Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been causing a media frenzy about the potential benefits for the economy in general, and the world of work in particular. However, AI is not limited to chatbots and language models, but has many more diverse and more complex applications. And for the full range of possibilities to be exploited, it will require comprehensively trained AI engineers who can master practical challenges. Such mastery will only be possible by combining AI methodologies with other essential competences – such as computer science, software development, project management and various soft skills.
*This study program is subject to approval by AQ Austria
You’ll acquire all the skills necessary to see through AI projects from conception to implementation. This includes skills in the acquisition and pre-processing of data, the integration of ready-made AI components, as well as competence in customized machine learning models.
Once an AI solution has proven to be functional, it will need implementation, which, in turn, requires competences in cloud computing and/or embedded systems, plus software development methods and project management.
Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSc)

Online from 2024 for start in October 2024 – details & deadlines on fh-ooe.at/application
University entrance qualification (e.g. A-Levels, university pre-entry certificate, completed vocational matriculate exam), English at B2 level
Due to the practical orientation of the study program, you will become familiar with applying AI methods of computer vision and natural language processing in domains such as industry, medicine/healthcare, business and finance.
Graduates will work, for example, as AI Engineers or data scientists, as product/process owner for intelligent systems, or will advise software companies how to integrate AI components into software systems.
According to the application orientation of the AIS study, AI solutions are developed and implemented as part of projects from the 4th semester onwards. Project ideas usually come from partner companies or one of our numerous research groups. The range of topics is broad, as artificial intelligence plays a role in almost partner companies and research areas on our campus.
The study is internationally oriented, which is why the language of instruction is English. In particular, the professional internship in the 5th semester can be completed abroad. There is also the option of studying the 6th semester at one of the faculty's numerous partner universities.
