MCI develops and implements innovative programs in cooperation with companies and non-profit organizations. These are designed to provide the different target groups with interactive and informative events on current topics.
State-of-the-art expertise, constructive exchange of experiences, and a lively interaction between theory and practice are essential elements of MCI technical training programs.
Automation and control engineering offers companies a wide variety of opportunities to significantly improve the provision of services across various sectors. As a sub-area spanning the fields of mechanical and electrical engineering, automation and control engineering can substantially increase process reliability and speed in positioning, temperature control, or speed control.
Automation and control engineering assists in improving existing products and services. Moreover, the discipline achieves increases in production efficiency, along with enabling the development of completely new solutions and products.
Content & benefits
The intensive seminar efficiently conveys relevant knowledge and methods that correspond to the current state of the art and are directly applicable in professional life. It consists of the following modules:
This technical training program is designed for professionals with relevant secondary education (e.g. higher technical education in the fields of electrical, communications, or mechanical engineering) or university training in a related discipline (e.g. industrial engineering, physics, mathematics, etc.). Ideally, participants are exposed to application-oriented questions of automation and control technology in their professional capacity, or have the opportunity to generate and realize significant improvement potential in their respective organization by means of the relevant expertise.
The participation fee is 2,980 euros excl. VAT or 3,576 euros incl. VAT and must be paid in advance. This fee includes tuition, extensive course materials and transcripts, beverages during breaks, and a free membership to the MCI Alumni & Friends association.
A 10% discount on the program fee is available to groups of three or more participants from the same company or institution.

Securing a sustainable energy supply and developing new ways to generate energy will be among the most urgent global challenges in the coming decades. The price trends for all fossil fuels are increasing, while the supply is decreasing. The introduction of new energy taxes is already being discussed. The efficient use of energy is increasingly becoming expensive and therefore a competitive factor for production and service companies, even in Tyrol.
This tailor-made Corporate Energy Management program was developed together with the Cluster Renewable Energies of the Standortagentur Tyrol (agency responsible for promoting Tyrol as a business location). It provides an optimal foundation for sustainable and efficient energy management in companies.
Course participants receive a well-founded tool to efficiently improve energy use in their companies. The training focuses on teaching basic technical knowledge about the use of energy in the most important production processes.
Energy Auditor Qualification
The course is based on the Federal Energy Efficiency Act, which took effect in 2015, and follows the regulations set out for the qualification as energy auditor. It covers all relevant topics required for training as an energy auditor and is therefore unique in Austria. After successfully completing the course, participants with sufficient practical experience are licensed to carry out energy audits according to the Energy Efficiency Act and ÖNORM EN 16247.
The program comprises a total of five sessions lasting two days each, and covers all theoretically relevant parts of energy auditor training with nine credits in the field of buildings, thirteen in the field of processes, and eight in transport.
The program is designed for employees in production and service companies in the German-speaking world who are responsible for corporate energy management or plan on focusing more on this task in the future.
The participation fee is 2,600 euros excl. VAT or 3,120 euros incl. VAT and must be paid in advance. This fee includes tuition, extensive course materials and transcripts, beverages during breaks, and a free membership to the MCI Alumni & Friends association.
Process engineering is an important, interdisciplinary field of expertise within the engineering sciences. It deals with the industrial transformation of raw materials into salable, intermediate or final products and the physical, chemical, or biological processes involved. As a transformative discipline, process technology has recently experienced very strong growth in the areas of environmental technology, energy technology, food and raw materials technology, as well as biotechnology.
A large part of global industrial production is related to process engineering processes. Therefore, fundamental knowledge of process engineering is also of great benefit to natural scientists and engineers working in other disciplines that are faced with process and process engineering issues.
The intensive seminar conveys up-to-date knowledge and modern methods that can be applied and implemented directly in professional life. The main topics covered are:
This program is primarily directed at participants with a natural sciences or engineering background. In their professional capacity, participants should be exposed to process engineering issues and want to build or deepen fundamental knowledge in the field of process engineering in the shortest possible time.
The participation fee is 790 euros excl. VAT or 948 euros incl. VAT and must be paid in advance. This fee includes tuition, extensive course materials and transcripts, beverages during breaks, and a free membership to the MCI Alumni & Friends association.
In the age of established technologies, the optimization of existing processes is increasingly crucial, becoming even more important than fundamental new developments. However, optimization requires a profound understanding of the underlying basic processes. Such an understanding has already been largely achieved for mechanical and electrotechnical problems — not least due to the use of simulation technologies.
In the context of fluid-mechanical processes, however, the corresponding findings are still lacking. The rapid development of high-performance computing systems as well as advances in the solution methods of the corresponding partial differential equations now promise to remedy this situation. With the parallelization of algorithms, we are approaching the solution of many industrially relevant problems, which will enable us to accelerate product development cycles and increase the competitiveness of companies in this domain.
The four-day workshop is designed to provide an introduction to the world of numerical flow simulation. Participants do not need an in-depth training in flow mechanics or numerical methods to be able to implement the course content.
