Where to go for advice

It’s natural to have a lot of questions when starting university. But don’t worry! There are plenty of places ready to offer help and advice. At the start of semester, the Austrian National Students’ Union/Union of Students (ÖH) runs Welcome days and tutorials for students in their first semester. You can also get in touch with your student representative at any time. You will always receive advice from a student in a later semester who is familiar with your programme of study and who is equipped to give you some useful tips.

The Programme Director is responsible for issues relating to the organisation and governance of your programme. They decide whether examinations taken at another domestic or overseas institution can be recognised by AAU and also issue degree certificates.

Credit transfer options

Students at a Höhere Technische Lehranstalt (Higher Technical Institute or HTL) who have passed certain subjects at secondary level may be able to transfer credit so that it counts towards certain courses run by the university. If you have any questions about credit transfer, the Programme Director for your chosen programme will be happy to help. You can find examples of credit transfers from a selection of HTLs here.

Research engineers working with wireless transmission systems develop new methods and algorithms for transmitting measurement data between environmental sensors. They test these methods using prototypes and head up international projects alongside partners in the fields of sensor technology, informatics and biology.

Systems architects working in transport system management develop and test algorithms that evaluate toll system data so that transport information can be collated in real-time. They coordinate the design of traffic management systems based on this data and work closely with project teams in road transport infrastructure and traffic control centres.

Development engineers working in medical electronics are responsible for setting the specifications for the analogue and digital circuitry used in CAT scanners and for developing and implementing this circuitry. They are also share responsibility for ensuring that the entire production process runs smoothly from start to finish, and work closely with project teams in mechatronic and software development.

Java software developers and their colleagues play a key role in the ongoing development of new online marketing systems. They are involved in the software development process right from the word go, through to the very end and work independently on web development projects and sub-projects requiring Java, ensuring all the while that existing product portfolios are continuously developed and expanded upon.

System engineers are in charge of looking after and maintaining server landscapes (e.g. Unix/Linux, Windows). They research and evaluate new technologies and techniques to increase performance; monitor system components and perform system back-ups. In addition, system engineers are tasked with designing and integrating security-related concepts into systems, ongoing troubleshooting and problem-solving and documenting these tasks. System engineers are also responsible for the optimisation and conceptual development of existing IT structures.

Load and performance testing consultants execute load and performance tests by undertaking a requirements analysis, designing the test, developing and implementing the test, conducting the test, analysing the test results and establishing a test cycle for each specific client. Since they offer support on a variety of different matters (e.g. application analysis or performance optimisation), consultants also have a lot of contact with their clients.

Web designers are responsible for designing and building themes for content management systems (CMS) and for building entire websites. They need an excellent knowledge of CSS and HTML, as well as a lot of creativity, and must be open to working on a variety of different topics.

They are also responsible for designing reporting strategies and taking measures based on these strategies. They are also involved in developing conceptual specifications for IT systems.

Mathematicians / Statisticians have been affected by the radical transformation of the energy markets. Procurement processes and business transactions have become extremely complex and are defined increasingly by the power exchanges. A strong background in mathematics and statistics is therefore required for making the necessary optimisations to these processes. Statistics-based tasks in the energy sector include complex options pricing, demand forecasts, weather data and stock market developments. Because of this environment, energy companies have a diverse range of resources for modelling their energy purchases at their disposal. The most effective procurement mix is identified using selection processes based on individual mathematical optimisation models.

Credit risk analysts are responsible for analysing credit risk, structuring and ratings, and even for project finance when applications are received from large clients. They also study and assess financial models in existing balance sheet analyses, conduct their own risk analyses making recommendations directly to decision-makers and formulate credit conditions based on risk. They also check, record and process waiver requests and develop risk handbooks and risk management processes on a continuous basis.

Actuaries compile balance sheets for investment and risk associations and are responsible for forecasting and financial modelling, as well as calculating premiums and claims. They also offer support to specialist sectors on current issues relating to insurance.
