Launch your tech education.

Our bachelor program Informationstechnik is a modern three-year curriculum in which students learn a broad set of enginering skills. The program is mainly taught in German language; some advanced courses are in English. Two branches of study (majors) are offered: the standard information and communications engineering major and an engineering management major (in German: Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen Informationstechnik). 

The contents of the engineering program can be structured as follows:

Information and communications engineering

  • Electronics and circuits
  • Signals and systems
  • Measurement and control engineering
  • Computer and network engineering

Basics in mathematics and sciences

  • Mathematics
  • Electrical engineering and physics
  • Computer science and software engineering

Nontechnical subjects

  • Soft skills
  • Free electives

Practical and project experience

  • Laboratory information and communications engineering
  • Bachelor thesis and seminar

Graduates from this bachelor program find jobs in high-tech industry and technology consulting. They are also entitled to enroll into the ICE master program in Klagenfurt.
