The HTL Moedling, a vocational higher school for 14- to19-year-olds, covers everything education has to offer: from the building industry to the electronics sector, mechanical and industrial engineering or wood technology and interior design. Austria’s biggest school boasts a campus of 25 hectares, which includes modern student halls, large sports facilities, a modern restaurant with 600 seats, a theatre and a band. “Students especially appreciate the green surroundings and the informal atmosphere. Despite our size, we create a family atmosphere because our school is divided into eleven separate departments

with their own structures, workshops and top-class learning facilities,”Ing. Mag. Harald Hrdlicka, director, says. The school prides itself on participating in hundreds of national and international competitions every year.“Some of our students recently came second in an invention competition in Los Angeles,” Harald Hrdlicka adds. Job prospects look exceptional for HTL graduates as the school’s “unemployment rate is under one per cent”. Certainly, the HTL’s own ‘Recruiting Fair’ is one of the reasons for this as it invites over 60 Austrian companies to recruit graduates each year. To attract the future generations of HTL

students, the innovative ‘Kinder HTL’ invites children in the last week of their summer holidays to playfully learn how it is to study and live at the HTL Moedling. www.htl.moedling.at
