Innsbruck, 14th September 2020 – The starter’s pistol has been fired for applications to Tyrol’s first dual study program. From autumn 2021, MCI Innsbruck’s bachelor course “Smart Building Technologies” will offer an integrative combination of study and work. Each of the six semesters is divided into a period of study and a practice block of several months in an innovative partner company such as ATP. This means that all students will have a paid job for the entire length of the course.
ATP invests in the future
Gerald Hulka, an ATP partner in Innsbruck, played a major role in the implementation of the dual study program. So he is even more excited by this fascinating combination of theory and practice. “Building technology is a sector of the future with huge career opportunities for young people with big ideas,” he says, with conviction. “This dual study program is, for us, also an investment in the future of ATP, because it also guarantees the best possible education for our employees. Every year, we will offer two students an entry into a secure future with excellent perspectives.”
The focus of the new course is the development, optimization, and application of intelligent solutions to the coming challenges in the areas of building technology, infrastructure, climate neutrality, and ecological sustainability.
Participants in the course can expect a broadly-based training in the field of energy-efficient and resource-saving building and an introduction to intelligent solutions in the areas of automation, IT, and heating, climate, ventilation, and sanitation technology.
Other partner companies of the newly developed dual study program who, like ATP, are contributing their expertise as well as providing jobs and substantial financial contributions include Ortner Ges.m.b.H, Planlicht, Spiegltec, Hella Sonnen- und Wetterschutztechnik, Eurotherm, and iDM Energiesysteme – Pletzer Gruppe.
