Admission requirements: Master Innovation and Technology Management

Master’s degree programs build on a completed bachelor’s degree program and allow students to specialize or focus on topics in more detail or to expand their existing expertise.

You must meet subject-matter requirements to be admitted to the Innovation and Technology Management master’s degree program. Prerequisites include a bachelor’s degree from a UAS in a relevant subject matter or an equivalent degree from a recognized post-secondary educational institution (at least 180 ECTS credits) in Austria or another country.

If basic equivalence has been established except for a few missing prerequisites, the program director can require students to take exams to establish full equivalence. These exams are taken during the master’s program.

The Bachelor’s certificate must be submitted no later than November 15, 2022.

When do I meet the admission requirements?

Skills-related admission requirements for a Master’s degree program at a university of applied sciences is a completed relevant Bachelor’s degree program from a university of applied sciences or the completion of an equivalent degree program at a recognized domestic or foreign post-secondary educational institution (cf. section 4(4) of the University of Applied Sciences Studies Act, FHStG).

Relevant qualifications include such domestic or foreign Bachelor’s degrees in which it can be proven that a total of at least approx. 60 ECTS in technical subjects (e.g. electrical engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, etc.), natural sciences (e.g. mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, etc.) and/or (preferably technology-related) business administration (e.g. project management, process management, production management, logistics, etc.) have been accumulated.

In individual cases (e.g. if parts of the skills-based admission requirements were acquired within the framework of school education or within the framework of professional practice, etc.) the head of the degree program shall decide if the admission criteria have been fulfilled.

Knowledge of German and English must correspond at least to a B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

The skills-based admission requirements for the Master’s degree program “Innovation and Technology Management” are thus deliberately kept flexible so that the program can be taken both by graduates of a technical and of an economics Bachelor’s degree program. We consider the heterogeneous competence profiles (technology, informatics, management) of first-year students to be a great opportunity, which we consciously exploit by working on case studies or projects in mixed teams (peer learning).

What prerequisites do I need to meet if I am applying from outside Austria?

Degree program applicants must have language skills equivalent to level B2 or higher of the Common European Framework Reference for Languages and must be able to submit a certificate of their proficiency. Applicants who have a diploma or university degree in the language of instruction are not required to provide a certificate of their proficiency.

A number of documents (e.g. leaving certificates) are required to show that you meet the admission requirements for a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. If your documents were issued abroad, you will need to have these certified in line with the relevant guidelines so that they can be recognized in Austria – and thus by UAS Technikum Vienna. If your documents have not been issued in German or in English, you must also submit a German or English translation which must also meet certain criteria. You can select the country in which your documents were issued on the following page, from which you are then forwarded to the associated legalization regulations and translation rules.

The program director can determine on an individual basis whether an applicant meets admission requirements.
