The technology laboratories at Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH Vorarlberg) are equipped to the highest standard and are open to students and, at times, also engineers.
As a student, you will have free access to our laboratories - 24 hours day, 7 days a week.
The Automation Lab (aLab) is a learning and research laboratory at FH Vorarlberg. It is used for development of prototypes in the area of robotics, image processing and control.
The Design Lab (DLab) is a modern laboratory, which is used for teaching and research purposes in all engineering study programmes. The design lab imparts construction mothodology. Fully developed 3D-CAD and CAE-technologies improve the development process.
The Electronics Lab (eLab) is a modernly equipped electronics laboratory, which is used for teaching and research purposes in all engineering study programmes. In the nearby electronic workshop, long-term projects can be worked out and electronic prototypes can be manufactured in an assembly line. Projects in the area of electrical engineering, measurement engineering, signal processing, control engineering and power electronics can be handled.
The activities in the mechanical lab (mLab) involve the areas metrology, production engineering and material testing. One focus is on the manufacturing of complex turned and milled parts. For 5-axes-manufacturing a serial and a parallel-kinematics milling center and also a turning milling center with driven tools are available. The programming of this machines is also part of lab-work as well as reverse engineering by the use of 3D-digitalization.
