Extra-occupational – German
Bachelor Degree Programme in Automation Technology

Automation technology connects different specialist areas and technologies, giving the Bachelor degree programme a highly interdisciplinary approach to technical and operative activities. Besides technical competences in core areas, automation technology students also acquire essential practice-relevant communication, social and methodological skills. Specialist elective modules are of particular importance, because they represent the technical diversity of the field and offer students the opportunity to tailor their course profile. Independent, practice-oriented team work on specialist topics plays a key role in the process. To complement the qualification profile, students acquire English language skills and learn economic basics.

Admission Criteria

 

 

Online Application

The path to your programme starts with registration in our campus management system and the subsequent online application. If you have already studied at CAMPUS 02, registration is no longer necessary and you can apply directly in C02online.

 

BA Application Test

The application test offers you the opportunity to prove your suitability for the desired degree programme(s) and is therefore an important part of the application process. After successful submission and the first check of your online application, you will therefore receive an invitation to the application test by e-mail.

 

Submission of Application Documents

After the application test you have a week’s time to complete your application documents online in the self-service area.

 

 

Personal Interview

The last step towards your programme is the personal interview conducted by the board of examiners. The interview gives you the chance to prove yourself and your skills face-to-face or virtually.

 

Academic and professional life directly connected

Together with lecturers from well-known companies and their Captains, CAMPUS 02 will accompany you on your academic journey. Science meets business: Projects for various companies help put your acquired theoretical and specialist knowledge into practice. Thereby, you are constantly and directly in contact with the professional world. This extra-occupational degree programme lets you enter a network of students, lecturers, researchers and businesses to achieve a common goal: sustainable success in business.

The extra-occupational degree programme at CAMPUS 02 is designed for full-time working professionals. Since 2005, professional experience is however no longer obligatory in order to be considered for this programme. This way, school graduates and others without professional experience are also given the chance to study at CAMPUS 02.

Personal Development The 3 pillars

Technology goes regional!

  • With our cooperation partner “Kraft. Das Murtal” we offer 15 study places of the Bachelor Degree Programme in Automation Technology in the Murau Murtal region. During the first half of the degree programme, classes will mainly take place in the Murtal region, during the second half of the degree programme classes will be held in Graz. Thus, students have the opportunity to complete a considerable part of their studies near their hometown.

Business and Engineering Career

Today, the shortage of highly-qualified engineers is still an issue, particularly in Austria. Through the interdisciplinary approach of CAMPUS 02’s Degree Programme in Automation Technology students are trained to be able to work in a variety of fields, making them technical generalists. The degree programme’s output has also kept the market demand for versatile automation technologists stable for years, regardless of crises in individual economic areas. The elective modules of the degree programme offer the chance to work in specialised fields. Not only are graduates wanted for large industrial businesses, but also for many small/middle-sized companies with specialised and highly technologically mature products.

FIELDS OF ACTIVITY

  • Product and application development (design, computer-aided engineering, hard and software design)
  • System integration and production (production planning and scheduling, commissioning, production control)
  • Process optimisation (process planning, system analysis, use of simulations, measurement and control engineering)
  • Measurement data management, acquisition, processing, transfer, visualisation)
  • Trial and test technology (laboratory operations, test bed development and operation)
  • Evaluation and quality management (machine maintenance, resource management, service and repairs)

Views & Voices

The multi-faceted nature of automation technology coupled with the outstanding knowledge of lecturers from industry and business makes this degree programme highly attractive. Students are not only provided with theoretical knowledge, but they are also excellently prepared for the challenges in daily working practice. The extra occupational degree programme also offers the opportunity to build up and develop a broad network of contacts in a wide range of industries.

I can recommend the Degree Programme in Automation Technology to anyone who wants to advance their technical and social competences as well as expand their specialist knowledge. Students receive broad insight into the three essential pillars of automation technology, can choose to specialise in one of them and adapt their personal soft skills to business demands.
