  • Special features regarding teaching
    Our modern, well-equipped faculty is based in the well-known Softwarepark Hagenberg, which also houses numerous IT companies and research institutes and thus combines training, research and business in the field of Computer Science in a unique way. There is a reason why Hagenberg is also known as the "Austrian Silicon Valley". Small teams, friendly atmosphere, personal supervision and committed team of full-time and part-time lecturers. The special situation caused by the corona crisis was mastered by switching to distance learning within 3 days.
