Student projects

The Master’s degree programme gives you the best possible preparation for your future career. You will work on practical projects, ideally conducted in cooperation with our partners in business and industry. The project teams are organised in small groups and supported by specialists on the programme. Together with our industry partners, which include Asfinag, Böhler, ÖBB, OMV, Holding Graz, RHIMagnesita, MVG and voestalpine and regional energy suppliers, you will explore current topics in the environmental, energy and mobility sectors. Our students often go on to make these research topics the subject of their Master’s thesis. This opens up excellent job and career prospects.

Current student projects

Interdisciplinary mobility project

In the first semester of their studies, students are assigned with a mobility problem every major city is facing: “how create a more sustainable the mobility system”. This question is answered by combining input from the lectures “Mobility Infrastructure”, “Trends in International and Urban Mobility” and “Smart Urban and Regional Planning”.

The students’ main task is to research and create an improved mobility system with the focus on certain scenarios. One project focusing on Graz is, for instance, titled “Town Centres as Bicycle-Friendly shopping malls”. In the project, students have to research predominant mobility modes, which routes (length and time) are possible per mobility mode, research the existing network for weaknesses and create an improved network design to determine the city potential for walkability and bikeability to reach important points of interest (e.g.: city centre, shops, schools, doctors, …). At the end of the semester the students present their recommendations to a jury.

Sustainable Supply Chain Management

What can be done to increase the energy and resource efficiency of industrial companies and make them more climate friendly? This core question provides the starting point for the semester project “Sustainable Supply Chain Management”. In this project, students explore ways and means of achieving greater sustainability and efficiency for industrial supply chains. The project is kicked off with a guest lecture on “Sustainability in Industry” delivered by an expert from RHIMagnesita AG. The project groups use this information to develop different strategies and recommendations for sustainable purchasing in the fields of “Transport”, “Energy”, “Services” and “Packaging”. The recommendations for action are finally presented to a jury of experts from RHIMagnesita AG.
