FH Vorarlberg: Studium, Forschung und Weiterbildung – Innovation für eine starke Region

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.
