Remaining close to our regional customers is vital. Being active at three campuses (Basel, Brugg/Windisch and Olten) places expertise in close proximity to the customer.
Knowledge and technology transfer
The quality of the knowledge imparted and of the teaching is guaranteed by experienced teaching staff, who have practice-oriented knowledge, and research assistants in possession of the latest know-how. To help put into practice what has been learnt in as straightforward and concise a manner as possible, the School makes use of a number of strategies. We draw on projects awarded by companies, application-oriented tasks and a broad cross-section of teaching and learning modes.

We offer special international programmes of education and, with cooperation treaties in place with over 130 partner-universities, we are in a position to secure an intensive exchange of teaching staff and students throughout the world.
