In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
Engineering is the process of designing, inventing, building and maintaining machines, structures, tools and other things that are a part of daily life. This is done by combining knowledge of empirical evidence, mathematics and global awareness.
The basic characteristic of Austrian higher education system is a four-year course. After completion of undergraduate degree, the university often have scholarships for those students who may want to further studies to master’s and even to doctorate levels.

Learning from nature for engineering - that is the goal of this international Master's degree program (MSc) taught in English. Nature offers a myriad of solutions to engineering problems. Over the course of four semesters, this program focuses on the implementation of numerous nature-inspired innovations into new technologies and sustainable products and offers an exciting overview of all core areas of biomimetics.
Biomimetics is the process of utilizing natural constructions, processes, and developmental principles by transforming them into systemically engineered solutions that - without nature as a role model - we would not usually think of ourselves. While biomimetics as an interdisciplinary research field is still fairly new, it has four billion years of evolutionary mechanism optimization to show for. Considering the vast bio-cosmos' diversity and the complexity behind the necessary adaptations of systems to the environment, the tremendous potential that biomimetics has to offer to deal with the most pressing issues our society currently faces becomes evident. Through the symbiosis of a biological perspective on one hand and a natural science and engineering perspective on the other, this Master's degree program builds a cross-functional bridge founded on the graduate’s core competencies and hands-on experience....

The study of Mechatronics – a combination of “mechanics” and “electronics” - combines mechanical engineering, electronic engineering and informatics. [+]
Master's Degree in Mechatronics
The study of Mechatronics – a combination of “mechanics” and “electronics” - combines mechanical engineering, electronic engineering and informatics. This interdisciplinary engineering field of study encompasses the collective area ranging from basic substructures, facilities and technology for development, to production and operations of future-oriented technical machinery, appliances and equipment. In the process, systems from technical components are combined with intelligent control systems.Mechatronics has increasingly changed our everyday lives with products and systems such as integrated ABS and EBS in automobiles, DVD and Blue-Ray Players, mobile communications with UMTS systems and video communications. Mechatronics is an essential catalyst for product innovation and the potential is growing more rapidly than ever before.... [-]
Well-educated engineers and scientists are increasingly in demand to meet the challenges of industry and business head-on in the area of polymer technologies. [+]
Master's Degree in Management in Polymer Technology
A Cutting Edge ProgramWell-educated engineers and scientists are increasingly in demand to meet the challenges of industry and business head-on in the area of polymer technologies. The JKU is responding to this demand by creating an academic degree program designed to educate specialists in new high-tech fields of the future.
The Subject AreaPolymer technologies focus on the research and application of the physical, chemical and engineering properties of plastics. The goal is to develop certain plastics that will be needed for further use or production. In order to compete internationally, it is essential for the plastics industry to have access to well-educated polymer engineers who are familiar with cutting-edge technology, the construction of plastic components, and plastics processing procedures. The program is embedded in the framework of polymer technology studies at JKU and has been designed to keep in pace with the diverse demands of various job areas in plastics.... [-]
