7 good reasons

for an "Engineering & IT" study at the CUAS:


The laboratories in the "Engineering & IT" field of study at Carinthia University of Applied Sciences at Campus Villach and Campus Klagenfurt-Primoschgasse are closely linked to the students' practical training and to Ph.D. research projects. Thus, students are able to solve problems that arise through realistic projects within the framework of a modern, well-equipped laboratory infrastructure. The labs are divided into three departments; these include, for example, the sound studio, the EMC lab, the smart lab CARINTHIA, the innovation workshop, the battery lab, the industrial robotics lab and many more.

In addition to learning the theoretical basics, students are also given the tools to implement the contents in practical projects in cooperation with private companies, public institutions, NGOs or research projects. Every Bachelor's program (full-time) therefore includes a compulsory practical semester. Most of the Master's programs can be studied alongside a job.

Students can take advantage of Carinthia University of Applied Sciences’ cooperation with countless companies to gain practical insights and learn about current tasks.

In addition, the companies also benefit from the students, who are able to get to know them at an early stage, for example at the "Meet & Match" job fair.

The "Meet & Match" is organized by the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences and takes place every year in May.

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.

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.
