Specialisation in the masterclasses

At the beginning of their studies, students can choose one of the three masterclasses and thus their individual specialisation. In the masterclasses, students work in small project-oriented groups and acquire in-depth competencies on a theoretical and practical level.

Experimental Media

For media technicians and artists, the masterclass Experimental Media teaches "experiment" and "technology", immersing students in digital technology applications for art, architecture and design in a world of creative work processes. 

Graphic Design

The masterclass Graphic Design is the only graphic-design education in Austria especially for technicians and students interested in the technology of classic and new media environments. Acquire not only theoretical knowledge but learn to technically implement it as well. 


The focus of this master class is on the challenges that photography faces in times of digital and social media. The project work teaches you to combine creative rules with state-of-the-art (media) technology expertise.

Focus on the professional field

In the module "Professional Field", you are familiarised with requirements and perspectives in the areas of "Research", "Doing" and "Founding". You are encouraged to deal specifically with possible occupational fields. You can choose between the following areas: 

  • "Research" in this context means being involved in research, development and innovation.
  • "Doing" addresses those professional aspects in which one's competencies are exercised when commissioned by others, e.g. in an employment relationship.
  • "Founding" refers to the founding of your own company with independent, innovative ideas, services or problem-solving approaches.

Interdisciplinary Elective Module

The iLab programme allows you to participate in an interdisciplinary and intercultural project semester with the working language being English.
