Engineers with an excellent training and international orientation are of elementary importance for the leading position of the country’s trade and industry. In numerous studies conducted at home and abroad, a continuing substantial need has been identified for engineers with qualifications in mechatronics, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering.Mechatronics unites elements of the traditional disciplines mechanics, electronics and computer science, which interact effectively in computer-controlled plants and generate forward-looking solutions. Mechanical engineering is now one of the most important industries worldwide and a driving force for technical innovation. Electrical Engineering is the backbone of all industrial and scientific development. Increasingly combined with electronics and software engineering, it is a motor for added value and innovation.
With the introduction of the Bachelor in Mechatronics, the MCI has set a milestone in the university scene of western Austria that satisfies the highest international quality standards and the expectations of the scientific and business communities. In addition to an in-depth qualification in the relevant fields of natural science and engineering, the program has a strong focus on a complementary competence in economics, law and social communication (social skills, languages, etc). Motivated lecturers from the business community and the worlds of science and consulting,
the international orientation of the program, a strong focus on practical relevance and the limited number of places guarantee optimum conditions for study with attractive prospects for the future.
In combination with the Master’s program and various other STEM study programs, the Bachelor is a key element in a general technology offensive launched in collaboration with the regional authority, universities and other educational facilities and numerous companies at home and abroad.
