WORK-FRIENDLY

Classes

Course units take place on Mondays from 8:00 to 16:00 as well as on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 13:45 ­to 21:00. The timetable is organised within these periods. The number of hours and their position on the timetable can vary from semester to semester. This organisational form allows students to engage in an occupation of up to 30 hours per week.

We shape the industry of tomorrow

In coordination with other higher education institutions, CAMPUS 02 has always placed a strong emphasis on connecting work and study — a distinctive feature that sets CAMPUS 02 apart from other higher education institutions. Through the Degree Programmes in IT & Business Informatics and their focus on software engineering, CAMPUS 02 has offered the following degree programmes in Graz: An extra-occupational Bachelor’s since 2006, an extra-occupational Master’s since 2008 (formerly a diploma degree programme from 2000 to 2006) and a cooperative Bachelor’s in Business Software Development since 2018.

The university of applied sciences Bachelor’s in Business Data Science contributes to meeting the increasing demand for informaticians on the labour market in a sustainable manner. The Bachelor’s provides training in software and web development, data and information visualisation and data science in particular. In addition, a highly business-centred approach is used in all course units to make the knowledge and skills conveyed especially practice-relevant.

The work-friendly full-time organisational form of the Bachelor’s offers students who do not aim to enter the labour market straight away a smooth transition to work life. Its special organisational form permits professional activities through the combination of intensive weeks at the beginning of the semester and attendance-based days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) during the semester.

To gain international experience, students can choose to study their fourth semester abroad at the University of Zagreb. As of the fifth semester, students do an internship, write Bachelor’s theses at and in cooperation with businesses and work on practice-relevant assignments provided by partners from the industry.
