Overview

The University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria is a national leader in its field. They offer internationally recognised, practice-oriented degree programmes at four locations in the heart of Upper Austria. As part of our commitment to developing international links, we maintain contacts with some 200 partner universities around the world.

One of our major focuses is the national economy, and our research and development centers are continually developing cutting edge products for a wide range of practical applications. This solid combination of theory and practice has brought us regional and nationwide acclaim. 

In addition, Austria is a beautiful country in the heart of Europe with a rich cultural heritage.  It was the home of Mozart, Klimt, Freud, and “The Sound of Music.” 

Austria’s snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear lakes and rivers and historic cities such as Salzburg and Vienna attract tourists from all over the world. The Austrian standard of living is one of the highest in the world.
