Building Technology and Management

Language of instruction: German

This master program is aimed at educating facility managers and engineers who are capable of mastering current and future challenges of the field (such as implementation of integrated planning and "Nearly Zero Energy Buildings Standards") based on their knowledge and competence.

This is the right program for you if you wish to master the necessary skills for planning, construction, operation and maintenance of energy and cost-efficient technical facilities in residential as well as non-residential buildings.

Begun in 1994, the program sells itself through expert instructors and the means for applied research and development in a well-equipped lab directly at the university.  The curriculum combines content such as technical building equipment, facility management, control systems engineering and control technology with European business law and safety.  With potential for various areas of specialization in facility engineering and facility management, this program is unique in Austria.
