Mechanical engineering: research and education in Austria

Practical, business-oriented training

One of Austria’s specialities is the dual education system, a combination of theoretical and practical training as carried out in apprenticeship programs and higher vocational schools. Curriculum and key courses of instruction are tailored to the needs of the business community. Companies such as Voestalpine, Magna and Siemens professionally train apprentices and also offer the opportunity to complete an internship. It comes as no surprise that Austrian participants are always ranked among the top in world championship competitions.

Research institutes provide know-how

Recognized research and development institutes specializing in the fields of mechanical engineering, mechatronics and electrical engineering are located in the cities of Vienna, Linz and Graz. More than 60 university institutes and a series of research companies and faculties provide the entire spectrum of required services which companies expect in a supportive research environment, ranging from know-how to the finished product.
