Design for a better tomorrow: Our world is in the middle of an unprecedented period of change. Therefore, information designers should try to change society and the world for the better, at least to some extent. We believe that design should be able to shape whole environments and processes, including ways of thinking and acting.

Key topics

Design skills

The Bachelor's degree programme provides students with the design skills necessary to understand and solve challenges creatively. They learn the tools of graphic and web design, the techniques of video production, how to create animations and design interactive elements and spaces. Usability design skills form the basis for designing user-friendly interfaces. Societal, social and historical design contexts as well as professional business skills round off the programme content.


From the fourth semester, students can choose to specialise in Communication Design, Media Design or Interaction Design. The three-month internship during the sixth semester can be completed either in Austria or abroad.

Student projects

Project work in small groups and start-up companies provides practical training in the digital and analog fields of the creative industries. Students apply their knowledge directly in numerous projects, which is ideal preparation for the world of work.
