Alexander Leicht completed his apprenticeship as an installation and building services technician at an unusual location - Vienna Airport.

His superiors there soon recognised his potential and motivated him to continue his education. At an education fair in Vienna, he ended up talking to someone from Burgenland University of Applied Sciences and the Bachelor's degree programme in Building and Energy Technology. The interesting interview, the part-time organisation at weekends and the opportunity to obtain a university entrance qualification free of charge via a one-year course convinced him.

Alexander has now successfully completed the preparatory course and the Bachelor's degree programme. And that's not all: he is now continuing his studies in the Master's degree programme in Sustainable Energy Systems at Burgenland University of Applied Sciences. There is also news on the professional front: as a planning expert for the HVAC sector (heating, air conditioning, ventilation), he is now employed by the company Allplan. There he is responsible for the planning of technical building systems, technical inventory analyses, refurbishment and optimisation measures and the creation of energy concepts.

He says about his Bachelor's degree programme:

There were a few subjects such as thermodynamics, control engineering and heating engineering, from which I learnt a lot. Especially if you come from a practical background, the theoretical insight offered within the degree programme is very interesting.

Alexander Leicht, student at the FH Burgenland

Alexander is studying sustainable energy systems because he believes that the big picture will become more important in the future in terms of climate change. My long-term path is towards planning and consulting. I want to build up a broad knowledge base now."
