Living in Hagenberg

Hagenberg is an idyllic town in the beautiful Mühlviertel, in the heart of Upper Austria. In the last decade, Hagenberg has established itself as an internationally recognised center for computing and software development.

The University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Hagenberg Campus is part of Softwarepark Hagenberg, the largest technology park for software in Central Europe. The university was founded by RISC (Research Institute for Symbolic Computation), one of the eleven research institutes of the Softwarepark. The university and its students benefit from the vigorous interaction and synergy between the research institutes, the companies and the various educational institutions within Softwarepark Hagenberg.

The outstanding mix of the most modern technology combined with the picturesque setting of the Hagenberg castle gives the town its unique flair. Located just 20km north of Linz, Hagenberg offers internationally recognised, practice-oriented degree programmes in the field of Information Technology away from the bustle of the big city, yet with easy access to the resources of the provincial capital. 

The University of Applied Sciences is housed in a futuristic building equipped with the latest technology. Our modern facilities include a bio lab, a video studio with green box and an audio studio. There are currently more than 1.500 students in Hagenberg studying towards a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the fields of Information and Media Technology.
