Student projects

This Master’s degree programme focuses on practical experience as well as theory-based content. Working as part of a team, you will be responsible for a project of your choice to be completed for a real-life customer over the first two semesters. Your project team will include Bachelor’s students who will help to organise the projects under your direction. This exercise will help to kick-start your professional career: you will have to communicate with the customers and implement their specifications, while also proving your communication and organisation skills as the team leader.

Water Jug Race & Festival of the Future

Over the years, the Water Jug Race has become an integral part of the event calendar in the Bad Gleichenberg region and sees itself as an instrument of sport and social integration. Each year, sporting fans from the region gather together to take part in various runs from a competitive relay to a creative run, all organised by FH JOANNEUM students.

The event is independently planned and finally implemented by students in cooperation with the Festival of the Future, which started out as a sustainable children’s and youth festival in 2008 and traditionally takes place on the same day. The Master’s students who act as project managers are responsible for the entire event – from theoretical planning to fund raising and organisation. They are supported by students on the Bachelor’s course
