From Stethoscope to Smartwatch

It has been a long way from the first stethoscope to the modern heart rate monitors in Smartwatches - but it shows impressively what enormous progress has been made in the development of medical devices. Demographic change and the ever-increasing demands on medicine make the use of medical devices and analytical methods and their further development absolutely essential.

Applications and Solutions

Medical information technology is a rapidly growing market and is not left out by any major medical technology or IT company. The trend is towards offering total solutions - "Applications and Solutions" - and integrating modern diagnostic and therapeutic equipment into the healthcare provider's information system. Graduates of the "Medical Technology" branch of study find a broad and very innovative field of activity in the economy. Specialists in modern medical technology must therefore have proven specialist knowledge as a link between technology and medicine, as well as a high level of social competence.

Students benefit from high quality teaching and practical training. Building on the fundamentals of computer science, mathematics, physics in anatomy and physiology, the technical aspect is the focus of the course: Information technologies and mobile applications are covered as well as system design and integration and signal processing.

The work in the laboratories (medical technology and augmented reality) also gives a first taste of what to expect in the professional internship in the sixth semester. The integration of this "practical semester" at home or abroad will enable the direct implementation and deepening of the already acquired knowledge in practice. The knowledge can thus be further developed "on the job" in order to optimally prepare the students for their entry into professional life.

Career opportunities await students in companies ranging from the electronics industry, equipment manufacturers or software developers to hospitals and in hospital management, rehabilitation and sports centres or in the care and home sector. Specialist knowledge is particularly in demand there, which is dealt with in the degree course: Topics such as Augmented Reality, Assisted Living (AAL), Computer Graphic, Data Science, Internet of Things (IOT) and Smart Sensors accompany students during their education.

Profile

Students receive comprehensive knowledge in technical and medical fields. In addition, they specialize in elective modules on the subjects of Data Science, Mobile Systems Development or Internet of Things. Medical technology can also be studied on a part-time basis and relies on personal support and an "open door policy". Supportive courses are also offered before and during the course of study to ensure optimal success.

What students should bring to their studies:

  • A fundamental interest and enjoyment in scientific and technical subjects.
  • A creative personality who enjoys innovative developments.
  • Logical thinking skills combined with a good command of English.
  • Curiosity and the ability to work independently.

Concrete previous knowledge is not necessary for the bachelor's degree in medical technology. Therefore, students from all types of schools can start this study program 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.

The focus of the course is on the technological development of treatment processes and diagnostic methods. On the one hand, you will acquire relevant basic knowledge in computer science and mathematics, on the other hand, you will successively focus on medical technology topics
such as anatomy, physiology and imaging techniques. The contents of the course cover the entire medical technology processing chain from image and signal generation, acquisition and processing to the visualization of these data (e.g. ultrasound, CT,
thermography). Starting in the third semester, the topics Data Science, Mobile Systems Development or Internet of Things are available in an elective module. In addition to the work placement, the focus will be on Business English and project management.

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.

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.
