  • Special features regarding teaching
    Vehicle Engineering: vehicle components, drive concepts, road performance; Vehicle Mechatronics: sensors, actuators, signal preparation, system architecture; Vehicle Systems: regulation-, safety- and support systems; Vehicle Informatics: communication structure, Car2X communication; Quality Management: quality planning, quality assurance, quality management systems; Business Economics & Management: innovation, market-oriented management, IPR: Intellectual Property Right, management, controlling, production economics
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    This programme is taught in English and the target group is a mixture of Austrian and international students. It is therefore inherently international. For all those who wish to gain further international experience, however, there is the possibility to spend the fourth semester at one of our 100 international partner universities.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Clarkson University, Potsdam, USA; National University of Maynooth, Maynooth, Irland; TalTech, Tallinn, Estland; Hanze Groningen UAS, Groningen, Niederlande; Feng Chia University, Taichung, Taiwan; City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Laboratories for electrical, control, regulation, process control, drive, sensor, measuring and testing, microelectrical/digital technology, optics, sound, vibration and plastics technology, optics, image processing, product innovation, design prototyping, mechanical material testing and analysis, heat treatment, remelting technology, plasma treatment, coatings, surface technology, 3D scanning, generative manufacturing, metallography, tribology; fully automatic flexible manufacturing and assembly system (robots, CNC machines, transfer system), forming processes and simulation of processes
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The Faculty of Technology in Wels is the largest and strongest research faculty of the FH Oberösterreich: approx. 180 current projects, approx. 9M€ acquired R&D funds per year and approx. 140 R&D employees. Major projects, e.g: Josef-Ressel-Zentrum for innovative multi-body dynamics, Josef-Ressel-Zentrum für thermographic non-destructive testing, K-Zentrum für Feed and Food, Quality, Safety and Innovation, various Interreg projects together with research institutions from Bavaria and the Czech Republic, and many more.
  • Support for founders
    The FH Oberösterreich operates its own transfer centre for business start-ups and entrepreneurship: https://www.fh-ooe.at/welsspitze/unternehmensgruendungen/; opportunities/risk analysis of a business idea for market suitability; potential analysis of innovation and personality; entrepreneur tests; support in the development of the business plan; selection and contact to suitable subsidies and investors; selection and contact to suitable mentors; support during self-positioning, marketing and sales design; establishment and maintenance of further contacts
  • Other special features
    This international Master’s degree programme meets the demand of the motor vehicle industry for engineers who can combine complex individual components into innovative mechatronic systems with improved or completely new functions and in doing so think and act under consideration of qualitative and cost aspects. The fields of activity of graduates are therefore in the execution and management of mechatronic development projects, in the design and validation of mechatronic vehicle systems or as quality engineers in the field of quality assurance in the product development process.
