Applicants from non-European Union countries will need to use Uni Assist platform for verification of the required documents.
Undergraduate diploma (or higher)
The plant engineering course includes a module “Individual post-qualification” worth 10 ECTS. This serves for the individual acquisition of missing ECTS points in the area of the admission requirements, please see here for more information about ECTS requirements.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / German.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
Attention: if given preliminary admission, international applicants MUST provide legalised documents translated to German or English for the following documents:
Legalisation confirms the authenticity of documents, signatures and authorities that issued the document. Three scenarios are possible depending on the issuing country:
To see if and what legalisation you would need for your diploma, please refer to this Legalization of Foreign Documents in Higher Education document
B2 level (according to the European Framework of Reference)
Please also attach the following documents:
Specific requirements for Non-EU applicants:
Please be aware that the visa process can take up to 3 months, therefore you should send your application as early as possible! For more details on the visa application please visit the following webpage: www.oead.at
In Upper Austria there are many internationally-successful plant construction companies. Plant constructors, as project managers on plant construction projects, conclude the plant purchase contract under consideration of the framework conditions (costs, deadlines, performance guarantee). They are the interface to the customer or the supplier and coordinate the participating specialist departments and sub-contractors, such as process engineering, design, automation, construction, assembly, accounting or the legal department. plant constructors work mostly internationally and need excellent english and leadership skills.
The students acquire knowledge in engineering and business-legal subjects and train their skills in the areas of project management and English.
Planning and construction of process engineering systems
“Balance of plant” – the entire area outside the actual process engineering plant, such as: concrete and steel construction, pipelines and transport technology, insulation and corrosion protection, infrastructure, plant automation, safety technology
Purchase and acceptance testing of equipment parts, transport to the construction site, storage, assembly, assembly acceptance
Materials and welding processes relevant to plant construction (delivery conditions, test certificates, weldability, testing of welds, corrosion protection measures, causes and occurrence of material failure)
Evaluation of plant construction projects and definition of measures to avoid repetition of errors
Economic and legal skills
Project management and control (deadline monitoring and cost monitoring) for plant construction projects
Risk analysis and claim management for plant construction projects
international contract law and elements and design options for plant construction contracts
Basics of Austrian and international tax law relevant to plant engineering
In-depth knowledge of English – presentation, discussion and negotiation as well as reporting
Assumption of coordination and management tasks
Team and communication skills in an international context
Working in project teams.
Plant constructors, as project managers for plant construction projects, handle the concluded plant purchase agreement, taking into account the general conditions (budgeted costs, deadlines, performance guarantee). They are the interface to the customer or the supplier and coordinate the relevant specialist departments such as process engineering, construction, automation, construction, assembly, accounting, and the legal department. Plant manufacturers are mostly internationally active and therefore need not only social and leadership skills but also excellent English skills.
Graduates of the master’s degree in plant engineering are able to plan, implement, monitor and also manage projects for the construction of process engineering plants. The core industries in which they can be used include, on the one hand, all plant construction companies that build (partial) plants for the process industry , on the other hand, all larger companies in the process industry that have new plants built or expanded.
