Info for entering Bachelor students in Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering

Info for Bachelor students in Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering

The two main institutes for training in Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering are:
Institut für Elektronische Musik und Akustik (IEM) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (KUG), Inffeldgasse 10, Tel.: 389-3170
Institut für Signalverarbeitung und Sprachkommunikation at the Technical University Graz (TUG), Inffeldgasse 12, Tel.: 873-7459.

In order to prove that you have the necessary artistic aptitude to enter this study program, you must pass an Entrance Exam at KUG.

After you have passed the Entrance Exam, you have two options:

Admission to the Kunstuniversität (KUG)

  1. Pick up the green folder beginning on September 4, at the Welcome Center, Lichtenfelsgasse 21
    Fill out the form
  2. Take the green folder and the following documents to the KUG Studien- und Prüfungsabteilung, Leonhardstraße 15, Parterre:

    - identity document with a valid photo (=passport)
    - graduation certificate (Matura-, Abiturzeugnis)
    - social insurance number
  3. Your data will be recorded and you will receive a remittance slip so that you can pay the student fee.

  4. After the student fee has been deposited in the KUG bank account (takes about 3 to 5 work days after payment), you will be admitted as a regular student, your data will be automatically transferred to TUG, and you can register for the courses.

Admission to the Technical University (TUG)

  • After you have passed the entrance exam, you will receive confirmation of this in the KUG Student Division (Studienabteilung der Kunstuniversität Graz). With this confirmation slip, go to the TUG Studienabteilung, Rechbauerstraße 12/1, and register for the Bachelor’s program in Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering (similar procedure as at KUG).
  • After you have successfully registered at TUG (=your student fee has been received by the KUG accounts dept.), take your admission confirmation slip, your enrolment log, and a passport photo to the KUG Studienabteilung, Leonhardstraße 15.

Please make note of the different registration deadlines at the two universities!

Continuing Studies

In subsequent semesters, your re-registration to the university (KUG or TUG) where you are registered is sufficient. This university then automatically advises the other university that you are continuing your studies.

Instrument Instruction, Ear Training 1

During your study program in Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering it is required that you take 4 semesters of Instrument Instruction as a compulsory subject. The piano is the instrument taught. If you have excellent prior training in another instrument, there is the option of taking an entrance exam in IGP 2nd Instrument.
You must take Instrument Instruction 1 to 4 in four consecutive semesters. You can begin this study in Instruction Instrument – and also Ear Training 1 – in the third semester, after you have passed the exams in the following courses:
