TestimonialsWhy study Mobile Computing?

René Giretzlehner, MSc
Runtastic GmbH, Pasching bei Linz

"During my studies I really appreciated the excellent infrastructure on campus, the collaborative environment between students and professors and their support in the implementation of my own ideas and projects. Moreover, Hagenberg maintains direct contact with many different kinds of businesses which is perfect for young and aspiring entrepreneurs."

René graduated from the Bachelor and the follow-up Master programme "Mobile Computing". Already during his studies René and some fellow students developed the App Runtastic which soon after became a world wide success story and one of the most downloaded sports apps ever.

Master student in Mobile Computing, Spain

"During my two-year stay for my Master's degree in Hagenberg I enjoyed the warm company of a rich international community while I learned about many cool topics related to software development, focused on mobile technologies. I loved the student community overall, but the friendly and dynamic mood that I experienced with the teachers (and most of the FH staff, as well) really impressed me."


Michael Troger
Master student in Mobile Computing, Austria

"I’m studying Mobile Computing because I believe that the mobile computer devices, wearables and the IoT are very promising technologies for our future. There are not that many universities that offer a degree specialised in this area. The theoretical and the practical knowledge that you get at the university is very valuable for finding an interesting and a well-paid job. I especially like the great working environment at the university. If you get stuck, you always find somebody to help you."

Master student in Mobile Computing, India

"I strongly believe that an engineer should be instinctive, innovative, and quick to adapt and adopt new technologies, which is only possible with a solid foundation and an in-depth knowledge of various subjects. Thanks to my Master's degree in Hagenberg I get the opportunity to learn about the most recent advances in the technologies and techniques that play a crucial role in the design of large real-world systems. Equal emphasis is laid on both theoretical and practical aspects of the degree programme which makes our courses very interesting and interactive."
