|New at the MCI: Mechatronics-Electrical Engineering|
The Tyrolean Technology Offensive continues – good for the Tyrol, good for the MCI. The Tyrol and the MCI have something to celebrate together: In autumn, a Bachelor program in Mechatronics-Electrical Engineering will be starting in Innsbruck with funding provided by the Federal
Ministry of Science & Research and the support of the Tyrolean regional authority. This will substantially increase the MCI’s capacity and student
places in technical subjects.
The new program is another key element in the technology offensive so vigorously promoted by the Tyrolean regional authority in recent years and further strengthens the regional economy and the Tyrol as a business location with regard to science, innovation and competitive strength.
The introduction of this specialization in Electrical Engineering constitutes the fulfillment of a long-held wish and a valuable addition to the technical study programs available in the Tyrol. It is part of a pattern in which the Tyrol is developing more and more into a technology hub in western Austria.
The specialization in Electrical Engineering is part of the six-semester Bachelor in Mechatronics and can be studied full- or part-time. It is a meaningful addition in terms of synergies to the MCI’s existing program offering in the field of Technology & Life Sciences, which now has no fewer than a thousand students.
Applications are being accepted now. In view of the limited number of places, early application is recommended.Mechatronics-Electrical Engineering at a glance
What else will be new at the MCI in autumn?
In the framework of the Tyrolean Technology Offensive, a number of other innovative programs are also starting at the MCI, offering meaningful additions and synergies with the existing range of study programs.
Master in Mechatronics – Mechanical Engineering: Autumn 2012 marks the launch of the part-time Master in Mechatronics – Mechanical Engineering, an ideal solution for Master students who wish to continue to work while studying. The full-time version has now been running for a year. The program, which is held completely in English, is seen as a door-opener to careers throughout the world.
Master in Biotechnology: Biotechnological processes from the genetic basics to the final marketable product are the focus on this innovative study program. Research projects based on practical cooperation guarantee economic relevance and healthy prospects for the future.
Bachelor in Media, Communication & IT: This new study program offers innovative competence in multimedia design, software, content management and webmastering, with exciting career opportunities in the creativity industry.
Master in Environmental, Process & Energy Engineering: This forward-looking study program communicates in-depth know-how in engineering science and professional expertise in international growth industries with outstanding prospects in green technologies.What the experts say:
