European Project Semester (EPS)

At St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences, EPS is embedded in the Department of Media and Digital Technology and focuses on media technology and media production. The projects are carried out in cooperation with the technology and creative industries.

The following labs are open to students enrolled in EPS:

  • Elec­tronics lab
  • Inter­active media lab
  • HD video studio
  • Audio studios
  • Post-​production studios
  • Photo studio
  • Campus Radio studio

EPS students work in international project teams while simultaneously attending lectures related to the successful completion of their project. They acquire skills in audio and video editing which help them prepare an optimal project presentation. Teambuilding events and organised social activities also play an important role in the project semester.
