The rapid march of environmental technologies is making automated building services one of the most innovative fields of the construction sector, and one that is inextricably linked to demands for energy efficiency and environmentally sound construction. This program covers all aspects of heating, ventilation, climate control and electrical systems along with low energy and passive house standards. It aims to give you a command of the system as a whole.
What we offer you
In the 20 years and more that FH Campus Wien has been running civil engineering programs, the university of applied sciences has built up a wealth of expertise and a broad network that offers you numerous possibilities both during your program and in your subsequent professional life. This network includes construction firms such as STRABAG SE, which cooperates with FH Campus Wien in the further education of its staff and other areas. The final milestone on the educational pathway is the start of the Green Building architecture program. Students in the program benefit because we provide the necessary interfaces between modern building services and civil engineering and architecture in-house. Aside from interdisciplinary theory, practical relevance is our top priority. During the program you will work on an interdisciplinary building equipment project, planning a complex system of building equipment for a commercial or a residential structure. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.
What makes this degree program special
It is no longer enough to 'tack on' a solution as an afterthought: clients demand comprehensive, forward-looking concepts that include efficient and flexible answers to the trends and usages of the future. That's why rather than focus on the development or production of individual systems, this program revolves around the ways in which heating, ventilation, cooling, sanitary and electrical components in a system interact, with particular reference to civil engineering and architecture.
Aside from the study of low energy and passive house standards, it is the emphasis on taking the whole system into consideration from initial planning stage to interdisciplinary interface that makes this program special. You will have achieved your goal only when a system's entire cycle - from production to application - delivers positive energy performance: at that point, a building is operating sustainably and self-sufficiently.
