Johannes Kepler University Linz

Introduction

About Us

Young, but oh so impressive. At just a little over 50 years old, the JKU has experienced quite a bit - and has a lot to offer: an outstanding selection of academic degree programs on one hand and on the other, it is a place to be happy. And instead of scattering faculties and departments throughout the city, almost all of the departments are available in one, well-designed modern location. In addition to shorter distances and being able to save time getting from one place to the other, the campus environment supports one important thing in particular: communication. Students and professors spend time together both in and out of the classroom.

Strategy

The JKU's development plan outlines a defined course of action designed to actively support the university's development and strategic growth. The plan aims to continue sharpening the university's profile, expanding on its strengths, and addressing new topics as part of an intra-systematic development.

In keeping with line with its mission, the university aims to structurally enhance its profile by continuing to develop its organizational system along a matrix. This includes creating interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research groups and supporting a research approach that provides internal, competitive university funding. Research-led teaching will include a quality offensive to develop interdisciplinary degree programs such as NaWiTec, Medical Engineering, and Business Psychology. In addition, advancements in modern engineering in Linz include combining core expertise in mechatronics and polymer engineering to create a new program in mechanical engineering.
