State-of-the art infrastructure

We offer our students plenty of space and facilities for their academic development. Our state-of-the-art labs and workplaces are key assets in this respect. We offer our students plenty of space and facilities for their academic development. They have 24/7 access to state-of-the-art labs, IT infrastructure and professional software (MatLab / Simulink, IPSEpro, NEPLAN, VISIM, VISUM, AutoCAD, FAN, SPSS, etc.) for project work and self-study.

The FH JOANNEUM Kapfenberg campus houses two state-of-the-art labs for Energy and Mobility to provide our students with the best possible learning environment:

Energy Analytics Lab

Our new Energy Analytics Lab, a digital energy research lab virtually linked with our cooperation partner Campus 02, will be available from spring 2020. Students studying the specialisation in Sustainable Energy Technologies will be able to use the lab to explore current and future trends of energy supply and energy use, especially against the background of digitalisation (energy 4.0, smart grids, etc.). The lab offers modern facilities such as photovoltaic and solar modules, laboratory equipment such as storage units and heat exchangers and the latest methods in energy analytics, making it a key infrastructure for ambitious R&D projects.

Mobility Lab

The future of mobility is unstoppable and ranges from autonomous driving to drones and soft mobility. We therefore provide our students specialising in Mobility Technologies with access to a modern well-equipped Mobility Lab. The Mobility Lab offers a state-of-the-art driving simulator, a bicycle simulator, eye trackers, noise meters, etc. for projects and research in the mobility sector. Students can use this equipment to explore different influences on driving behaviour and the resulting effects. They also have access to relevant cutting-edge software for the realistic modelling and simulation of complex traffic conditions.

Chemistry and environmental lab

Students interested in the interdisciplinary field of environmental and climate management have access to a chemistry lab equipped with a photometer, a black carbon monitor, a chromatograph and other instruments for water, soil and air analyses. This facility is mainly used for laboratory practicals in the subjects ‘Applied Environmental and Analytical Laboratory’ or ‘Environmental Chemistry and Emission Control’.
