“As an employee of the FH Wiener Neustadt at the Biotech Campus Tulln, I appreciate the varied activities in teaching and research. The close cooperation with committed students who have a strong interest in new technologies and innovation is particularly noteworthy. The high degree of flexibility at the FH and the high-quality equipment in the laboratories give me the opportunity to contribute my research results to teaching. In doing so, I can offer students an insight into current topics and technologies and thus support them in their professional development and promote their interest in molecular biology. In addition, the exchange with colleagues from related disciplines and the comprehensive range of courses offered by the FH in the field of teaching and health enable me to continue my education.”

University & Family

The University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt (FHWN) is committed to balancing family and career and, therefore, took part in the university and family audit initiated by the Federal Ministry for Families and Youth. Balancing family and career presents a challenge not only for employees but also for managers.

FHWN would like to constantly implement further sustainable measures in the field of work-family balance, family friendliness and the compatibility of career and private life. The measures focus on improving the overall conditions for employees and students with dependents.

Why is the FHWN concerned with family friendliness?

Addressing the issue of family friendliness has enabled FHWN to position itself as a modern employer, thereby contributing to Wiener Neustadt’s image as an attractive university location. With an increasingly culturally diverse workforce and the flexibility of working hours and locations, we are equipped to handle the major challenges of globalisation, such as demographic changes and a resulting shortage of skilled workers.
