Automation technology works at the interface between electronics, informatics, mechanical engineering and business. The challenge when automating technical processes is to produce an optimum mix between mostly conflicting aspects of time, cost, quality, resources and the environment. Here it is important to consider the whole system instead of optimising individual components independently from one another. Modular solutions are therefore becoming increasingly more important.
Turn a flash of genius, a brilliant idea into success! As essential success factors, new innovations are constantly needed in businesses in order to gain a competitive edge. The best idea however, can only become a successful innovation if customer needs and market changes are considered. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important for companies to employ business engineers that have systematic innovation skills.
Information Technologies & Business Informatics
One thing is certain: There is a lack of business informaticians, yet the demand in business continues to grow. In an increasingly complex professional world, specialising in only one field is no longer advantageous. Therefore, business informatics is becoming more important as the link between business and informatics.
Financial Accounting & Management Accounting

Promoting engineering and technology with a robot arm at the WKO Talentcenter
The Talentcenter was founded by the Styria Economic Chamber (WKO Steiermark) and has over 30 test stations where young people can try out different tasks to find out what skills and talents they have. The Degree Programmes in Automation Technology at CAMPUS 02 developed one of the test stations. In the shape of a robot cell, the station allows visitors to investigate their motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Using a simple remote control that resembles one of video game consoles, the visitors can move a robot arm in a three-dimensional space. The aim of the task is to pick up a ball and to drop it into a basket using the arm. To be able to fulfil this task, precision, a high level of concentration and apprehensive skills are required. The task encourages visitors to develop an interest in engineering and technology in a playful way.
Since visitors have shown great interest in this station, more robot cells with new tasks are being developed for the Talentcenter.
