Thanks to outstanding research, Linz is continuing to attract the attention of internationally active high-tech companies.
Upper Austria is not only a large industrial area, but also a region sporting high-level research and innovation. This fact is increasingly more apparent, especially as major international corporations look to select a location and seek out close proximity to top educational institutions: and they choose Linz.
In recent years, there has been no other area in which base-knowledge research has been so rapidly turned into concrete applications. What used to be a lab application yesterday is quickly turning up tomorrow in mobile phones made by some of the world's largest and successful providers. Because things are moving so quickly from generation to generation, new cell phone models appear annually. 5G is just around the corner and mobile phones, laptops and tablets must be re-designed over and over again. They need to be smaller, faster, better and less prone to errors.
Are you interested in building new things and exploring data transmission, radar, radio waves and the like? Then the JKU and the academic degree program "Electronics and Information Technology" may be the right fit for you. And - just like Hedy Lamarr - why shouldn't the next Steve Jobs come from Austria?
