  • 9 am - 6 pm
  • St. Pölten UAS, Large Assembly Hall
  • Contact: Alois Frotschnig | Head of Department Media and Digital Technologies, Academic Director Media Technology (BA)

In the project semester, students of the bachelor degree programme Media Technology as well as EPS students work exclusively on one project for three months. They self-responsibly implement their own ideas as a team and go through the entire project cycle, from the initial brainstorming to the development of a prototype.

In the interim presentations, they provide insights into the ongoing work as well as the first interim results, thus allowing teachers, fellow students and an interested audience to gain an impression of the diversity and professionalism of the project contributions.

Different Brilliant showcases master theses with innovative research approaches from Austria’s higher education institutions in the field of design. It provides insights for students to conceptualise their own research methodology. A range of original and outstanding research approaches underline the potential of new insights.

In addition to well established methods like analyses, questionnaires, expert or in-depth interviews, there are new research possibilities available today. Media design and production can be investigated through the lens of empirical evidence and artistic practice. Nowadays research in the design space connects, modifies and implements methods from various fields.
