The goal of this Master's degree program is to maintain or improve the independence and quality of life of people with the aid of technical products, applications and services. Technology, health, therapy, clinical work and research interact in the transfer of basic know-how available in occupational therapy to robotics, or when deploying technical systems to analyze and support sequences of movement. You will develop products, aids, games or systems to assist in enabling ill and disadvantaged people to actively participate in everyday life.

What we offer you

At FH Campus Wien we draw on the knowledge incorporated in more than 60 of our programs to compile innovative degree programs spanning the intersections between disciplines. The concept of Health Assisting Engineering is that of an interdisciplinary Master's degree program. The program merges the two growth areas of Technology and of Health and will continue to develop this interface. Our know-how is in demand already: Our Master's degree program boasts contracts from and collaborations with organizations such as the Austrian Institute of Technology, the Ovos Media GmbH and the Danish Invencon, all of whom are specifically looking for people knowledgeable in this interdisciplinary field. We also cooperate with the Technical and the Medical Universities of Vienna. Interdisciplinary projects are part of our university's research strategy. This offers you the opportunity of participating in interdisciplinary projects. You thereby contribute to the active dialog in the Scientific Community. You are in a position in practice to build on your acquired and scientifically verified know-how. Practical relevance is also guaranteed through our Campus Lecture evenings which are open to all and offer contributions by prominent experts.

What makes this degree program special

Combining know-how in the fields of technology and health is increasingly important in the professional field. Training and further education programs, however, still do not satisfy the actual demand for experts by far. This has occasioned us at FH Campus Wien to combine the disciplines in our institution in a unique way. Researchers, teaching staff and practitioners from several fields of technology and health have jointly structured a new type of Master's degree program. External research facilities, companies, professional associations and patient representatives contributed valuable input to develop a curriculum that is based on needs and state-of-the-art.
