective modules

Due to the almost everywhere available Internet, the desire and the requirement to integrate sensors and sensor systems for the acquisition of measured values into the Internet community is growing. Measured values are no longer classically generated and displayed locally, but stored on servers in the Internet as a data package. One now speaks of machine-to-machine communication, M2M. The data packets are then collected and processed. This process takes place in industry, health care, households - in fact in every sector. The requirements for infrastructure and data security are necessarily increasing.

In the elective module "IoT" these mentioned focal points are analysed and worked out together with students, so that they are able to design, build and verify such contemporary requirements.

Whether mobile communication in everyday life and at work, intelligent use of transport or the control of our homes - we are networked and on the move at the same time. Mobility can increase personal freedom, enhance quality of life and also open up career prospects. In the Mobile Systems Development major, students learn about the latest developments in the field of mobile technologies. In addition to mobile applications (apps), topics such as middleware, architecture and management of mobile systems, digital signal processing, processing of sensor and localization data (GPS, Galileo) and interface design are covered.

Data science is generally understood as the extraction of knowledge from data. Nowadays we have enormous amounts of data at our disposal from which information must be generated and recommendations for action derived. In addition to expert knowledge about suitable analysis tools, coordination and communication skills are important factors for successful work with large amounts of data. In the elective module, students learn basic concepts and application areas from the fields of artificial intelligence, statistics in modern data analysis, and data visualization, and can make well-founded assessments of data quality.

Campus & Arrival

Campus Primoschgasse

Klagenfurt combines joie de vivre, nature and culture. The city of just over 100,000 inhabitants on Lake Wörthersee is a recreational area that fulfils every wish. Slovenia and Italy are not far away, the mountains are within reach. Klagenfurt's cultural scene is also vibrant, with clubs, stages and museums. The Old Square with its many shops, restaurants and cafés is the centre of city life. The idyllic Lendkanal connects the city with the lake and, like Kreuzbergl, is a popular destination for amateur sportsmen and nature lovers. 
The campus in Primoschgasse has perfect transport connections - a separate bus line stops directly in front of the FH on the Südring. The view from the roof terrace onto the mountain panorama surrounding Klagenfurt offers the perfect space for relaxing breaks.

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.
