Austria. School description (Schober)


   HTBLA Wolfsberg

Gartenstrasse 1

9400 Wolfsberg




The HTL Wolfsberg, a College of Engineering with approximately 580 students, is located in Carinthia, Southern Austria. There are two main departments with the four branches automation engineering, mechatronics, industrial engineering and information technology. 

Being involved in projects like internships abroad and students exchanges via Erasmus+ or founding students’ companies, the school sets a focus on international connections.  These experiences foster the students at becoming successful at jobs like project leaders, construction engineers or software programmers. 

After five years of school the students receive a Certificate of Secondary Education and a TVE-Diploma, which is rated at Level 5 of the EQF (European Qualifications Framework). After three years of work-related experiences the graduates are officially given the title engineer, which even ranks at EQF Level 6, comparable to a Bachelor’s degree. Consequently, the teachers of the HTL are demanded to teach on a high standard in theoretical lessons as well as in work-related subjects and specific workshops and laboratories. 

Besides offering education for students from 14 to 19 years of age, there are also special classes of adult education for receiving TVE-Diplomas, as well as classes for qualified foreman, which is a special form of vocational education in Austria. In addition to that, there is even a cooperation with the FH Mittweida, a German university of applied sciences, where graduates with work experiences can get a degree of tertiary education.
