FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences



In 1995, the FH JOANNEUM was founded. Since then, our students appreciate the differences and particular features of FH JOANNEUM: A field-oriented education with a good but not overloaded theoretical foundation. Above all, it offers a lot of practice in semesters abroad or internships in companies. These were huge differences to the classical university studies at that time.


Lecturers and employees of the Institute of Industrial Management at FH JOANNEUM are passing on their know-how about corporate and personal development in the form of short seminars and workshops.In doing so, the knowledgefactoryIWI is facilitating the transfer of knowledge from university to the workplace.


The FH JOANNEUM research strategy rests on three pillars emphasising the social significance of our R&D activities: It promotes ecologically, socially and economically sustainable concepts. It is focused on benefit to society and the living space of individuals and groups. It is committed to an understanding of innovation that combines creative impetus with a solution and market oriented approach.
