Special features regarding teachingBachelor’s degree students can focus on mechanical engineering from the 3rd semester onwards. The first two semesters in Mechatronics and Mechanical Engineering are identical. From the 3rd semester onwards, the number of courses on offer increases with each semester. The 6th semester is the same again for both degree courses. The Master's degree offers a wide range of options for specialisation and interdisciplinary contextual studies. The three specialisations span across 3 semesters and each is worth 6 ECTS credits per semester. 12 ECTS credits must be selected from the contextual studies in two semesters.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe 5th semester of the Bachelor's degree can be attended at another university; the organisational support is provided by the International Office and subject-specific support by the degree course management. The 5th semester is organised like an elective semester. This means that students on an exchange semester do not have to attend the same type of course modules but rather have options within a defined framework. The Master's degree is available in the form of a Double Degree Programme with the University of Agder in Norway.

Support for foundersThe startupstube at the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences brings together students of different disciplines and supports them during the start-up process; it also serves as a meeting point, both virtually and physically. It establishes links to its regional and international partners through access to industrial partners, venture capital companies, legal advice, funding etc. The support is provided in the form of individual mentoring, IT infrastructure and access to the labs, and depends on the maturity level of the project. https://www.fhv.at/studium/service-und-ressourcen/startupstube/
