Über das Studium:

Aerospace Engineering has always been the most outstanding discipline of all the engineering fields. Far from being limited to the Aerospace field alone, aerospace engineers can be found in every field of technology where the most challenging demands must be met.

The Aerospace Engineering Department of the Fachhochschule Wiener Neustadt strives to prepare their students for  challenging tasks in their future professions. For this purpose, an outstanding curriculum has been implemented. Most of the courses are given by lecturers from leading Aerospace Engineering companies using the newest methods and tools (such as ANSYS, CADFEM, CATI software) and thereby ensure the most up-to-date education for our students .  In addition, the curriculum was developed so that the theory taught in the courses can be applied directly either in numerous student projects or in the outstanding research in various fields of Aerospace Engineering (see Research & Development).

Berufsaussichten / Jobs:

Good job opportunities for Aerospace Engineers in a large variety of industries*

The aviation andaerospace industry, where developing flight and spacecraft and their components are designed and tested, is only one potential employer for air and space engineers. Approximately 500 to 600 graduates leave colleges and universities yearly. They work, for example, with airlines and airports, in the automotive industry, the wind industry, in engineering or consulting firms. They also work in the production field, where they organize aircraft production, or R&D, on the construction of aircraft or components like engines. In cooperation with public authorities, they help develop rules and guidelines for safety of the aircraft. Air and space engineers can also work in quality assurance or as experts in accident research.

Aerospace Engineers urgently needed*

“A skilled and qualified labour supply is essential for the competitiveness of the Aerospace Industry. Generally speaking, the quality of education and training in Europe shows a high standard. But there is no guarantee that Europe can keep up with the changing world in a way that maintains or enhances its technological position, as the demand for professional engineers and technicians will grow in all levels of the value chain. Worries about skills shortages are widespread in aerospace industries. European industry sources indicate that the availability of skilled workers and engineers has emerged as an important issue. Demand for highly skilled European aerospace workers is also growing at the lower levels of the value chain. Most of the worries about skills shortages are directed at engineering”


Assessment of the applications and admission to Aerospace Engineering takes place on a rolling basis.

All applications are submitted online, including necessary documentation. Original documents must be provided by standard mail  when requested to do so.
Applicants who require a visa to study in Austria should prepare to collect the documents required by the Austrian consular service as soon as they are notified that their application has been received and is being evaluated.

Students of the master programme must be in Wiener Neustadt at the start of the programme i.e. day of immatriculation (September). Late arrivals may be refused admission to the programme.
