EUC Number (Charta):
The FH Campus Wien has existed since 2001, when it resulted from the merger of two course-providing bodies in the technical field. In autumn 2002, it started to provide programmes formerly offered by the Vienna City Academy of Social Work and the Federal Academy of Social Work, Vienna, both of which were closed down in 2005. Finally, in 2007, Higher Education Institutions for Special Allied Health Professions and Midwifery were transferred into the tertiary education sector and integrated into the FH Campus Wien. Currently, the FH Campus Wien offers a wide variety of study programmes: students can choose between 19 Bachelor’s, 14 Master’s and 6 Diploma’s degree programmes as well as 5 Master’s courses in the fields of technology, and management, health, social work, engineering and applied life sciences.
Construction for the new building of the FH Campus Wien in the south of Vienna started in February 2008. The new premises are located in the densely populated 10th district of Vienna, Favoriten, where many different cultures and nationalities mix. In the 2011/12 academic year, all study programmes except Applied Life Sciences and Public Management are held at the new building already. The Applied Life Sciences programme continues at the Campus Vienna Biocenter and at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Muthgasse, where it is very well linked to biotech undertakings and research institutions. The Public Management programme is held at Laudon Palace. Until August 2009, the study programmes of the FH Campus Wien were held at 13 different locations.
Currently there are no network memberships entered for this institution.
