What is "dual" about this degree program?
"Dual" means that the training takes place not only at the FHV but also in one of the partner companies. In the study Electronics and Information Technology Dual, part of the training was shifted to the partner companies, because an implementation in the professional environment is much more effective than at the university. 20% of the study is therefore dedicated to the specialisation and practical implementation of the theoretical content in the practical companies.
What is the difference between full-time and part-time studies?
In Austria, there are many full-time and increasingly also part-time degree programmes. The dual study combines the advantages of both forms of study in one time model: moderate additional load through the well-organized combination of study and professional activity, as well as continuous monthly salary from the 3rd semester. Thus, the FHV opens up a new, attractive opportunity for young people to develop their professional career AND their academic career.
