We respect the personality of each individual, his or her interests and needs.
Our education for young individuals is versatile, practical and oriented with an outlook towards the future. It is combined with the development of higher social and technical skills for future management personnel.
Forming our world
With our Austrian and international partners, we are working on the sustainable utilisation of the living and natural material wood.
Wood is my future! The best outlook with Holztechnikum Kuchl.
Technical and social skills – the secret of our success.
In addition to technical qualifications, the professional working world requires social skills, such as a sense of responsibility, good communication skills and the ability to be a team-player. At Holztechnikum Kuchl, in the classroom and in the dormitories, special value is placed on personal development in conjunction with outstanding expert knowledge.

Three-fourths of the students at Holztechnikum Kuchl, who come from all over Austria, South Tyrol (Italy) and Bavaria (Germany), reside in the dormitory. This comprehensive support provides our graduates with good prospects for job security in the future.
