Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We would like to take this opportunity to give you an overview of the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt (FHWN) and its networks.
The University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt was founded as the first of its kind in 1994 and counts among the top educational institutions in our state. Currently, more than 3600 students are enrolled in a Bachelor or Master programme at one of our campuses: Wiener Neustadt, Wieselburg, Tulln and Vienna. More than 10000 of our graduates are now pursuing successful careers both in Austria and abroad.
Internationally networked as well as firmly anchored on a regional level, the FHWN provides extensive and future-oriented educational and research programmes. At present, we offer 34 Bachelor and Master programmes* in five faculties: Business, Engineering, Health Sciences, Security, and Sport. More than 300 employees and 1300 lecturers provide for a modern and efficient practice-oriented education.
We are acting according to our credo: perspectives through applied learning. Through our practice-oriented educational concept, our graduates are offered a wide range of perspectives for a successful professional career. In the 2015 Universum Talent Research study, the excellent job perspectives were confirmed by our students who voted the FHWN first as the university with the greatest “employability” – the competence to apply the acquired skills directly on the job.
In addition to a high practical relevance, our focus is on applied research. Our many research labs, functional spaces and seminar rooms are equipped with up-to-date technology guaranteeing a first class education. Furthermore, our engineering and scientific degree programmes in their research- and development projects are supported by FOTEC, the FHWN’s own research company.
Another main focal point at FHWN is our internationality. With currently 95 partner universities all over the world, our students have many opportunities to spend a semester abroad to further their studies or undertake their internship. At FHWN, interacting and networking with (inter)national partners in business, industry and research provide valuable contacts when launching a professional career.
Thus connected and networking, we are working on strengthening our position in the Austrian educational sector. We are looking forward to taking the journey to a successful future with you.
