Centre for E-Governance

  • Description
  • The Cen­tre for E-​Governance is a lead­ing Aus­trian com­pe­tence cen­tre for edu­ca­tion in E-​Government and related dis­ci­plines, includ­ing law, organ­i­sa­tional the­ory and infor­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy. Our objec­tive is for stu­dents to gain the abil­ity to analyse prob­lems and find solu­tions. Stu­dents learn to work on their own and in teams through dif­fer­ent teach­ing for­mats which include lec­tures, work­shops, case stud­ies and projects. In the master’s courses stu­dents work on two writ­ten assess­ments, a team project and a Mas­ter Thesis.

    Teaching

    Stu­dents can choose from a wide range of post-​graduate pro­grams, includ­ing sem­i­nars, aca­d­e­mic cer­tifi­cates, and Master’s degrees. The courses are offered in a part-​time for­mat so that stu­dents can study whilst pur­su­ing their work and careers.

    The lec­tur­ers are Aus­trian and inter­na­tional aca­d­e­mics, experts and pro­fes­sion­als from a range of renowned insti­tu­tions and Gov­ern­ment agen­cies. This pro­vides stu­dents with a the­o­ret­i­cal frame­work as well as usable and applic­a­ble solu­tions. It is the com­bi­na­tion of the­ory and prac­tice which gives our stu­dents the most up-​to-​date infor­ma­tion and knowl­edge in the area of E-​Government.

    The Cen­tre for E-​Government offers sup­ple­men­tal courses in Infor­ma­tion Secu­rity Man­age­ment and ITIL cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in coop­er­a­tion with the Cen­tre of Applied Infor­mat­ics. Once stu­dents have com­pleted their Master’s degree, they can con­tinue their stud­ies with an Exec­u­tive MBA in Infor­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Tech­nol­ogy run in coop­er­a­tion with Alaska Pacific University.

    Research

    Our con­tin­u­ing com­pe­tence has been hon­oured by var­i­ous grants received by the fed­eral pub­lic admin­is­tra­tion of Lower Aus­tria, the Aus­trian state and the Euro­pean Com­mu­nity. Suc­cess­ful projects include Kom­mu­nal­net, a plat­form that pro­vides munic­i­pal­i­ties with the infra­struc­ture nec­es­sary for pro­vid­ing E-​Government ser­vices. Some of the projects we are presently work­ing on are WE-​GO, which aims to enhance west­ern Balkan e-​Government exper­tise, and E-​DEM, based on a work­ing group in the Aus­trian Chancellery.

    Our Partners

    Our part­ners include the Aus­trian Chan­cellery (BKA), the Aus­trian Fed­eral Com­put­ing Cen­tre (BRZ), Unisys Aus­tria and the Lower Aus­trian School for Munic­i­pal Admin­is­tra­tion and Acad­emy for Fed­eral Affairs ( Gemein­de­v­er­wal­tungss­chule und Kom­mu­nalakademie). We have acted as aca­d­e­mic part­ner for a num­ber of EU-​funded projects.
