Career Prospects


With their knowledge, power electronics engineers are perfectly trained for the sectors of control and automation technology, industrial electronics, sensor technology, drive technology, power supply, or high-voltage technology.


For example, you will work as an electronics developer, application engineer, measurement engineer, power engineer, mechatronics engineer for electrical engineering and automation, production engineer or printed circuit board designer.


Typical duties include, but are not limited to, designing electronic devices or circuits, organizing and directing maintenance and repair of existing electronic systems, or developing specifications for production.


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 Power Electronics 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.
