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.

Top researchers as well as highly-qualified specialized personnel are required for practical implementation in order to make innovations marketable. The business location of Austria offers both. There is a long tradition here of application-oriented education, whether at the numerous higher technical colleges (HTL), schools featuring practical technical training or at the 22 public universities, 13 private universities or the 21 universities of applied sciences offering more than 640 different courses of study.

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.

Corona Tracking: New Encryption Technology Ensures Data Protection

The “Corona Heatmap” developed by the Know-Center and the Graz University of Technology shows where people who tested positive for the coronavirus were before the diagnosis i.e., the precise location where they got infected. In this way, conclusions can be drawn about coronavirus hotspots. An innovative process the interface between cryptography and data analysis ensures the necessary data protection.
