Automotive Computing Bachelor's Degree Programme, full-time

Drive the digital future of mobility!

The next revolution is in the automotive industry and it is being driven by the convergence of connectivity, electrification and changing customer needs. Besides new engine and propulsion systems that make electric and hybrid vehicles possible, it is digitalisation that will ultimately change cars as well as road infrastructure. In-car assistant technology and inter-car communication can help make driving more secure, more efficient and less harmful to the environment.

This Bachelor’s degree, which is unique in Austria, focuses on the ICT-aspects of connected cars, thereby also taking in areas such as security, efficiency, communications and infotainment. Students acquire know-how in software technology, automotive engineering, the basic principles of technology and the natural sciences as well as personal skills. Topics for further specialisation include Modern Vehicles, Automated Driving and Services.
