Vorarlberg is the most export-oriented state in Austria and a successful business location. This economic success is founded upon on capable and well-trained specialist staff and innovative companies.
High-quality degree and further education programmes are therefore of key importance. With its 14 degree programmes and a large number of further education programmes in business, technology, design and social work, Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FHV) is one of the best universities in Austria.
In addition, the FHV plays a central role in the establishment and operation of research facilities in all four of its academic areas in Vorarlberg. Researchers and students work closely together with a large number of companies in the Microtechnology, User-Centred Technologies, Process- and Product-Engineering and Society and Socio-Economics research centres. Both the university and business benefit from the results of this cooperation. Besides this local cooperation, teaching and research at the FHV is part of a worldwide network. This international orientation supports the global competitiveness of the local economy.
