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
- Electrical engineering and physics
- Computer science and software engineering
- 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.
