ABSTRACT

This paper is an analysis of 521 students who were successful applicants for the dual/cooperative study program Production Technology and Organisation (PTO) at the University of Applied Sciences FH Joanneum in Graz/Austria. Due to the Bologna Process, the program had to change its organisational structure from an 8-semester diploma program to 6-semester Bachelor + 4-semester Master program. There were 289 successful applicants for the diploma program and until write the year here 232 for the PTO bachelor. FH Joanneum requires a multistep admission procedure, resulting in a ranking of the applicants. According to this ranking, about 35 applicants per year are accepted. The ranking procedure consists of a two-part written test, the applicant’s previous grades, vocational experience and a personal interview. A short overview is given regarding the relationship of the aforementioned components, as well as the relationship between these and academic success in the program. Moreover, a comparison was done between diploma and bachelor alumni, as well as the success rates of females versus males. The statistical evaluations are partly based on the results of alumni.
