Collaboration with research
Gain insights into research
The FHV is one of the most research oriented universities of applied sciences in Austria. Studies and research are closely linked. The courses of the master's degree in have a very close thematic connection to research centres at the FHV. Within the framework of internationally embedded research projects, open questions are solved for regionally active companies or institutions as well as for corporations with a global reputation.
An important component in the development of your personal research skills is the final master's thesis. This typically examines a question within the framework of a research project at the FHV or in cooperation with Business and Management on the basis of scientific methods.
The master's degree in Computer Science works intensively with the following research centres:
Digital Factory Vorarlberg
The research centre Digital Factory Vorarlberg deals with various aspects of digital transformation and digitalization in the production of goods.
The research centre Business Informatics investigates new information and communication technologies and analyzes their business potential in cooperation with regional, national and international industry and research partners. Here, the (re)organization of business processes and products is the focus of technology-driven applied research. In particular, the research centre Business Informatics investigates the impact of new "enabling technologies" (e.g. IoT, Blockchain, etc.) on the areas of Extended Product and Extended Enterprise.
Human-Centered Technologies (HCT)
The activities in research and development in the HCT research centre aim at a better understanding of the user of technical products and systems of developers as well as designers and as a result products with the optimal characteristics as well as functions arise in each case. In accordance with its objectives, the HCT research centre is concerned with the recording and interpretation of human experience and behaviour in rooms and buildings, with hardware and software and in virtual reality. Depending on the area of application, user data is recorded and used continuously or on a case-by-case basis - to control control loops, optimize user interfaces or visualize information.
