Austria: in the Heart of Europe

Austria (not Australia!), the country of Mozart, Arnold Schwarzenegger and the “Sound of Music”; skiing nation and home to the famous Sacher chocolate cake. But also a central European hub, a geographical, economic and cultural bridge between East and West in Europe! A small but dynamic country with a thriving economy and innovation and technology leader in many areas. An attractive region seeking engineering talent. Your education destination and the starting point of your career!

The central location in Europe allows close cooperation with European partners and excursions to close-by companies and landmarks. Our European Study FieldTrip after your first year features company visits, exhibitions and major specific points of interests in Germany, Czech Republic, Austria and Italy.

Wels: a Student City

Wels is a city situated right in the center of Austria (between Salzburg and Vienna), a dynamic economic location with a rich culture, leisure facilities and great transportation infrastructure. The Wels Castle and the baroque town hall are visible signs of a 2,000 years history.

When the weather warms, the center comes alive with open-air concerts, film festivals and markets. Also in winter there are plenty opportunities: skiing, snow shoe hiking or ice skating. The innovative economic strength of small and medium-sized enterprises in the greater metropolitan area is recognized internationally and forms a basis for industry cooperation.
