7 good reasons

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


The smart lab Carinthia is a laboratory in which own ideas can be realized and prototypes can be produced with professional support. The equipment includes production machines such as 3D printers and scanners, laser cutters, cutting plotters, CNC milling machines, an electronics workstation and suitable design software.

The study range engineering & IT presents immediately all laboratories of the study range engineering & IT in a comprehensive laboratory folder: on 60 sides are now summarized the respective equipment, the knowledge acquisition as well as the taking place courses of the laboratories in Villach and Klagenfurt. Statements from students, graduates* and teachers round off the package. The "smart lab CARINTHIA" in Lakeside Klagenfurt is the youngest lab in the "Engineering & IT" study area.

Have a look at our brochure.

Our students are not only taught the theoretical basics, but also implement what they have learned independently in "real" projects with external training partners. They implement their individual practical projects in cooperation with private companies, public institutions, NGOs or from research projects of the course.

Students use these cooperations to gain practical insights and learn from current tasks. In addition, many companies benefit from contact with students because they get to know potential employees at an early stage.

In cooperation with Infineon Technologies Austria AG, we offer first-year students of the Systems Engineering course the opportunity to combine studying and working while working. Further partners are PMS, M-Tech and NTS. > Study & Work - learn more


Especially in the start-up phase, the Gründergarage provides young entrepreneurs with a top infrastructure. Equipped with Internet and software access including support, proximity and use of the laboratory facilities on the Villach campus as well as personal and professional support from the University of Applied Sciences.


As an additional competence for the start of studies, the consolidation of knowledge in the MINT (Mathematics, Informatics, Natural Sciences and Technology) areas helps to facilitate the start of everyday study.

Durch eine Kooperation mit den Höheren Technischen Lehranstalten (HTL) in Wolfsberg, Klagenfurt, Ferlach und Villach kann sich die Studienzeit für HTL-AbsolventInnen um bis zu einem Jahr verkürzen.

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.
