Dual Learning

We offer two versions, depending on your current employment status:

If you are already active in a company or in the area of research, you can maintain your current employment and complete practical training blocks in your own company. In case your employer is not a partner company of the St. Pölten UAS yet, the company can become an educational partner – following examination by the Academic Director.

Version 2:

Become an Employee in One of our Educational Partner Companies.
Within the framework of a recommended consultation, students have the opportunity to express their interest in a certain research topic. The UAS then supports the student in his/her search for a suitable project and company partner.
